HP debut new wide latex printers

HP Latex 700 and 800 Printer series family

HP Inc. has introduced a range of new latex large-format printers solutions. The new HP Latex range consists of four devices – the HP Latex 700 and 800, and the HP Latex 700W and 800W –  which offer white ink capability for the first time in this category.

“When you think about HP Latex, imagine the unique ability to say yes to every customer request, regardless of fast-changing schedule or application demands,” said Guayente Sanmartin, General Manager, Large Format Business, HP. “The new Latex 700 and 800 portfolio will allow PSPs to win big by navigating customer challenges in the next normal and embracing more ambitious projects – safe in the knowledge their work will deliver.”

Updated printheads possessing more nozzles and producing speeds of up to 36 m2/hr (388 ft2/hr) allow the HP Latex 800 and 800W to offer 50% higher productivity levels compared to previous HP models, the company said. Print jobs executed on the new 700/800 Series will deliver with vivid colors and finer image and text details, even at faster print speeds.

In related news, HP has also introduced an updated Latex Print and Cut portfolio that is fully compatible with the Latex 700 and 800 Series. Equipped with the latest Raster Image Processor (RIP) software and completely new contour cutters, the devices allow for improved usability – making jobs easier and more intuitive than ever for signage and decorative printed applications.

Revamped HP PageWide XL

HP also announced new additions to the HP PageWide XL suite of large-format printers. The new range includes the following printers:

PageWide XL 3920 MFP
PageWide XL 4200 Printer and MFP
PageWide XL 4700 Printer and MFP
PageWide XL 5200 Printer and MFP
PageWide XL 8200 Printer

The new 4200, 4700 and 5200 models feature a larger front panel – increased to 15.6 inches (from 8 inches) – it is easier for users to preview real-time scans and undertake more complex printing tasks. Additionally, for the first time, users can carry out post-editing tasks, including crop, contrast, brightness, and rotation directly from the panel.

The HP Latex 700 and 800 Series, the updated HP Latex Cut and Print Plus Solution, as well as the new additions to the PageWide XL portfolio, are expected to be available from all major markets starting now.
