  • Celmac to host HP Latex R rigid Open Week

    The new HP Latex R Series printer for rigid or flexible media will be on show all next week at the Celmac headquarters in Brunswick, Victoria.

    The R series is the first Latex printer to print on rigid media, and it also prints flexibles. Rigid substrates include foamboards, PVC cardboard, fluted polypropylene, solid plastics, aluminum, wood, and glass.  

    According to Celmac the new HP Latex R Series enables vibrant colour printing on rigid substrates, and marks the introduction of HP Latex White Ink. Like its other water-based Latex inks, HP says the Latex R’s  white ink will maintain the appearance and texture of the substrate when printing on materials like aluminum, acrylics or woods.

    HP also claims that its new white ink will not yellow over time, which can be a problem with some white UV inks. The company has also addressed other white ink issues by including a fluid management technology.

    HP has added an ink recirculation system to keep ink moving both within the ink delivery system and at the printhead. The ink storage system has an automatic ink agitator to prevent settling over time.

    The new printer comes with proactive alerts and preventative services in order to maximise uptime.

    It will be on show all week at the Celmac technology Centre, 6 Syme Street, Brunswick, all print businesses are invited to the event, contact Celmac to arrange a time.

    The HP Latex R2000.

    Celmac has installed a new HP Latex R2000 printer in its newly refurbished Technology Centre in Melbourne.

    The HP Latex R2000, launched earlier this year at FESPA in Berlin, is HP’s first hybrid printer for rigid and flexible sign and display printing in one device. It’s designed for a range of applications, can accommodate materials up to 2.5-metres wide and up to 5-cm thick, and features HP Latex Rigid Printing Technology and HP Latex White Ink

    Celmac is inviting wide format printers to visit its centre in Brunswick to see how the new R2000 can increase productivity on rigid substrates, with vibrant colours and the glossiest white ink opening up fresh creative concepts for sign and display.

    The newly refurbished Celmac Technology Centre has been designed to demonstrate the latest hardware as well as workflow solutions from colour management through to print and finishing options, says Celmac sales director, Rob Skene.

    It’s also a training centre for Fogra standard colour with Barbieri tools and RIP’s to enable high level colour management. An Aristo cutting table and vinyl cutters are also part of a comprehensive program to show printers how new technologies can benefit their operations.

    Celmac will also provide the option of private viewing. To arrange a suitable time, email technologycentre@celmac.com.au
