Aurora, Illinois-based Excel Displays & Packaging, an industry leader in designing and producing award-winning displays, packaging, and signage, is expanding its retail printing capabilities with the HP Scitex 15500 Corrugated Press. With this installation, Excel expects to achieve ultra-efficient, high-quality production of corrugated applications, such as point-of-purchase (POP) displays and short-run packaging.
Since 1989, Excel Displays & Packaging has combined shopper marketing and retailer expertise with innovative manufacturing capabilities to provide highly effective promotional materials to retail customers. The new digital press will help Excel further address market demands for faster turnaround times, customized output, and shorter run lengths, while also streamlining corrugated application production with a new media handling system and economic inks.
“The speed of retail never slows down, and our clients are looking to us to deliver the best solutions for their businesses,” said Brian Hutchinson, vice president of Shopper Marketing, Excel Displays & Packaging. “The HP Scitex 15500 is truly a unique provider of solutions; it delivers on quality, quantity and speed in digital, whereas you typically can only have two sides of the triangle. The HP Scitex 15500 delivers against all three, so we mean it when we say that Excel does it all – FAST…er!”
Introduced at the 2015 ISA Sign Expo, the HP Scitex 15500 Corrugated Press helps converters digitally print high-value corrugated applications. The press offers automated stack-to-stack, hands-free operation, the HP Scitex Corrugated Grip that prints on warped boards, and HP HDR230 Scitex Inks for paper board applications, driving down costs and improving the digital breakeven point. With the new press, Excel is poised to grow their business with the flexibility of digital and an optimized production floor.
