HP has unveiled additions to its Scitex portfolio, adding three new printers: the Scitex FB7600, the Scitex XP5500, and the Scitex XP2500.

            The HP Scitex FB7600 is an upgrade to the company’s FB7500 printer and offers in-line saturation control for backlit applications, hot folders, and job queue. The 6-color (CMYKcm) machine can print up to 5380 sq ft/hr at top speed (1937 sq ft/hr in Text mode), provides a resolution of 600 dpi, and can handle rigid and flexible media up to 65 x 126 in. (up to 25-mm thick). The machine uses HP’s new FB225 Scitex inks, which are designed to better adhere to plastics and possess improved flexibility on corrugated media; the pigmented UV-curable inks also are Greenguard Children & School certified. A Caldera GrandRIP+ or Onyx ProductionHouse RIP is standard; multi-sheet loading table (simultaneous printing of up to four sheets) is optional.

            The HP Scitex XP2500 (10.5-ft-wide) and XP5500 (16.6-ft) models are replacements for the Scitex XP2300 and XP5300, respectively. Both are 4-color UV printers that can print simultaneously on up to three rolls of media and can utilize HP Specialty Billboard Scitex Inks to achieve high ink coverage. Both have a top resolution of 360 dpi and come standard with Caldera GrandRIP+ or Onyx ProductionHouse RIPs. Top speed on the XP2500 is 2850 sq ft/hr; the XP5500 tops out at 3500 sq ft/hr. Options include a double-sided printing kit and HP Vertical Cutter kit (XP2500 only).
