HP introduces four new web presses

HP has added four new 762mm presses to its T-series of PageWide web presses. Essentially, this is to upgrade the range with the new High Definition Nozzle Architecture printheads. The HDNA printheads have 2400 nozzles per inch native resolution and dual drop weight, essentially a limited form of greyscaling, that should lead to higher quality at speed.

Thus the four new presses – the T370 HD, T380 HD, T390 HD and the monochrome T390M HD – offer higher speeds and print quality, printing 152 mpm in Quality mode with high print quality for customized publishing applications, such as colour trade books, journals, retail catalogues, brochures and marketing collateral at any run length. These presses can produce a maximum duty cycle of 93m images per month in quality mode, though this varies in the lower quality Performance mode from 157m images per month for the T390HD down to 108 million images per month for the T370 HD. Maximum productivity ranges from 305 mpm for the T390 HD down to 183 mpm for the T370 HD.

These printers use HP’s Link technology, which can embed Internet-connected codes and invisible watermarks in printed collateral, such as customized text books, magazines or instruction manuals.

HP says that its customers are collectively now printing more than five billion pages per month, up from four billion pages per month in 2015. One T360M customer recently produced 7.3 million pages in a day and more than 32 million pages in a week, breaking the record for the number of daily and weekly pages printed on any HP PageWide Web Press T300 series device worldwide.

The 107cm wide T400 and 559mm wide T200 series have already been upgraded to the HDNA heads.

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
