Dion Places Second In HP’s Indigo 8000 Print Challenge

Dion digital team holding the prize for 2nd place win in HP's 8000 Challenge

Our incredible digital team after they participated in a challenge from HP to see how many labels they could print in a certain time period on the new 8000 press. In an eight hour shift they printed 9 tickets on two materials totaling 66,000 total feet! They were amazing!

Earlier this year, we installed a new HP Indigo 8000 digital press. The addition of this model to our two HP Indigo WS6800 digital presses has increased our productivity with faster print speeds making high-quality digital output affordable for much longer print jobs. This is just one of several acquisitions and changes Dion has made of late to provide customers with the most innovative label printing solutions.

Shortly after our install, we participated in a challenge from HP to see just how fast our team could run this press. Label printing companies from around the world entered the competition, and while the speeds of this press were estimated to be double those of the HP Indigo WS6800, we all waited anxiously to discover what our actual output would be.

We were thrilled with our results! Printing over 66,000 feet in an eight hour shift, Dion placed 2nd in the competition! We printed nine SKUs and used 3 different substrates, so while this was part of a challenge from HP, it was also a real day of work for our team and they participated with the same gusto they bring to the workplace daily. We are so proud of our digital team, not only for their results in this challenge but because they go above and beyond to bring our partners the best quality printed packaging available at all times.

We at Dion have no intention of resting on our laurels. We work constantly to improve the experience of each of our partners, whether that’s adding new presses to expand productivity or being on the lookout for the latest options to become a more sustainable printer. If you want to work with a company who provides you with superior quality labels and unparalleled service, Dion Label Printing is the printer for you!
