The HP 2.6 m (104-inch) Dual Roll Kit for the HP Designjet L65500 Printer allows customers to significantly increase productivity with the ability to produce single jobs faster with two side-by-side rolls or two different jobs at the same time. Beta customers have reported that they can reach the same level of productivity with two 1.2 m (48-inch) prints with the Dual Roll Kit as with one 2.6 m (104-inch) print. This accessory accommodates rolls of varying widths and lengths. Its stable, reliable design equalizes tension, enabling unattended operation similar to single-roll printing.
"Our productivity has improved with the HP Dual Roll Kit as most of our jobs use banner media narrower than 1.2 m, so we can print on two rolls simultaneously," said Margarita Campos, operations manager at Look Print, a digital large-format print shop based in Sydney, Australia, and Dual Roll Kit beta customer.
Since its launch in May 2008, the HP Latex portfolio has seen strong market acceptance with worldwide customer installations, plus more than 50 vendors and 300 media solutions tested and profiled through the HP Latex Solutions Media Program. Orders for the HP Designjet L25500 Printer have already exceeded expectations by 45 percent, and HP Designjet L65500 printers have produced more than 3 million m2 (32 million sqft) with pages growing at 52 percent quarter over quarter.
