HP aims to simplify printing efficiencies for AEC Professionals with the new HP DesignJet Portfolio of printers and workflow. The new DesignJet printers are constructed from recycled plastic and feature 'Forest First' initiative to counter deforestation
The new range includes the HP DesignJet T850/950: HP’s easiest A3-A1 printing experience and the HP DesignJet XL 3800: HP’s fastest colour printer in its class, simple and cyber-secure
HP Inc has announced a new 36-inch (914mm) DesignJet portfolio that simplifies the printing needs of AEC (architecture, engineering & construction), professionals who work increasingly in a hybrid environment (office, home office or location) - demanding a high-quality printing experience, whenever and wherever they are.
With 54% of AEC firms deploying a hybrid work policy, flexible working models are here to stay. This recent approach has changed workflows, requiring aspects of the job, including large format printing, to be enabled in a hybrid environment. Because of this, users need intuitive print technology that meets their technical needs, whether that is printing A3-A1 CAD drawings or architectural boards, all without compromising on security.
says: “More than ever, AEC professionals need easy-to-use tools that help them be more productive and deliver high- quality work whether they are in the office, at home or somewhere remote. Craig Hardman, Country Sales Manager, Large Format Print, HP Australia
“With our new HP DesignJet lineup - alongside software such as HP Click and the HP app - users can print, monitor jobs and check device status from virtually anywhere, as well as collaborate on documents with colleagues.”
Sustainable and Secure
With the new 914mm DesignJet portfolio, HP aims to help customers to go beyond and run their businesses while achieving their sustainability goals. Thanks to HP’s 'Forest First' initiative, with every page a user prints with the HP DesignJet T850/T950 or XL 3800, HP collaborates with non-profit organisations, to ensure forests are restored.
The HP DesignJet T850/T950 are both made from at least 35% recycled plastic, use carboard-based ink cartridges, and can be scheduled to power on and off automatically to preserve energy consumption.
Additionally, the T858/T908 MFP and the HP DesignJet XL 3800 are comprised of at least 33% recycled content. HP has also prioritised cyber-security, with HP Wolf Security protection built into the HP DesignJet T850/T950 and XL 3800. This security application provides comprehensive endpoint protection and resiliency that starts at the hardware level and extends across cloud-based software and services – safeguarding an organisation’s PCs, printers and people from cyber predators.
With additional Enterprise-level Wolf security features, the HP DesignJet XL 3800 is also the HP’s most secure large format printer, based on third-party analysis of security features available on the market.
The new HP DesignJet lineup – consisting of three product families - provides several options and features to cater for all AEC user needs, including:
- HP DesignJet T850/T950: Save time by moving effortlessly from A3 to A1 prints, with the A3-to-Large Format integrated device featuring high-quality CAD and renders on any size and application. It simplifies remote collaboration with one-click scan and copy workflows from the front panel.
- HP DesignJet XL 3800: This device keeps projects moving with HP’s fastest colour printer in its class at 6x A1 colour pages/min, and first page out in 20 seconds. It offers excellent CAD lines and graphics applications in both mono and color and optimises space with 20% less space than predecessors.
The HP DesignJet T850/950 and the HP DesignJet XL 3800 are expected to be commercially available in all major markets starting October 17th and October 30th, respectively.
