corrugated boards. It easily handles boards with a warp of up to 40 millimeters, automatically
flattening it and holding it down throughout the printing process. The loading table is covered
with 128 suction mat segments, positioned to ensure effective hold-down of boards with varied
dimensions.

In internal HP testing performed in January 2015,
samples of PWell E-Flute corrugated board with
Graph+ liner were printed in POP Production in
"Corrugated appearance" on an HP Scitex 11000
Industrial Press using HP HDR230 Scitex Inks and
were tested within 72 hours of printing. Boards were
folded once through 180 degrees to one direction
to simulate a common finishing stage in printed
box production. No cracking of the image layer was
observed. Rub resistance was rated greater than
4 on coated media when tested in accordance with
ASTM D-5264 on a scale of 1 (poor) to 5 (excellent).
Smearing tests demonstrated excellent smear
resistance when evaluated by running a one-test cycle
using a Taber 5750 Linear Abraser with additional
weight of 1350 grams at 25 cycles/minute. Internal HP
testing as of March 2015 comparing the rub resistance
of HP HDR230 Scitex Inks to leading competitors
demonstrated significantly greater surface durability.
