New 50ppm HP digital presses for 9 Dollars
HP is offloading, via auction, some printing kit according to auctioneers Grays Online who have been instructed by HP to sell this new equipment with a starting bid of $9.00.
GraysOnline (www.graysonline.com.au) will auction 40 discontinued high-end HP A3+ machines starting on 8th October.
All printers are brand new in cartons but are being sold to clear without warranty and to make way for HP’s new range.
Thirty-eight of the presses are full-colour HP 9850mfps introduced in 2004 (and also marketed as the BERTL award-winning Konica Minolta C500, using the same Simitri® Polymerised toner.) The 9850mfp at 50 A4 colour pages per minute fits the ‘production digital lite’ sector of the digital press market and is a perfect fit in any printshop, print-for-pay quick printer, inplant, advertising agency, design studio or even proofing department since several are bundled with EFI’s Fiery S300 controller and a suite of EFI graphic arts tools including spectrophotometer and ICC profiling software.
Others are bundled with EFI’s X3e embedded print controller for less mission-critical colour. A total of $4.3 million of stock will be auctioned unreserved.
With maximum sheet size of 330mm x 483mm, the 9850mfp is a true A3+ machine. Some of the bundles include 3,000 sheet finishers that staple, tri-fold, saddle-stitch, make booklets, punch holes and insert sheets.
Monthly duty cycle is a healthy 150,000 pages. There is no click charge – just buy consumables, toner etc as you need to.
This GraysOnline auction is a once-only opportunity to snap up a 50ppm, EFI colour-controlled digital ‘production lite’ machine at low auction prices. The top configurations with EFI Fiery S300s had ORPs (Original selling price) of around $124,000.00 – and all bidding starts at $9!
In addition to the 38 x HP 9850mfps, GraysOnline is also clearing a range of accessories, RAM upgrades, hard disks, toners etc also at $9 starting prices.
To cap off the ‘digital press auction of the year’ there are two B&W production machines, an 85ppm HP 9085mfp and a 55ppm HP 9055mfp – also starting at $9 each.
Register with GraysOnline to bid and snap up a real HP digital colour bargain!
The sale preview will be online shortly and bidding commences October 8th, ending on October 11th.
