Digital Press
Breakthrough productivity for narrow-web
labels and packaging printing
Reshaping mainstream production
The HP Indigo 8000 Digital Press is a productivity game-changer that brings double the speed
to the market’s best-selling, narrow-web labels solution. Designed to handle even the longest
and most demanding jobs, the press enables converters to reshape business and move toward

The most productive labels press
High-quality, high-volume production
High resolution printing. HP Indigo’s liquid electrophotography (LEP), using HP Indigo
ElectroInk with minute ink particles, delivers crisp linework, attractive images and smooth
vignettes with a very thin ink layer that gives uniform gloss between the ink and substrate.
Widest digital colour gamut. Use up to 7 ink stations to take advantage of the extensive
colour gamut. Emulate PANTONE® colours on press using CMYK or HP IndiChrome’s 6- or
7-colour process. True spot colours can be mixed off-press with the HP IndiChrome Ink Mixing
System or ordered for outstanding Pantone-approved solids.
One Shot technology. All colour separations are laid down simultaneously in a single pass on
the substrate, for accurate and repeatable colour-to-colour registration, including on heatsensitive materials.
Colour management. The Colour Automation Package guarantees standards-matching colour
accuracy and consistency via closed-loop, fully monitored control. Built-in spectrophotometers
and software tools simplify colour management and eliminate the need for expensive
software, hardware and manual calibration processes. Create colour profiles and match
PANTONE® colours in a simple, precise process. Hit the right colour from the first to the last
label, across Indigo presses, sites and time.
Enhanced Productivity Mode. Use three-colour printing in EPM to increase throughput by
33%, with 25% less energy consumed.
Fits into any production environment. The HP Indigo 8000 Digital Press complements a fleet
with the HP Indigo WS6800 Digital Press and HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press for an agile, high
productivity environment.
Unbeatable productivity and versatility
Widest media gamut. The press supports the widest range of media in digital production
including synthetic and paper substrates from 12 to 450 microns. Print on either pre-optimised
substrates or standard off-the-shelf materials using inline or offline priming solutions.
White inks. HP Indigo ElectroInk Premium White is a versatile, opaque white, delivering up to
silk screen opacity in single print process. The ink effectively doubles the base layer opacity,
delivered in a thin white layer, fully dried and cured on impact. HP Indigo ElectroInk White for
Sleeves is a high slip ink that improves efficiency in the converting of shrink sleeves by reducing
the friction coefficient (CoF).
Unlimited designs. HP SmartStream Mosaic variable design technology enables a one-of-akind, memorable customer experience. It automatically generates millions of unique designs
from a fixed number of seed patterns and now includes colour shuffling capabilities.
Inline Priming Unit. This unique capability allows use of standard, non-treated substrates
while eliminating the need for pre-planned treatment, making the support of last-minute jobs
easier and quicker than ever before.
Security printing. Provide an end-to-end security printing solution with superior print quality
producing microtext printing as small as 0.7 pt, variable data printing (VDP) capabilities,
and integration with a variety of creation and inspection solutions from the world’s leading
End-to-end production efficiency
