HP Unveils Portfolio of New Products
These three new presses are the first to be built with a next-generation print engine using HP’s liquid electrophotographic process. They will also be the first generation of machines to employ the new HP SmartStream digital workflow portfolio—an open-environment technology designed to meet a wide range of applications and provide workflow management from job creation to fulfillment.
Journalists toured HP’s new, state-of-the-art press manufacturing facility and ink production plant in Kiryat Gat, and attended a product fair at HP Indigo headquarters in Rehovot.
At the product fair, guests got to see the new 7000, WS6000 and W7200 presses in action, as well as observe enhancements to HP’s best-selling digital press, the Indigo 5500. These include an additional feeder, in-line connection to the HP Indigo UV Coater and a kit for printing on thicker media.
There was also a tech demo and product fair involving HP’s growing portfolio of wide-format products, which took place at HP’s new Scitex manufacturing facility in Caesarea. The event featured five new superwide-format industrial printers in the HP Scitex XP line (added as the result of the product integration of NUR Macroprinters) that covered the technology gamut, including piezo, thermal, water-based, solvent, UV curable and HP’s new Latex inks—which are water-based, produce near-odorless prints, and offer high quality and consistent performance on a broad range of media.
