HP to Unveil 10 Digital Presses, Including 29" HP Indigo at drupa
New HP Inkjet Web Press models
The new high-speed HP T410 and T360 Inkjet Web Press systems offer increased print speeds of up to 800 feet per minute in monochrome – up to 25 percent faster than previous models – while continuing to offer color print speeds of up to 600 fpm. To achieve this improved performance, the presses feature new advanced inkjet printhead technology and nanotechnology pigment inks that can support higher speeds with no compromise in image quality.
The HP T230 Inkjet Web Press incorporates the new printheads and inks to increase print speed up to 400 feet per minute for both color and monochrome, with full color density for maximum quality.
These improvements will help PSPs reach new markets and increase profitability for high-volume applications such as book publishing, direct marketing and transpromotional mail, where the HP Inkjet Web Press portfolio already has led a shift to digital printing. HP Inkjet Web Presses have produced a cumulative total of more than 10 billion pages since the first system was installed in 2009.
The HP T360 and HP T410 are expected to be available this fall as new systems or as upgrades from the HP T350 and HP T400, respectively. The HP T230, expected to be available by the end of 2012, also will be offered as an upgrade from the HP T200 press.
Solution partners also introduced new media for the HP Inkjet Web Press models, such as Utopia Inkjet gloss media from Appleton Coated for direct mail and publishing applications. ColorPRO papers will now include inkjet coated papers from Sappi and Appleton Coated, designed to deliver superior print quality with the HP Inkjet Web Press.
Expanding the portfolio of HP finishing solutions, Muller Martini – a global leader in print finishing systems based in Switzerland – will demonstrate a new 42-inch SigmaLine inline digital book production system at drupa, featuring increased operating speed to match the higher speed of the new HP Inkjet Web Press models.
