The HP Latex 3000, a 3.2m high volume wide format digital printer with dual roll capability and impressive throughput speeds, now takes pride of place in the Perfect Colours’printer portfolio,following the London-based reseller’s latest agreement with HP.

Originally launched at FESPA 2013, the Latex 3000 features a six-colour ink-set, embedded spectrophotometer and latex optimizer, which combine with a 12pl droplet size to produce fine-quality graphics that are ideal for applications that have to withstand the closest scrutiny, including those in the increasingly popular décor sector.

When printing at the highest level of quality, users can achieve print speeds of 77sq m/hour, while banner and other exterior work can be printed at speeds of 120sq m/hour. The Latex 3000 can, in fact,reach a maximum speed of 180sq m/hour but, notably, can process two 1.6m rolls at once, thus providing extra efficiency and profitability, regardless of media width.

Lamination can be applied immediately after printing, although many users skip this step thanks to its excellent scratch resistance, which s comparable to the effect achieved when using a hard solvent ink on PVC banner or self-adhesive vinyl. However, the machinealso performs well on heat-sensitive materials and textiles, when it can be used with an optional ink collector, to facilitate the use of unlined mesh, scrim, voile or flag.

Commenting on the addition of the Latex 300 to the Perfect Colours’printer line-up, John Telling, the company’s Sales Director said: “We are delighted to be able to offer this machine to our expanding base of HP Latex users, especially those companies who are seeking a high-productivity alternative in roll-to-roll printing and we are confident that we can now provide one of the most comprehensive ranges of machine options in the country!”
