The Scitex 11000, revealed at April’s ISA Sign Expo.
At the ISA Sign Expo in April, HP (www.hp.com) unveiled the HP Scitex 11000 Industrial Press, the successor to the discontinued HP Scitex FB10000 line. HP quotes a max. print speed of 6996 sq ft/hr (the equivalent of 127 full-sized sheets) for the 11000, which features the company’s new Smart Coat Technology, applying a thin protective clear layer that HP says may eliminate the need for an additional overcoat or laminate in some applications. The 6-color printer (CMYKLcLm) can print rigid or flexible sheets up to 63 x 126 in. and up to 1 in. thick. It contains 312 printheads using the company’s High Dynamic Range technology, employing three dots sizes (15, 30, and 45 pL). The printer uses HP’s HDR250 Scitex inks, quoted for up to 2 years of outdoor weather resistance, supplied in 10-L cartridges. HP offers a choice of manual, semiautomatic, and ¾-automatic configurations; systems for fully automatic loading are available through HP partners. Up to four sheets can be printed simultaneously with an optional multi-sheet loader kit.
