Bay Cities Installs New HP Scitex 15500 Corrugated Press

PICO RIVERA, CA (February 9, 2017) – Bay Cities, designer and direct manufacturer of packaging and displays, announced today the installation of their new, high-speed HP Scitex 15500 Corrugated Press, a game-changing printer for the corrugated industry allowing for faster turnaround time, cost efficiencies, and variable data.

This advanced digital printer will allow Bay Cities to create a wide range of packaging, displays, and signage applications to meet the quickening demands of retailers. It has the capability to print 10 times faster than Bay Cities’ original digital printer, allowing for more flexible designs and faster return on samples and short runs. By taking advantage of this new technology, Bay Cities is continuing to provide the best solutions to their customers. Digital printing is rapidly replacing offset printing throughout the industry.   

Additionally, the HP Scitex 15500 Corrugated Press offers a wide range of flexibility and versatility, including smaller quantities and variable data without the need of expensive tooling. This means Bay Cities will be able to provide more customization of prints per displays or package. Speed-to-market is another benefit of printing with the HP Scitex 15500, as it will decrease the amount of time it will take for projects to go from concept to stores.

“We are committed to enhancing our equipment for the betterment of our customers,” said Brett Kirkpatrick, COO of Bay Cities. “This machine is a game changer for our industry and will allow our customers more flexibility in their packaging and display needs.”

Currently, Bay Cities is the only company in Southern California with a machine of this speed and capability. The HP Scitex 15500 Corrugated Press prints using a 6-color process with speeds up to almost 7,000 sq. ft. per hour with no contact to the sheet and an impressive consistency of color.

Through its high-speed printing, superb quality, and cost effectiveness, the new digital printer is expected to add tremendous value to both Bay Cities and their clients. Bay Cities continues to lead the way in the corrugated space.
