HP has announced the release of the HP Scitex XP2300 Printer, the latest addition to its broad portfolio of large-format solutions. The company says the Scitex XP2300 Printer is the first 3.2m UV roll-to-roll press that is designed specifically for the outdoor signage market.
The HP Scitex XP2300 Printer is a four-colour UV press with 16 piezoelectric printheads, each with 256 nozzles that can image uncoated PVC, self-adhesive vinyl, mesh, woven Polyethylene, and other substrates common in the outdoor signage market, according to HP.
Shane Lucas, director HP graphic arts South Pacific says the press is ideal for the production of billboards, building wraps and other high volume outdoor signage applications.
He says, “This new printer features an array of integrated productivity features that allow signage producers to reduce operating expenses and increase profits.”
Lucas continues its low ink consumption of 180 sqm print out of one litre of ink, realised at a top speed of up to 233 sqm/hr at a resolution of up to 360 dpi, makes the digital production of high volume signage even more cost effective.
The company also says a streamlined production workflow enables RIPped files to move directly from the prepress department to the printer, and an integrated on-core collector allows users to take off printed output while the press is printing. An integrated automatic elevator adjusts the height of print heads to ensure a constant distance between media and printheads.
