The new HP PageWide Web Press T235 HD, part of its T200 HD Color series, is an entry-level, continuous-feed inkjet web press offering “the most economical entry point to high quality performance for digital commercial printing,” said the OEM. The T235 HD is a low total-cost-of-ownership platform for publishing, production mail and commercial print. It can be upgraded to the HP PageWide Web Press T240 HD for increased productivity. “With the introduction of the HP PageWide T235 HD, it’s easier for more print service providers to make the analogue-to-digital transformation,” said Eric Wiesner, General Manager, HP PageWide Industrial Division. “As the HP PageWide Web Press platform reaches a milestone of 210 billion customer-printed pages, it further reinforces the market’s adoption of HP Thermal Inkjet technology.”

Using HP’s High Definition Nozzle Architecture (HDNA) with a native resolution of 2,400 nozzles per inch, the duplex HP PageWide Web Press T235 HD delivers productivity at 400 fpm (122 mpm) in Performance mode, using single drop weight printing. It’s also capable of producing 200 fpm (61 mpm) in Quality mode, using dual drop weight printing with seven levels of half-toning per colour, and finer grain printing for smoother skin tones, gradients and secondary colour solid fills.

“HP’s high-volume PageWide solutions allow print service providers to add greater value to high-volume, data-driven print communications with uncompromising performance and colour quality that brands demand,” Wiesner added. “The press makes it possible to deliver cost-efficient, relevant and targeted print that engages customers in more creative ways.”

The new press previewed yesterday at the Hunkeler Innovation Days Tradeshow in Lucerne, Switzerland.
