Antilope Printing nv expands its department small printing with the installation of an HP Indigo 5600 Digital Press
Digital offset quality, great versatility and high productivity
Lier, 14 January 2014 – Antilope Printing nv, based in Lier, has installed an HP Indigo 5600. In doing so, the graphic business specialised in offset (Antilope Printing), cardboard (Antilope Cardboard) and creation & lay-out (Antilope Communications) offers a solution for small print runs in offset quality and this both on paper and cardboard.
Antilope Printing nv is one of the large players in the area of offset in the Benelux. Investing in innovation and technology has always been part of the corporate culture.
Thus, in 1993, Antilope Printing nv scored a world first in installing their first digital press, the Xeikon DCP-1, establishing themselves as pioneers in digital printing. Today the HP Indigo 5600 is added to a machine park that includes offset presses with 4-5-6-8 colours and a Xeikon 6000.
This new digital press prints at a competitive price in a photo quality comparable to that of offset thanks to HP's ElectroInk technology and the unique digital offset process.
The HP Indigo 5600 prints on all types of paper but also on unique substrates such as, e.g., synthetics, transparent and metallic media. With regard to paper, the press is suitable for weights of 40 to 400 g/m², coated and uncoated. An additional advantage is printing that is only visible under UV-light. This option is ideal for, e.g., plastic security cards and applying anti-counterfeiting features.
Large and small customers
Antilope Printing nv has clients in many different branches and target groups. The company has customers among large international businesses and marketing bureaus, but also among small local businesses and private individuals.
Antilope Printing nv forms part of the Antilope Group (Lier/Antwerp/Belgium), a strong and innovative graphics group built around three large pillars: commercial printing house (Antilope Printing), cardboard (Antilope Cardboard) and creation & lay-out (Antilope Communications). Under the motto 'An Eye for Quality', the Antilope group uses its newest technologies and talents for the highest quality and most complete service at every level.
