HP resellers Graficomp and Midcomp will exhibit HP’s range of digital large format solutions at the Sign Africa Expo, taking place from 21-23 August at the Sandton Convention Centre. 

Both HP resellers will demonstrate how sign and display print service providers can produce high-value applications with improved productivity, quality and versatility using HP Latex Ink printers. The HP Latex 280 and 260 Printers (formerly the HP Designjet L265500 and L28500 printers) for POP/POS displays, soft signage, vehicle graphics and more will be shown on the Graficomp and Midcomp stands. 

The HP Latex 280 features new HP 792 Latex DesignJet inks, designed to produce rich, glossy blacks. Capable of printing on a wide range of media, up to 0.5mm thick, the printer produces 1200 dpi-output with exceptional speeds. It also includes: double-sided print capabilities, a new front tension system and edge holders to improve on image quality, an HP Optical Media Advance Sensor to automatically control registration, a Soft Media loading accessory and robust take up reels.

The HP Latex 260 printer is perfect for start up businesses or expanding print productivity for existing operations. With print speeds of up to 22,9sqm/hr (in billboard mode) and instantly dry and ready to use prints, the printer boosts productivity for double-sided print jobs, and allows immediate finishing or use. Now you can laminate immediately, install at the same time, and do reprints in real time. It offers a broad range of outdoor and indoor applications with a vast range of media to choose from. Attract eco-conscious customers and grow your business. The printer delivers 1200-dpi output with outdoor display permanence of up to three years unlaminated or five years laminated for high-quality, long-lasting prints. 

HP Latex Inks combine the best characteristics of solvent inks, UV-curable inks, and water-based inks. You can obtain outdoor durability and versatility across common media types used in sign and display applications, together with high quality, odourless prints, low maintenance, and the environmental advantages of water-based inks. Prints made with HP Latex Inks are completely cured inside the printer to form a durable image that’s ready for lamination, finishing, shipment, or display.

Midcomp will also be exhibiting the newly launched HP Latex 3000 Industrial Printer for high volume production environments. This industrial speed latex printer produces exceptional quality prints and offers profitable applications with  broader media versatility even on heat-sensitive substrates. From vehicle graphics and billboards to truck tarpaulins, the printer creates a competitive advantage for high-volume print service providers with a perfect balance between speed, quality and eco-friendly odourless prints, ideal for sensitive indoor display environments. HP Latex Inks create a safe and comfortable printing environment for print shop staff and are UL ECOLOGO and GREENGUARD Gold Certified (SM), while prints meet AgBB criteria and are A+ rated according to Emissions dans l’air interieur. 

Graficomp will display products from the HP Designjet Z graphics printer and the HP Designjet T technical printer.
