The company has showcased the new HP Designjet L28500 at the Africa Print RoadShow in Nelspruit. This is the first time that the machine has been showcased in Africa.
The 2,64m wide L28500 offers improved durability compared with Eco-solvent technology. It features new HP 762 Latex Designjet inks, which produce rich blacks and glossy results on banners and self-adhesive vinyl, and offer double-sided printing capabilities with less user intervention and more accurate, automated registration.
Ideal for high-impact point-of-purchase displays, soft signage, bus shelters, vehicle graphics and more, the printer can print on a broad range of materials, including eco-solvent compatible media and low-cost uncoated options. The devices produce 1200dpi output with outdoor display permanence of up to three years unlaminated or five years laminated for high-quality, long-lasting prints. The output also dries inside the printer, boosting productivity for double-sided print jobs, and allowing immediate finishing or use.
The HP DesignJet Latex printer range also includes the DesignJet L26500, a 1.55m wide model. The L26500 offers the same outstanding features as the wider L28500.
Midcomp was the runner up in the Best Large Stand category at the RoadShow.
