HP Introduces 42" Inkjet Web Press at O’Neil Data Systems EventMarch 16, 2011
Pitney Bowes is highlighting high-volume transactional/transpromotional uses for a new HP Inkjet Web Press technology. The HP T400 will become part of a new IntelliJet 42 solution for transactional/transpromotional markets, extending the range of IntelliJet size and speed configurations.
More than 1.46 billion pages were produced on HP Inkjet Web presses in 2010. The company is presently installing its first HP Inkjet Web press in Asia at book exporter CTPS’ plant in Dongguan, China.
As with all HP Inkjet Web Press models, the HP T400 prints on virtually any standard uncoated or newsprint paper, as well as on a range of coated papers. HP announced the immediate availability of new 115 and 130 gsm Jaz coated papers from Sappi for use with HP Inkjet Web Presses. The papers are now available in Europe and the Asia Pacific region, with additional weights scheduled to be available there soon.
Launch of MICR printing solution for HP Inkjet Web Presses
MICR, a technology commonly used in check printing, will soon be available for use in a wider variety of applications with the new MICR HP Inkjet Web press solution. Available for order now with new HP T300 and T350 purchases, and scheduled to be available with T200 and T400 models sold later this year, the solution consists of new black MICR ink with a print bar that inserts into expansion slots on all HP Inkjet Web presses.
The HP Inkjet Web press MICR solution enables direct and transactional mail printers to use only one pass to produce balance transfer check mailers, rebate check mailers and other popular direct mail products. This method avoids the significant document security and inventory storage demands with existing workflows, which require valuable MICR documents to be preprinted and then locked away, with additional finishing, inserting or full-color printing steps completed in subsequent steps just prior to mailing.
