The AVA RIP gives customers increased color control, faster RIPing times, and a seamless workflow from file preparation to printing. The RIP increases color saturation and gamut for high-quality wall coverings as well as helping achieve realistic colors on non-white media. As part of the fully integrated solution, the software also automatically generates cut marks for the Fotoba cutter, simplifying the cutting process.
Latex Offers Broad Media Compatibility
Once the wallcovering is designed, customers choose from a range of compatible substrates from HP and industry-leading media providers. HP Latex Printing Technologies have been internally tested with more than 25 wall décor media, including embossed, coated and uncoated, non-woven, vinyl, paper, and PVC-free wallpaper substrates.
The Designjet L26500 and L28500 printers allow customers to print proofs or very short runs directly on the production media, eliminating doubts about how the design will appear on the final product. Ideal for design studios or small PSPs, these high-quality HP latex printers are affordable and easy to use. For high-volume production of customized wall coverings, the HP Scitex LX600 and LX850 industrial printers offer media versatility, a wide color gamut, and vivid colors up to 1200 dpi. With unattended overnight printing at production speeds, an optional dual roll kit and prints that come off the printer dry and ready to use, customers can increase productivity and reduce running costs.
HP proofing and production printers with HP Latex Inks give customers a competitive advantage with recognized indoor air quality certifications. HP Latex Ink prints are GreenGuard Children & Schools Certified, meet AgBB criteria and the inks have achieved UL Sustainable Product Certification. These inks produce odorless prints ideal for residential, healthcare, and other sensitive environments as well as help improve the work environment with no requirements for hazard warning labels.
Cutting Solution Reduces Bottlenecks
Transforming the traditionally complicated process of cutting wallcoverings, Fotoba is helping PSPs and manufacturers streamline workflow with automatic, accurate panel cutting. The new XLD 170 WP automatic cutting device is designed specifically for wallcovering panels, delivering precise edge panel cutting on a range of media. The new solution offers horizontal cutting and vertical slitting of multiple panels simultaneously on pieces up to 5.57 feet wide. The XLD 170 WP also works with the automatic cut marks created by a wide variety of RIPs including AVA, Caldera, and ONYX.
