HP Introduces Two New Aqueous Printers

HP just announced the release of the HP DesignJet Z9+ Pro 64-in Printer and the HP DesignJet Z6 Pro 64-in Printer. These new printers offer dual roll handling on media from 16-in to -64-in wide. Both printers are ultra-secure for printing government documents.

What’s Different?

The original DesignJet Z6 and Z9+ models are available in 24-in and 44-in widths, while the new Pro Series printers are 64-in. They also feature a spindle-less system and an optional dual roll system, and an automatic roll feed with smart roll-switching, saving you valuable time in the midst of a heavy workflow. The automatic horizontal cutter cuts all HP Z Series printer-qualified media, including most canvas. These new printers also offer universal printheads, which means only one printhead SKU, reducing the need to stock multiple printheads in multiple colors.

HP DesignJet Z9+ Pro 64-in Printer

Designed for PSPs, the nine-color DesignJet Z9+ Pro has the best color, thanks to HP Pixel control and dual drop weight technologies, and the widest color gamut for comparable printers, plus you can create your own profiles with the embedded i1 Spectrophotometer. HP PrintOS gives you exceptional fleet management and remote monitoring capabilities.
