The company has two B2 HP Indigo systems, one each for Melbourne
and Sydney. Nankervis says, “The B2 sheet size gives us a serious point of difference in the digital short run,
on demand market. We can produce digital products to the B2 space like A2 posters, landscape books, and presentation folders.”
CMYKhub also runs a Scodix digital embellishing press in both Melbourne and Sydney (also supplied and serviced by Currie Group).
Nankervis says, “The Indigo quality coupled with the range of embellishments the Scodix machine can produce, allows our resellers to create low cost, but high perceived value short run orders.”
The CMYKhub Indigo and offset production is rounded out by a comprehensive roll-fed and flatbed wide format production suite in the eastern states, with WA completing its installation in January.
CYMKhub now has a total of nine HP Indigo presses in its Australian network - by far the most of any local printer - and has had no trouble finding people to run the presses.
Nankervis says, “When we put a new one in lots of people put their hands up to train on them. We have had offset guys, prepress people
looking to upskill, even a couple of finishing staff.”
“We print to satisfy requirements of resellers, so deadlines can’t be moved because of machine down time. With the HP Indigo we really appreciate the service, support and back-up we have from Currie Group. All the Indigo presses are also self- diagnosing, and we have a 24-hour hotline to HP Indigo in Israel if we need to talk to someone there.”
David Currie says, “Currie Group is one of only two authorised HP Indigo trainers around the world. Thanks to the investment we have made we are able to train HP Indigo users around the country, both to operate the press and where appropriate to provide engineering input.”
Trent Nankervis says, “Installing five HP Indigo presses in one swoop I think shows that we believe
Indigo is now very much part of the CMYKhub value proposition. Our customers – printers around the country – need to know they will be receiving the highest quality print, and on time every time. With our UV offset presses and quality matching HP Indigo digital colour presses, I think we are showing the market that we are completely committed to achieving that.” 21
