The HP Indigo 3050 was a landmark machine for the manufacturer. It was developed in 2002, just after HP’s acquisition of Indigo and made its debut at Drupa in 2004. The press was part of the second series of HP Indigo commercial colour devices and productivity levels were boosted compared with its predecessor, the 3000.
That increase in speed helped, but HP’s efforts to match offset performance went further. The machine was designed like a traditional press with a ‘plate’ and blanket using electrophotographic digital print technology – this was designed to offset ink to a plate, a heated blanket and finally onto the substrate. HP reckoned that this process benefited the substrate as it’s not heated in the same way as with toner-based systems. The press also incorporated a feeder draw rather than a suck and blow feed system.
