HP’s new ageWide XL printers, now with up to 70% faster output, enable technical production providers to grow AEC volume and expand business in colour applications. The new HP PageWide XL 5100 and HP PageWide XL 6000 printers and multi-function printers equip enterprise print rooms, central reprographic departments and reprographic houses for enhanced mid-volume production in both colour and monochrome. With speeds up to 24 D/A1-size prints per minute, the series delivers technical documents with quick turnarounds and low operating costs for architects and engineers – in addition to Geographic Information System (GIS) maps and point-of-sale (POS) poster applications.
