HP PageWide XL: Changing Wide Format Printing
Earlies this year HP introduced the PageWide technology with the XL large format printers as a way of helping businesses and professionals to print what they need quickly and efficiently, while still maintaining the high standards that HP prides itself on.
What is PageWide Technology?
PageWide Technology can be understood as the upgrade to the traditional print head used in color laser printers. It involves staggering the HP Thermal Inkjet chips in order to both save space, and makes it possible for there to be both scalability and versatility when choosing how you want your prints to be.
Along with this fantastic new print head comes a new age of printers as well to help keep up with this great technology. These are large format printers, also defined by HP as their PageWide XL printer series. These printers are perfect for the business world, and can handle massive printing jobs with ease.
The Features of PageWide Technology
There is a lot to look at and explore within this new technology. Some of the main features that PageWide technology offers to consumers include reliable drop ejection, high sustained drop rates, stackability, improved dot placement accuracy, and a compact print zone.
The PageWide print head also has various specifications that attribute to its success. Here is a list of some of them:
- HP Thermal Inkjet Technology
- 25,344 nozzles per printhead
- 1,200 nozzles per inch native resolution
- 6,336 nozzles per color
- Built-in ink filtration and pressure regulation
- User replaceable without tools or mechanical adjustments
All of these features work to improve the accuracy, and quality of the work that is produced. They work to reduce printing errors and defects to give you the best quality prints every time.
PageWide XL Printers
There are many new printers that support this amazing advancement in technology. These printers are included in the new HP Page Wide XL printers, and they offer various features of their own that can further contribute to the speed, accuracy, and cost-effectiveness of your prints. Some of the features that these printers bring to the table include a production stacker and online folder; fade and moisture resistant inks to ensure top-notch prints every time; and the capability to hold up to 6 rolls and dual HP ink supplies with the built-in auto-switch.
These printers will be able to produce up to 30 D/A1 pages per minute with an amazing 50% cost savings per page, even when printing in color. This, of course, varies from one printer to the next as there are 3 main options available in this new line of large format printers. These options are:
- HP PageWide XL 8000
- HP PageWide XL 5000
- HP PageWide XL 4000
Each of these printers in the series offers you different options within their own categories. For example, within the HP PageWide XL 5000 series, there is the option for the standard 5000 version or the option of using their 5000 MFP version. One offers you the capability of scanning and copying as well as traditional printing, while the other follows the suit of a more standard printer. This makes it easier for you to select exactly the right model for you that will fit your business’ needs.
This series of HP PageWide XL printers also enables you to connect your printer to your enterprise network, and have access to workflow solutions. Last but not least, HP has made a valiant effort to reduce the acquisition and energy costs that are needed in order to use these printers by going through the qualification process for the Energy Star logo. These new printers can now be seen under those devices which have gained the Energy Star qualification.
With so much to explore, see, and experience with the new HP PageWide Technology and HP PageWide XL Series printers, business owners can rejoice knowing that they will be able to enjoy high quality prints, a fast printout speed, and a wonderful cost-effective system for many years to come.
