HP Unveils T400 Inkjet Press

March 16, 2011

HP yesterday introduced its new 42-inch-wide T400 web press, based on inkjet technology, with the ability to print at 600 feet per minute (183 meters per minute). 

This speed translates as producing up to 5,200 full-colour, letter-size pages per minute, which the company claims to be 44 percent faster than its closest competing system.

HP plans to make the T400 available by the end of 2011. Also this year, HP plans to introduce a new magnetic ink character recognition (MICR) system for its web press, as well as an option to use third-party coated media.

The T400 employs what HP refers to as new A50 process-colour inks and new A10 printheads (1,200-nozzles-per-inch), based on the company’s Scalable Printing Technology. HP has now introduced four versions of its inkjet-based web press, including the T200, T300, T350 and T400.

“With more than 25 installations worldwide, our inkjet web press systems are changing the business dynamics of applications such as publishing, transpromo and direct mail,” said Christopher Morgan, HP’s Senior VP, Graphics Solutions Business. Introduced in 2008, the company states that in 2010 its inkjet-based web press installations produced 1.46 billion pages.
