Spandex Asia Pacific is partnering with HP to showcase the latest range of flatbed UV, latex and finishing technologies at the Visual Impact Image Expo in Sydney’s Olympic Park from September 12-14.

Spandex was appointed HP Latex wide format distributor in late 2012. The agreement was extended to include the HP Scitex printers from June this year. “The distribution deal with HP is proving very successful. We are building on this with the joint stand at Visual Impact. There will be working demonstrations of both HP printing and Spandex finishing equipment and the booth will be jointly staffed with our two companies’ personnel,” said Alex McClelland, managing director and vice president of Spandex.

Impact: HP Scitex FB500

Set to make an impact at the show is the HP Latex 260 and 260 printers, and a HP Scitex FB500. Spandex will also bring a Keencut cutting machine, a Summa cutting plotter and both hot and cold laminators. Spandex-supplied materials will be used for working demonstrations.

“More than ever, business is about close partnerships between suppliers and customers. We are delighted with the progress of the HP relationship in under a year and this translates to benefits for end user customers, who have two large international companies supplying the signage and display sectors at their disposal, with experts ready and willing to help Visual Impact visitors on any industry issues,” said McClelland.

Spandex’s extended agreement with HP also includes the wider (2500mm) HP Scitex FB700 printer and the Industrial Latex printers, HP Latex 600 and Latex 850. A new 3200m wide Latex printer, the HP Latex 3000 was showcased at Fespa.
