HP has introduced two new products which further expands the scope of its Latex Ink technology. The HP Designjet L28500 is a 104-inch-wide printer while the new Designjet L26500 is a 61-inch machine aimed at the soft-signage market.
Both systems use the new HP 792 Latex Designjet Inks, which, according to the company, produce rich blacks and glossy results on banners and self-adhesive vinyl, as well as compatibility with more than 500 media solutions.
“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, VP and GM, Large-format Printing Business, HP.
The new machines produce 1,200-dpi output with outdoor display permanence of up to three years unlaminated or five years laminated. The output also dries inside the printer, boosting productivity for double-sided print jobs, and allowing immediate finishing or use.
Availability of the HP Designjet L26500 Printer will vary by region beginning November 3rd. The HP Designjet L28500 Printer is expected to be available January 20, 2012.
