HP has announced the expansion of its large format portfolio to help technical design professionals enhance the value they offer their customers.

By leveraging HP’s portfolio, technical design professionals can easily shift from a cumbersome, hard copy-based project workflow to an intuitive and flawless digital workflow, making print communication more efficient, integrated and accessible.

The range of new printers, software solutions and media choices is designed to help technical firms drive new business opportunities. Benefits to AEC, GIS and CAD professionals include:

  • Three new large format printers offering an improved workflow experience, including the HP Designjet T1200, HP Designjet T770, and HP Designjet T620 printer series
  • Four enhanced software solutions designed to increase productivity, reduce costs and deliver high-quality results: HP Instant Printing Utility 3.0., Serif PosterDesigner Pro for HP, SCP Reprocontrol for HP and HP Designjet accounting tool
  • New and improved HP bond papers with ColorPRO Technology and HP Recycled Bond Paper, made of 100% recycled base paper
  • An HP carbon footprint calculator utility, updated to support HP Designjet large format printers

Speeding up the workflow

From winning bids and developing plans to interacting with peers and clients, digital information sharing is essential to the operation of AEC/GIS/CAD firms. A wide range of HP large format printers and multi-format devices are helping to shorten project cycles, offering a seamless transformation of digital designs into documents and ways to digitise documents back into the design-and-make process. HP devices are 3-D/BIM ready and designed to easily integrate into customers’ workflow and minimise the number of manual operations.

Improved printing performance

The latest range also features a powerful in-printer processing architecture, achieving faster print speeds. Delivering the thinnest lines in the industry with exact detail, crisp text and clear and accurate drawings, the printers enable professionals in the architecture, engineering and GIS workgroups to make a real impact in their presentations and projects. (HP-GL/2 addressable, when compared to major competitors in this product category.)

Designed for medium-sized CAD and GIS workgroups, the HP Designjet T1200 printer series provides the performance of two printers in one. New features, such as two online rolls with smart switching media length tracking and high-volume ink cartridges, including the new Original HP 726 matte black ink cartridge, offer a continuous printing experience at speeds of two D-sized prints per minute. The double roll technology helps to manage the changing demands of different projects, radically reducing downtime and solving individual printing needs.

With the new HP Designjet T770 printer series, a reliable plug-and-play 44in printer using HP Vivera inks, small teams will experience fast and easy CAD/GIS printing capabilities with an easily accessible top loading roll and expandable memory. New features, such as built-in networking for easy sharing, memory upgrades, and the ability to print without opening applications, allow users to put their energy into designing rather than focusing on printing.

Professional solutions for small workgroups

The third addition in the portfolio, the HP Designjet T620 printer, is designed specifically for small CAD and GIS workgroups. It delivers professional results while enabling small workgroups to save time with an easy set up, built-in networking, batch printing, compatibility with the latest applications and operating systems, and original HP Vivera inks and printing materials. This reliable printer offers customers peace of mind to focus on their projects.
