HP has launched a new T235 HD PageWide Web Press, filling out its entry-level T200 series. It’s designed as a low cost option that can be upgraded to the more expensive T240 HD, which offers better productivity.
It’s a continuous feed duplex press capable of producing 122mpm in Performance mode. It uses HP’s High Definition Nozzle Architecture (HDNA), giving it 2400 nozzles per inch and a dual drop ability – essentially a form of greyscaling. Thus in Quality mode, with dual drop weight droplets, it can print 61mpm. HP says that this gives seven levels of half-toning per color, and finer grain printing for smoother skin tones, gradients and secondary color solid fills.
Eric Wiesner, general manager, HP PageWide Industrial Division, commented: “With the introduction of the HP PageWide T235 HD, it’s easier for more PSPs to make the analog to digital transformation.”
