HP announced the new HP Designjet D5800 Production Printer, the fastest 60-inch dye-ink production printer in its class, available with improved reliability and robust media handling features. The new printer will integrate seamlessly into existing low cost print environments and allow copy shops and print service providers to continue using the inks they rely on for their existing HP Designjet 5500 printers.
Featuring speeds of up to 128 sqm/hr in fast mode and 24 sm/hr in production mode for polypropylene, the HP Designjet D5800 printer will enable around-the-clock printing of high-quality prints such as backlit graphics, point-of-sale displays, roll-up banners and indoor signage in vivid color. The HP Designjet D5800 Production Printer, which replaces the HP Designjet 5100 Printer, will be available in Asia this third quarter. The printer is easy to maintain in-house with a single print head that can be used for each color and replaced in a snap. It also offers automatic print head cleaning as well as access to convenient service and support should challenges arise.
“The new HP Designjet D5800 Production Printer will be an easy fit into environments where print service providers are looking for a robust solution to help them dramatically boost productivity while supporting a wide array of local media,” said Javier Larraz, director and general manager, Graphics Solutions Business — Large Format Printing Design, HP Asia Pacific and Japan. “The device presents a very compelling value proposition particularly to users operating in low-cost environments.”
