HP Launches Two New Designjet Inkjet Printers
Printer ink manufacturer HP has introduced two new printers capable of handling a broader range of indoor and outdoor signage applications.
According to the firm, the new units – the HP Designjet L28500 and HP Designjet L26500 – offer better durability than eco-solvent inks.
HP's 104-inch-wide Designjet L28500 Printer delivers speeds up to 70 per cent faster than the HP Designjet L25500.
While the 61-inch HP Designjet L26500 is ideal for customers entering the growing soft-signage market, the manufacturer claimed.
Both systems feature new HP 792 Latex Designjet Inks, which produce rich blacks and glossy results on banners and self-adhesive vinyl.
They offer double-sided printing capabilities with less user intervention and more accurate, automated registration, ink cartridge users will be interested to learn.
HP said its Latex Inks provide a "consistent, reliable performance" across a variety of substrates.
"With about 9,000 HP Latex Ink systems installed worldwide, HP is offering a superior alternative to eco-solvent solutions that delivers the versatility and ease of use our customers demand while lowering their impact on the environment," said Santiago Morera, vice-president and general manager in HP's large-format printing business.
"By allowing customers to cost-effectively print a wide array of new applications and providing the training required to succeed, our updated HP Latex portfolio helps PSPs differentiate their businesses and seize new growth opportunities."
