HP used drupa 2016 to announce two new DesignJet Z-series - a 44 and 24 inch multi-roll printers.1
The HP DesignJet Z5600 and Z2600 PostScript Printers come with a six-ink printing system, which helps users cut costs by reducing ink consumption up to 20 percent,2 while still ensuring crisp colours. These devices, designed for copy shops, retailers and corporations, specifically GIS departments, newly offer HP chromatic red ink which enhances the colour gamut, ideal for high-impact point of purchase (POP) signs and posters.
“Our customers want colours that are vibrant, not muted; however they also need solutions that increase the colour gamut without excess inks,” said Xavier Garcia, general manager, Large-Format Sign and Display Division, HP Inc. "With today’s new printers, the HP DesignJet portfolio covers all graphic needs, from high-impact graphics to photo quality applications, enabling users to differentiate from the competition.”
The HP DesignJet Z5600 and Z2600 PostScript Printers produce diverse applications efficiently and with the highest quality standards, from eye-catching signs and posters to durable maps and technical drawings. For greater line accuracy and colour reliability, HP Professional PANTONE® colour emulation is included with Adobe® PostScript®/PDF, HP-GL/2. And smooth colour tones are achieved thanks to HP Multi-Dimensional Smart Drop Placement Technology, which provides increased levels of colour accuracy and reliable operation of the printer.
“The HP DesignJet Z5600 opens exciting possibilities for our clients with the vibrant red that differentiates our graphics and technical drawings from competitors,” said Wilson Rodriquez, Speedi Pack. "In addition, with its impressive, straightforward operation and dual-roll, we spend more time serving customers than operating the printer.”
Quick and efficient high-impact graphics printing
The 44-inch, automatic multi-roll HP DesignJet Z5600 PostScript Printer boosts media loading efficiency up to 75 percent3 and users can print up to 39 percent faster4 with quick-drying HP inks. For creating high-impact graphics, the pigment-based HP Vivid Photo inks are water and fade-resistant for maps and technical drawings that can last up to 200 years.5
HP’s most affordable 24-inch high-impact graphics printer

Additionally, HP Vivid Photo Inks, including chromatic red ink, deliver high-impact images that leave a lasting impression.
Easy one-click printing
Both new HP DesignJet Z-series printers include new HP DesignJet Click printing software to optimize time and simplify printing by enabling radically simple, one-click printing for all PDF, JPEG, TIFF, and HP-GL/2 files from a PC or Mac to the HP DesignJet Z-series printers.7,8 The software helps cut media costs with features like nesting and file error warnings, and users can now be more productive with real-time previews, along with driverless and multipage/multi-file PDF printing of posters, roll-up banners, CAD drawings, maps, and info-graphic presentations.
