HP launches new range of wide format printers
HP Inc. announced a range of DesignJet and PageWide XL Pro devices to deliver advanced photo and colour quality, enhanced precision, and new graphics application potential - all while driving improvements in sustainability.
“As our customers continue to grapple with uncertain business conditions following a uniquely challenging past couple of years, we know that expanding their print application reach, and ability to move fast, and outstanding colour and graphics performance define their large format printing needs,” said Daniel Martinez, General Manager, Large Format Business, HP. “This is why we’re introducing the new HP DesignJet Z Pro and HP PageWide XL Pro series. Both portfolios are designed to help users navigate uncertain demand, respond to tighter deadlines, and unlock untapped potential in their own offerings.”
To mark the 30-year anniversary of the very first DesignJet product, HP released two new DesignJets.
The new HP DesignJet Z6 Pro and Z9+ Pro offer PSPs and Geographic Information System (GIS) analysts the highest professional photo quality and precision, along with leading security features. With chromatic RGB HP Vivid Photo Inks, HP DesignJet Z Pro users can now achieve 93% Pantone coverage – 26% more gamut compared to the previous generation – and produce prints with the image quality of a 12-ink printer with just nine inks.
HP also announced three new HP PageWide XL Pro printers for retail PSPs and repro houses. Additionally, users will also be able to leverage new short-term applications including the potential to print on boards, card stock, and paper from A2 to B1, and thickness up to 10mm.
The new HP DesignJet portfolio and HP PageWide XL Pro 10000 printer are all rated as ENERGY STAR 3.0 compliant and EPEAT registered, meaning they use less energy and are certified as environmentally preferred products.
The new HP DesignJet Z Pro printers are also made of 30% recycled plastic, using over eight 16.9-oz (0.5-L) bottles worth of ocean-bound plastic, and are fully compatible with large format FSC-certified papers, a range of recyclable HP media, and free, convenient take-back program for certain HP media.
The new portfolios are fully compatible with HP Eco Carton Cartridges, achieving up to 80% reduction in plastic. The outer carton of Eco-Carton cartridges can be disposed of through local cardboard recycling.
Inks for the HP PageWide XL Pro 10000 printer are UL ECOLOGO Certified and verified for Nordic Swan Ecolabel printing companies. HP PageWide XL and DesignJet prints are recyclable, returnable, or non-hazardous and safe for disposal.
