Over the last few years, Mohawk has gradually transformed itself from a paper company with a firm hand in the digital realm to a future-focused company that has a firm hand in the print and digital worlds. Continuing with that momentum, the company today announced the creation of the $1.5 million Mohawk Print Innovation Center in Albany.
The heart of the new center will be three new state-of-the art digital presses, the better to continue its digital-paper innovations. Those presses are:
- HP Indigo 5600: “Enabled by HP Indigo’s liquid ElectroInk technology providing prints of the highest quality, often matching or exceeding traditional offset printing quality.”
- Xerox iGen 150: “Utilizing revolutionary new matte dry toner to reproduce outstanding text and graphic images and photo-rich applications.”
- Xerox Wide Format IJP 2,000: “A wide-format digital inkjet press with capability to produce high resolution graphics and images at incredibly fast speeds (one of only 50 installations worldwide).”
In addition to aiding in the development of future digital papers, the presses will be used to produce marketing materials for Mohawk’s digital products, as well as a means to show designers just what kinds of results can be achieved using top-of-the-line digital presses and papers.
At a time when deadlines are shrinking faster than human attention spans, digital is clearly the future of print, and Mohawk is poised to be one of the trailblazers for digital-paper innovations.
