Trade-show season is typically filled with new product launches, and 2018 did not disappoint. HP and Canon both debuted new printers at FESPA and SGIA.
HP Makes a Splash at FESPA 2018
HP announced of the new suite of DesignJet Z-series printers, designed to increase production, reduced print costs with improved color gamut, and the first ever DesignJet printer with a vertical trimmer.
The 60-inch wide HP DesignJet Z6610 Production Printer (6-color) and DesignJet Z6810 Production Printer (8-color) are built to handle high-speed printing (up to 548 sq. ft. on plain paper) and long, unattended workloads because of long-roll handling, 775-ml ink capacity, and a built-in take-up reel.
The HP DesignJet Z6 PostScript Printer (6-color) and DesignJet Z9+ PostScript Printer (9-color with Gloss Optimizer option) offer SecureBoot and an encrypted hard disk to preserve confidentiality. The Z6dr and Z9+dr offer the additional benefits of dual roll handling and the vertical trimmer, reducing the need to switch media rolls between jobs and manual trimming in post-production.
Canon Takes Strides to Improve CAD Printers
At the 2018 SGIA show, Canon introduced the imagePROGRAF TM Series of CAD printers. The new line of printers improves upon the previous generation of IPF CAD printers by increasing speeds by as much as 23% and reducing ink consumption by as much as 21%.
