HP is expanding its portfolio of comprehensive workflow solutions that increase efficiency for large-format customers from media loading through production and finishing.
The Hostert Automatic Loader, a partner solution developed for the HP Scitex FB7600 and FB7500 Industrial Presses, allows high-volume print shops that produce long repeating runs to reduce production costs, improve turnaround time and create an automatic working environment with stack-to-stack operation. With this automatic media loader, PSPs can also improve production flexibility by distributing resources where they are most needed when running long jobs to reduce labour costs.
As of May, new HP Scitex FB7600 Industrial Presses will have the ability to load thin and flexible media down to 130 gsm using the press' three-quarter automated loading capability instead of manual mode. The patented vacuum system and six-zone vacuum table found on the press make this improvement possible. The new capability allows PSPs to further enhance media versatility, improve productivity and reduce turnaround times.
