The HP Scitex LX800 Printer is the largest printer in the HP Latex Printing Technology portfolio to date and is designed to meet the needs of the industrial large-format industry. The 126-inch printer features roll-to-free fall, roll-to-collector and dual-roll (up to two 60-inch rolls) capabilities, which are ideal for wide or super-wide applications such as event banners and outdoor signage.
This highly versatile machine offers users the ability to print on a wide range of outdoor and indoor substrates, including low-cost, uncoated media as well as banner, self-adhesive, fabric, paper, mesh and specialty options. Featuring an ink collector kit, the HP Scitex LX800 Printer can also print directly on unlined flags.
The six-color printing system produces a wide color gamut as well as durability and display permanence comparable to low-solvent ink technology, with laminated prints lasting up to five years outdoors, and up to 10 years indoors. The HP Scitex LX800 Printer also delivers high quality without sacrificing productivity, with 1,200 dpi resolution and production speeds up to 1,905 ft²/hr. HP Wide Scan Printing Technology delivers high productivity and image quality using proprietary HP Wide Scan Printheads and the HP Optical Media Advance Sensor.
Water-based HP Latex Inks provide many of the benefits of low-solvent ink technology without imposing the typical environmental, health and safety considerations. Odorless prints produced with HP Latex Inks emit extremely low levels of volatile organic compounds and no special ventilation is required, facilitating an improved printing environment. HP Latex Inks are also non-flammable and non-combustible, do not produce ozone emissions during printing and contain no hazardous air pollutants.
As the largest, most productive HP Latex Ink device to date, the HP Scitex LX800 Printer sets a new image-quality standard for the industrial large-format market. It features roll-to-free fall, roll-to-collector and dual-roll (up to two 60-inch rolls) capabilities. The HP Scitex LX800 Printer also produces high-quality output with 1,200 dpi resolution at production speeds up to 947 ft²/hr. for outdoor billboards and 484 ft²/hr. for indoor applications.
The HP Scitex LX600 Printer brings new efficiencies to industrial large-format workflows with no daily manual cleaning required and user-replaceable printheads with a snap-out/snap-in process that makes quick repairs easy and minimizes downtime. Productivity is also improved with prints that are completely dry upon leaving the printer, allowing print service providers to move right into the laminating or finishing process, and unattended printing with the ability to print two rolls side-by-side.
HP Latex Inks offer performance comparable to low-solvent ink technology with outdoor prints that achieve display permanence up to three years unlaminated and up to five years laminated and that are scratch, smudge and water resistant on a range of media. Additionally, water-based HP Latex Inks produce odorless prints that are ideal for indoor areas where odor is a concern—a clear advantage over prints produced with low-solvent inks.
HP Latex Inks also allow HP Scitex LX600 Printer customers to reduce costs with no need for special ventilation equipment or external dryers, and attract new business from environmentally conscious customers by offering a unique combination of inks that contain no hazardous air pollutants and a variety of recyclable media options.
