HP's new solutions for large-format print providers

HP Scitex printerHP recently announced upgrades, certifications and workflow solutions for its large-format sign and display portfolio, to help print service providers (PSPs) grow their businesses and explore new markets.

In recent years, many large-format print shops have transformed their business models, which offer new high-value applications and seek to avoid commoditisation. This transformation has been driven by technology advances that help PSPs move beyond sign and display to a diverse range of applications. No matter the market, clients increasingly demand high-quality output with faster turnaround times, which require PSPs to embrace the flexibility and versatility of digital to remain successful.

"Large-format PSPs are working in a changing marketplace, challenging them to step outside of their application comfort zone to meet client demand," said Xavier Garcia, vice president and general manager, Large-Format Sign and Display Division, HP.

"HP is introducing a variety of new offerings at SGIA to help our customers meet production demands, while also empowering them to confidently move into high-value markets, such as retail, interior décor and fleet graphics."

New varnish ink for HP Scitex Enhanced Color Pack
HP FB225 Scitex Varnish Ink is the latest ink option introduced for the HP Scitex FB7500/7600 Enhanced Color Pack.
The new ink allows HP Scitex FB7500/FB7600 Industrial Press users to add spot or full varnish, create embossed text and images, as well as expand the colour gamut. The integrated varnish ink helps protect against rubbing, scratches and water damage while creating cost and workflow efficiencies.

Enhancements, certifications for higher-value Latex applications
Helping PSPs capture share of the growing custom wall décor market, the HP WallArt Solution includes a feature to create canvas projects. This easy-to-use, cloud-based web service provides print-ready files and step-by-step installation instructions. This allows PSPs to design themselves or work with customers through the cloud to produce customised interior décor applications, such as mounted canvas prints and wallcoverings.

Workflow
Increasing production efficiencies, the HP SmartStream Production Analyzer 2.0 for HP Scitex Industrial Presses includes improvements to the job dashboard and job summary report, as well as the ability to set productivity targets. With a more detailed dashboard interface, operators can record notes, giving production managers a complete picture of job production. The job report summary groups all related projects together to be viewed and exported to management information systems software for further analysis.

Compatible with HP Latex and Scitex printers and presses, the HP Scitex Caldera GrandRIP+ Software solution now includes EasyMedia Module, Caldera's integrated International Color Consortium (ICC) profile builder based on Xrite i1Prism V2 technology. Caldera EasyMEDIA allows users to create ICC profiles, creating a smoother workflow with enhanced colour consistency across output.

Mimaki JV5-320DS - the new direct & dye sub production printer

Mimaki’s new grand format direct to polyester printer – the JV5-320DS.

Mimaki recently announced the launch of its new large format direct and dye-sublimation printer - the 3.2m wide JV5-320DS. The new machine enables direct printing on polyester substrates at high speeds and with excellent results. The highly acclaimed productivity and quality features of JV5 have been merged in this model to produce outstanding print on textiles on a super wide scale. The JV5-320DS will be available early in the New Year commanding a slight premium over the current solvent version due to the additional features of the new machine.

The JV5-320DS is based on Mimaki's award-winning JV5-320S solvent super wide printer and is designed for high productivity and accurate print quality requirements in the outdoor signage market. As this market is experiencing growing demand for outside signage on polyester textiles, for instance, for flags, banners and soft signage that are better catered for with water based dye-sublimation inks, Mimaki has designed the JV5-320DS.

The majority of the benefits from the current JV5-320S are incorporated into the JV5-320DS in such a way that the highest productivity and excellent image quality are achieved on this direct and dye-sublimation printer. During printing on polyester substrates, inks can easily pass through the fabric underneath. Therefore, the JV5-320DS is equipped with an ink catching trough to prevent the ink that penetrates the fabric staining the back side. In addition, a new drying fan will dry inks directly after printing in order to prevent media sticking during the winding process. The JV5-320DS also features Mimaki's new Spray Suppressor System that improves printing consistency even further.

John de la Roche; National Sales Manager for Mimaki's UK & Ireland distributor, Hybrid Services Ltd welcomes the introduction of the JV5-320DS; "We're answering market demands for production printing of grand format soft signage with this machine."

"The desire to print directly to polyester seems to be on everyone's lips at the moment and with the new JV5-320DS, it's a commercial reality."

The JV5-320DS achieves a maximum resolution of 1,440 dpi and is equipped with Mimaki's AMF (Automatic Media Feeder) for stable feeding of heavy media up to 130kg. Print speeds vary according to resolution between 60.3 sq m/h (540 x 720 dpi) for long distance viewing to close up viewing of 44 sq m/h (at 540 x 1,080 dpi). Mimaki's proven Sb52 dye-sublimation ink with their superior colouration characteristics are used - delivering vibrant colour and deep hues. The printer also features the optional, MBIS (Mimaki Bulk Ink Supply System) that provides an ink load of two litre containers and thus caters for long uninterrupted print runs while at the same time saving money on ink.

Further details of the new machine can be had by contacting Mimaki's exclusive UK & Ireland distributor, Hybrid Services Ltd by either calling 01270 501900 or by visiting their website at www.hybridservices.co.uk.
