Underwriters Laboratory (UL) recognized DigiPRO HP Indigo compatible durable labeling products are available for the HP Indigo 4500 and 6000 presses. Label converters can speed time to market and reduce the costs associated with end product certification by leveraging the pre-tested product line.
The supplier, pressure-sensitive films manufacturer FLEXcon, said it developed the line because - while HP Indigo presses are known for photo quality printing that is ideal for high-end labels - HP Indigo inks are not known for durability.
Because HP Indigo is a digital technology, it is ideal for variable printing such as serial numbers and barcodes, the supplier said. With UL recognition of HP Indigo inks with FLEXcon substrates, FLEXcon customers can take advantage of UL's simplified product adoption process and combine both static and variable information printing. FLEXcon designed its overlaminate technologies to offer the durability required for UL-compliant labeling applications such as brand identification, warning and compliance labels for outdoor power equipment, power tools, appliances, and other devices.
"By using our UL recognized products, label converters reduce the risks of delays to market and can lower the costs associated with end product certification," said John Bennett, vice president of Product Identification, FLEXcon.
