HP have released the next generation of their popular 1.6m latex printers.
There have been significant improvements in many areas with better resolution and colour gamut, better productivity, more accurate printing in long drops for murals and lower curing temperatures which allow an even greater range of medias to be printed.
Overcoat means no requirement for laminate on latex instant dry prints.
Latex printers always had good scratch resistance but now with overcoat they eliminate the need for laminate unless it is being used to increase the UV life of the print.
The new white Latex ink is amazing! Not only does white ink enable you to deliver a new range of products with higher margins to customers but it is the most opaque and white ink available so perfect for printing items like window graphics and onto specialty stickers like metallic foils. Early users have reported that the white ink is stunning. "Quite simply put, it is superb. The impressive ink density achievable together with the pure whiteness of the colour, exceeds expectations." "In so many printers, white ink typically comes with a host of challenges involving excessive cleaning to keep the printheads unblocked and firing correctly, together with the frustration of nozzle dropout during production." Overall productivity improvements The new onboard job management functionality, which allows you to send new job files to the printer while busy running other ones. It also makes it quick and easy to resend jobs already printed by choosing them directly from the printers' front display panel even while still printing another job. These then start printing as soon as the previous prints stop, keeping production time optimised." "Access to the print zone has been dramatically modified, with the entire curing zone now raising to ease access to both the print zone and media loading input areas." "The new take-up assembly starts with a simple rotation of the flange and auto tensions to keep the take-up under constant tension. This feature, combined with the new media advance calibration systems, helps keep those long length prints running to a high level of accuracy for that important paneling work. The new printer also boasts a new printhead which even further improves the high quality previously achieved." New improved printheads mean longer life and each speed mode now produces a higher quality so a print that might have needed to be printed previously Versatility — you can do a lot more with this printer The printer's multi-layer white and colour modes allow you to explore specialty printing in all areas. Metallic foils, vinyl, wallcoverings and clear window display products print with ease without sacrificing the all-important function of being a hardworking printer that confidently runs non-stop heavy production. Lower curing temperatures are also good for new eco medias being requested by some clients.
