HP Unveils Color Inkjet Web Press Technology, Showcases New HP Indigo Portfolio
Since introducing the industry's first latex inks for large-format printers at drupa 2008, HP has installed more than 11,000 latex printers worldwide and produced more than 54 million square meters of printed material. HP Latex Technologies also have helped PSPs enter new markets, such as wall coverings, textiles and traffic signage. Today, HP added a platen cover for the newest HP latex printers - HP Designjet L26500 and L28500- that improves loading of textile media for the production of high-value soft signage and temporary textiles.
In addition, HP said it is working with leading media suppliers to co-develop new media with ColorPRO Technology that will be available next year. From coated papers to textiles and films, media products with ColorPRO Technology are designed together with HP inks and printers to optimize printing system performance.
New FSC-certified photo and technical papers demonstrate support for responsible forest management worldwide and give PSPs a competitive advantage with environmentally conscious customers.
