The HP PageWide XL 8000 was one of just 75 Gold Award winners selected by an expert panel of 58 international judges out of a record-high field of 5,300 submissions this year. The iF Gold award typically receives 5,000 submissions annually, making this year more difficult than ever.
2016 marks the second consecutive year that HP, Inc. has won a prestigious iF Award for their wide format printing technology. In 2015, the HP Designjet T3500 won an iF Award for outstanding product design for marrying industrial design with product functionality in the first year a wide format HP printer was entered in the iF Design Awards.
“The design language of the HP Page Wide XL8000 signals its function as a professional tool. Every element clearly visualizes its function, enabling the user to maximize efficiency. Unlike with similar products, key components like the toner cartridges are not hidden away, but designed as a key visual element, thus enabling the user quick access to this often-replaced component.” – The iF Jury

Introducing the just-announced KIP 800 color series – a new generation of wide format functionality. The KIP Color 800 series is designed to conquer a range of wide format tasks that require speed, quality and performance. The series includes the KIP 850, 860, 870, 880 and 890.

What’s new about the KIP 860?

The KIP 860 will print the entire set with mixed color for immediate distribution. Prints and copies generated by the KIP 800 Color Series are fully lightfast – they will not fade or exhibit color deterioration from exposure to light over extended periods. The images produced by the CMYK dry toner system are 100% waterproof and are suitable for outdoor applications even in inclement weather.

To buy inkjet, color toner, latex, or solvent; now that is the question – at least for many print shops. With updated media options and applications, plus the flexibility of digital output, customers are wanting to print more than just wide format banners. Today’s savvy consumers are requesting canvas, fine art wall covering, point of purchase displays and vehicle wraps. The challenge for print shops is choosing and investing in the right technology to meet demand.
Slow printing and high quality vs. faster print speeds and monochrome is no longer a choice that has to be made by print providers. Traditionally, inkjet hardware has been the least expensive, but the consumables’ costs made them considerably more expensive to operate, not to mention the much slower printing speeds. HP has bridged the time/cost gap by introducing the HP PageWide XL series. This series reduces production time by delivering mixed monochrome and color sets in 50% of the time with a consolidated workflow. The print speeds of up to 30 D/A1 pages per minute are the fastest print speeds in the market. The long-life printheads, coupled with high ink efficiency, further drive down the cost of operation of the PageWide XL series.
KIP is also introducing new models to broaden the choices for print providers. They are adding color toner units for print shops and the office environment that print on a range of media options that are durable, even in the elements. These systems produce vibrant colors, striking graphics and photographic images at unprecedented speeds for this price point.
As the industry changes to color printing where the cost of color is coming down and print speeds are increasing, there are a host of possibilities and applications available for print shops and offices. Let Repro Products help you navigate the new color printing technologies so you can choose the best hardware to meet your customers’ demands. We have been providing wide format expertise since 1979 and have unsurpassed experience and breadth of products representing solutions from HP and KIP.
