In the closing segment to our four-part series, Timothy Mitchell finishes his overview of the technology improvements made in the HP Latex 700 and 800 printers. He dug into the new printheads, the new inks, and white ink in the W versions in the previous editions.
In the video above, Mitchell delves into the quality at 4- and 6-pass, the importance of the homogenous print zone, and other improvements like the rotary cutter and upgraded take-up reel system.
Speed and Consistency
With the reconfigured printheads, reduced picolitre size, and modular ink, this family of HP printers can produce stunning images at 4-pass. “This is 4-pass, which is about 334 sq ft/hr. The color pop, speed, everything looks gorgeous on this canvas,” says Mitchell. “I can do it on banner or canvas all day long at 250-334 sq ft/hr., and the colors look fantastic. This is absolutely a testament to how good the technology is.”
Homogenous Print Zone
The significance of the homogenous print zone is a stable print temperature for consistent and accurate color, no matter the external temperature. Whether you’re printing during January in New England or August in Florida, the homogenous print zone will help you achieve consistent graphics from print to print. “It uses just a little bit of temperature in the print zone so that whenever you’re printing, everything that goes through that print zone is exactly the same temperature, which is very important for color consistency,” says Mitchell.
