Long-lasting experience allowed us to be a pioneering development service provider and manufacturer of OEM single sheet feeders (Bogenanleger) and finishing equipment for laser, inkjet and digital printers. With our developments we improve the overall functionality of digital printers and therefore are in a growth market. Our customers are market leaders of the office printing and digital printing market.
BDT developed for and in collaboration with HP the automatic sheet feeder for the HP Indigo 10000 and 30000 digital presses. From concept via design, hard- and software, to production HP relies on the service and the know-how of BDT
Even the automatic feeder of the previous model, the HP Indigo 5000 press, was developed by BDT, based on the BDT Wave Generator Technology.
This is what HP says:
“HP Indigo selected the Tornado Technology for the HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press since it is innovative, enabling the feed system to robustly handle a wide media gamut, from 60 gsm to 450 gsm, with automatic control and no human intervention, and the potential to extend to heavier substrates for the Indigo 30000. This will allow the press the performance envelope and operator experience that we are seeking. So far, as we continue the development and testing of the press, we see our expectations on the way to being satisfied. BDT have proven themselves to have excellent technical capabilities and to be a strong and committed partner."
