ccording to Midcomp’s director Navin Jeewanlall, HP PageWide XL printers offer fast large-format monochrome and colour printing with up to 50% savings in total production costs, allowing print service providers (PSPs) to grow their business with GIS map printing and POS poster printing to generate new revenue streams.
‘HP PageWide technology consists of more than 200 000 nozzles on a stationary print bar and spans the width of the page, enabling breakthrough printing speeds. Extended time between service station cycles also enables outstanding sustained productivity capacity,’ Navin asserts.
The HP PageWide XL Pro 10000, 8200 and 5200 printer series enable PSPs to print on boards, cardstock and paper from A2 to B1 in thicknesses of up to 10mm and to use water-based HP pigment inks to create recyclable prints from responsibly sourced FSC-certified papers.
Navin notes that the HP PageWide XL Pro 10000 printer is the fastest in the series with print speeds up to 30 A1 pages/min. It features an ultrafast processor, native PDF management and HP SmartStream, which enables PSPs to deliver full projects three times faster by printing mixed outputs of both CAD drawings and presentation boards. It can integrate into existing Caldera and Onyx Rip workflows.
Further benefits are 10 times lower energy consumption than comparable LED printers, low running costs for both CAD drawings and posters with up to five-litre original HP Eco-Carton ink cartridges and intuitive workflows for a fast-learning curve with simple application instructions through HP Learn.
Free up operator time with a versatile stacker, inline folders, auto-switch and up to six rolls.
The HP PageWide XL Pro Series provides cost-effective production printing of short-term posters on rolls, sheets and boards at printing speeds of up to 700m² or 1 000 B1 posters/hour.
‘It enables PSPs to consolidate the capacity of their fleet into a single device that prints different sizes efficiently and features an end-to-end cut-sheet workflow (with simple application instructions) via HP’s first large-format auto sheet feeder and versatile stacker,’ Navin notes. ‘The PageWide XL and XL Pro Series also provides output that’s ready for finishing or delivery right away thanks to instant-dry prints on compatible substrates.’
The HP PageWide XL Pro 5200 printer series enables PSPs to expand into two-sided, short-term retail posters and send them to print easily through HP SmartStream at speeds up to 20 A1 pages/min.
‘They can deliver full projects two times faster by printing mixed outputs of both CAD drawings and presentation boards and at 10 times lower energy consumption rates, than comparable LED printers,’ Navin maintains. ‘Additionally, intuitive workflows for a fast-learning curve with simple application instructions are available through HP Learn.’
The HP PageWide XL 8200 printer series is a powerful, efficient monochrome and colour production plotter printer that allows PSPs to produce GIS map printing and POS posters at breakthrough speeds. In addition, proven HP PageWide Technology gets the job done with far less operator attention.
The HP PageWide XL 4200 and 5200 printer series are both available as a multifunction device with integrated 1 200dpi scanner or printer. They offer a 30-second first page out and take up to four rolls with a 100-page top stacker. In addition, they produce fade- and moisture-resistant prints with HP PageWide XL pigment ink and offer PIN printing, self-encrypting HDD with AES-256, Secure Disk Erase and IPSec.
