Today was an exciting day here at Lightning Labels. We took delivery of our new state of the art digital label press, the HP-Indigo WS4500. Weighing in at just over 10,000 lbs you can see this is quite a beast. We are excited because we know this is the best digital label press that money can buy, and we will be able to produce higher quality labels than ever before.
HP flew out a technician from the west coast to install the machine, and above was where we stood at the end of the day. It is going to take all week to get this puppy up and running, and several more weeks before we can ramp up to full production.
We have expanded our space into the unit next door that was vacant, so we now take up four full units in the building for a total of 12,600 square feet. So we are able to dedicate a special room for the new press, a clean room that we will keep climate controlled to ensure the highest quality printing.
