Fans of HP’s Designjet series can see three popular models – the Z3200, Z6100 and the L65500 – on display at PRINT 09 early this week.

The Designjet Z3200 features a 12-ink system with the new HP 73 Chromatic Red for an expanded color gamut that reaches up to 95% PANTONE color coverage.  Print on over 50 different kinds of HP media with print speeds of 2 mins. a page in draft mode, 3.8 mins. a page in normal mode, and 12.4 mins. a page in best quality mode.

The Z3200 is a thermal inkjet using HP Vivera pigment based inks; HP prevents nozzle clogging with the Optical Drop Detector.  It comes in two widths, the 24-inch model and the 44-inch model.

The Designjet Z6100 offers an 8-ink system with three different styles of black for excellent black and white print quality.  The Z6100 uses the high capacity 775 ml HP 91 ink cartridges featuring Vivera pigment based inks.

The Z6100 has a 40 GB hard drive for storing job and saving profiles; the Z6100ps allows users to create ICC profiles in CMYK format, thanks to the Adobe PostScript Driver.  There are two models in the Z6100 series: the 42-inch printer or the 60-inch printer.  Both models can be upgraded with an optional 42-inch scanner. additional memory, and additional spindles.

The Designjet L65500 features a six-color printing system for large format outdoor and indoor prints and signage.  It offers a print resolution up to 1200 dpi and a low-solvent ink that allows HP Latex prints to brillant for up to three years unlaminated.  Add a laminate and get up to five years of unfaded colors outdoors.

The L65500 offers print speeds up to 79 meters an hour when printing for outdoors and 34 meters an hour when printing indoor-quality prints.

All three models are available now through HP, get more information on HP.com.
