I got the opportunity to see this in Israel toward the end of last year and it is really, really impressive. To see any label press running at 150m per min is quite something, an Indigo doing in 6-colours that with their quality is something else. The indication on the costs they (almost) shared tells me that the latest generation of inkjet and hybrid machines will have to move forward as well. Bodes well for digital labels when we get back to real life, certainly when Indigo delivers this it is a new normal.
