At Fespa 2017, which began yesterday, HP Inc. introduced the new HP Latex 3600 and 3200 printers, flexible signage printing option for the HP Scitex 17000 press, and HP PrintOS for Latex and Scitex HDR presses.
Introduced in 2009, water-based HP Latex technology now has more than 40,000 Latex printers installed worldwide. HP also introduced the HP Latex 300 Series Print and Cut solutions at ISA Sign Expo 2017 in April.
The 3.2 meter HP Latex 3600 and HP Latex 3200 printers support higher volume printing and an improved monthly duty cycle. The HP Latex 3200 is geared toweard PSPs that want to produce a range of applications with high productivity, in high quality for retail/outdoor advertising, events/exhibitions, vehicle graphics, and interior décor.
The HP Latex 3600 is designed for even larger PSPs needing long-run, uninterrupted printing. It can handle production peaks of up to 35,000 square meters per month and is well suited for dedicated application production, such as banners, backlits, wallcoverings, and retail or event signage.
The new HP Latex 3600 and HP Latex 3200 printers offer a special tiling mode, with an improved colour consistency; reduced media waste, saving up to one linear meter per roll, using the HP Latex Media Saver; and lower labour costs, a single operator can manage up to four printers simultaneously.
The new 54-inch HP Latex 315 Print and Cut and 64-inch HP Latex 335 Print and Cut are dual-device solutions for simultaneous printing and cutting in a single workflow.
HP also announced commercial availability of HP Durable Backlit Fabric that can resist damage during post-processing or light box installation. HP Durable Backlit Fabric will be available in October in a variety of widths up to 2.95 m (116 inches). Widths of up to 3.2 m (126 in) are expected to be available by the end of 2017.
Paper-based signage production for indoor and outdoor applications using flexible substrates is now supported with the Flexible Media Loader for the HP Scitex 17000 Corrugated Press.
