HP Indigo Long-run Wallpaper
HP Inc. in January 2018 introduced its HP Indigo Wallpaper, a substrate-driven technology to leverage the Indigo 20000 press for wallpaper manufacturing. HP explains this system provides gravure quality with the benefits of on-demand printing.
In addition to short-run production, the new HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press Wallpaper solution is capable of producing high-volume printing at 16,307 square feet per hour with a 29-inch width. The Indigo 20000 is programmed for repeat, frameless printing, which explains HP, makes it ideal for repeated pattern wallpaper applications and more. Wallpapers for the press are available to HP customers through suppliers such as Felix Schoeller and Van Merksteijn.
HP also recently announced a new range of durable textiles certified for HP Latex printers to produce soft signage and décor applications, including curtains and blinds, cushions, lampshades, and bags, on materials made from 100 percent cotton, cotton linen or polyester. Some of the new textiles can also achieve washability with a heating process after printing. HP Latex water-based inks now also received ECO PASSPORT Certification from Oeko-Tex for textile applications.
