Currie Group and HP are hosting a series of sessions in Australia and New Zealand for printers to test drive the HP Indigo 6r and 7r series – the reconditioned versions of the popular digital presses.

The HP Indigo 6r (pictured) is the narrow web label press, while the 7r is the commercial sheetfed digital press. The printers are reconditioned by HP Indigo at its factory in Israel and are fully warranted. Currie Group says they represent an opportunity to print with Indigo for a reduced investment level.

The narrow web 6r will be available to test drive in Melbourne, with the event slated for 12 Feb at 3.30pm. The afternoon event will also focus sporting stars, with racing car champions Shane van Gisbergen and Jamie Whincup talking about their experiences on the race track.

Kellie Northwood will be speaking on print relevance in a digital world. Hospitality including drinks and a bite to eat is provided by Currie Group.
