HP expands Latex R printer possibilities

March 26, 2020

HP Inc. have announced an updated portfolio of HP Latex R Series printers with new features and solutions to make it easier for print service providers (PSPs) to benefit from HP Latex printing on a hybrid printing platform, including achieving high image quality on a range of rigid and flexible materials using HP’s water-based Latex Inks.

The HP Latex R Series brings vibrant colors into the rigid printing world along with HP’s innovative White Latex Ink, a glossy, high-quality “true white” that doesn’t yellow over time like traditional UV-based white ink.

The new portfolio introduces the new entry-level HP Latex R1000 model, offered at an attractive entry price point.

Additionally, HP is introducing improvements across the portfolio. The new R Series printers now enable customers to benefit from higher productivity and efficiency.

Software productivity advancements include expanded queue management capability and automated updates. More efficient multi-sheet media loading and handling will help significantly boost output. These upgrades will be available to existing R Series printer customers.

The new R series will also boost the capability of PSPs to grow applications such as custom short-run packaging, POP corrugated displays, and printed thermoforming, benefitting from fine details and saturated color image quality on cardboard stock and amazing HP Latex ink elongation capabilities when producing thermoformed printer parts.

With the new HP Latex R Printer series 2020 edition, large format print service providers will benefit from new levels of performance. They will also be able to expand to fast-growing applications, such as short-run special packaging and printed thermoforming for which HP Latex inks technology delivers top-quality performance."
