Making Technology Work Now—and Tomorrow

In Booth 1241, HP is showcasing its broad portfolio of solutions for the graphic arts industry, demonstrating how it makes technology work for print providers for the jobs they do today and the ones they want to do tomorrow.

Notably, the HP booth will feature the flagship HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press. With its ability to print large volumes of high-value pages and a wide variety of applications, the HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press is an easy fit for offset print service providers (PSPs). Now available and installed at customer sites worldwide, the B2-format press maintains the capabilities distinct to the HP Indigo portfolio, allowing PSPs to produce traditionally offset applications with digital technology in a wider format. In addition, a digital press application display will show printed labels and packaging print samples produced on the HP Indigo 20000 and 30000 Digital Presses.

For the first time in the U.S., HP will live-print plastic cards on PVC stocks to demonstrate the capabilities of the HP Indigo 5600 Digital Press, ideal for PSPs with medium volumes and a diverse job mix. Also on display from HP’s Indigo portfolio are the HP Indigo 7600 Digital Press and the HP Indigo WS6600 Digital Press.

For large-format print providers, HP will showcase the HP Latex 3000 Printer for the first time in the U.S., demonstrating its enhanced productivity, quality, and versatile features that help high-volume shops establish a competitive advantage. The HP Latex 3000 Printer allows a broader range of sign and display customers to shift pages from traditional solvent and UV-curable technologies to HP Latex Printing Technologies at industrial speeds. HP’s booth will also feature the HP Latex 280 and 260 Printers (formerly the HP Designjet L28500 and L26500 Printers, respectively).

Introduced on September 4, the new HP Designjet Z5400 Postscript ePrinter is making its public debut at PRINT 13. The 44-inch large-format printer is designed for quick printers and copy shops with two-roll front media loading and automatic switching capabilities to handle urgent, on-demand requests. The device will enable copy shops to expand in-house print offerings and become a one-stop-shop for a variety of print jobs such as posters, photos, canvases, backlight prints, indoor signs, point-of-sale posters, line drawings, and maps.

Rounding out HP’s large-format portfolio on display are the HP Scitex FB700 Industrial Printer and the HP Designjet Z6200 Printer.

HP is also showing virtual demonstrations of the HP Color Inkjet Web Presses. The application showcase highlights the capabilities of HP’s web press product line and features a variety of print samples for segmented marketing communication, digitally printed books, and marketing collateral. The SPS Web Print Module Application Showcase is an interactive display with two side-by-side print modules and supplies that emphasizes high-volume web printing.

A range of live presentations on HP’s SmartStream solutions portfolio will be ongoing in HP’s booth, educating attendees on how the software addresses the challenges of producing and delivering high volumes of short-run jobs. Also demonstrated in the booth is HP Print Care, a comprehensive toolset available for HP Indigo and Scitex devices that provides fast, accurate, and easy-to-use diagnostics and troubleshooting to improve productivity.

In addition to HP’s cross-portfolio solutions, a number of HP partners are represented in HP’s booth, spanning workflow and finishing partner solutions that include Mindfire, Taopix, XMPie, Avanti, C.P. Bourg Bookletmaker, Mohr Cutters 80, among others.

HP Financial Services, the company’s leasing and life cycle asset-management services division, is on-site providing total solution financing. With HP Financial Services lending solutions, PSPs can arrange customized payment options and flexible terms aligned to their business growth strategies.
