The Fastest Possible Large format A1 and A0 wide format plotter in Singapore.
Print Color and Black and White Faster than ever!
When it comes to plan drawings, especially those used in construction and engineering. Many customers are still using a traditional large format laser printer to get the job done.
This is primarily because it has been the best option for those customers who need fast print outs and are concerned about costs.
The truth is, another alternative does exist, and this comes from the revolutionary Pagewide series of large format machines. It promises to be a game-changing technology capable of replacing multiple units of machines into a consolidated device powerful enough to meet the needs and demands of its users.
The best part, its faster and cheaper to print in both color and black and white than all existing current technology.
In this article, i would like to highlight the very basics of this technology and then expand upon it with machines in this series.
The major problem that faces many companies today is productivity, productivity and the lack thereof has a ripple effect within any organization.
One of the things all offices do on a regular basis in print, be it drawings or documents. The printing process can be either a seamless workflow or it can be extremely cumbersome, it is the difference between long hours or going back on time.
I know it may sound silly, to think that a printer can have such implications, however, do take a look at this video to understand a little more about why a seamless workflow is important especially in peak periods.
Although the video is highlight issues within a print service providers environment, similar situations occur in large format printing in offices all over Singapore.
So how and what is Pagewide Technology, simply put as the name implies pagewide is a technology that caters for printing over the entire “page-width” hence the name page wide.
The general understanding of inkjet printers is that it is a single printhead that moves back and forth at the same time with the paper moving forward.
This technology means that instead of moving the printheads, the entire width of the printable area is covered by a printhead and now the paper travels beneath it. So the only thing that moves is the paper moving forward! Take a look at this video to understand this technology.
The resulting effect of this is that now you have large format printers, printing in seconds vs what would take a traditional inkjet printer much longer to complete. Now i know some of you who are used to “laser printing” will have reservations and i encounter this very often, my customers often ask me “marco won’t prints printed with inkjet smudge or smear when it comes in contact with water?”
This is probably something you also consider when purchasing a printer, to this i say all prints that are printed with HP Pagewide technology are water resistant and will not smear or smudge when it comes into contact with water..more about that in another article.
So now that you know a little bit about the technology this is the result of the pure speeds the machines can achieve,
- 6 A1/min , 10 A1/min, 15 A1/Min, 20 A1/min and the fastest 30 A1/min
- Now imagine a full color A1 drawing being completed in just 3 seconds and costs almost identically to a monochrome print.
The value of the proposition is exceedingly high, because what you have achieved if you choose to invest in this system is reduced costs per copy for color prints, top notch productivity, drawings which now can work as tools and fewer devices for your IT team to manage.
Lets face it, we live in a world full of color. Displays keeps getting better and better each day. Softwares such as BIM and other tools which are now being deployed in the reprographics market aim to give architects, engineers, consultants and more the right tool for doing the right job. The future of printing and print technologies will move away from laser machines and now be enabled in devices such as these.
We will elaborate more in the coming blog posts, however if what we have said to you appeals to you and you would like to know more, feel free to contact me or to learn more.
