Seymour Sign & Print Ltd, are pleased to announce their continued investment in the latest technology investing in a new HP Latex 335 wide format printer. The HP Latex printer replaces the Roland VF2-640 printer that the company purchased in 2020.
Having used Solvent printing technology for over a decade, and following continuous concerns over consistency of the print from the Roland VF2, and it’s TR2 inks that could impact their client, Seymour Sign & Print took the decision to make the switch to the HP Latex Family.
The HP Latex Inks, are environmentally friendly, meaning Seymour Sign & Print can offer a wider variety of environmentally friendly products, with an increasing number of manufacturers developing PVC free, and more recyclable medias, Seymour Sign & Print has future proofed itself by being able to work with these. In addition there’s no harmful solvents in the atmosphere, creating a safer working environment for the team and visitors to the workshop.
The absence of solvent from the ink also means that the inks do not interfere with adhesives, which is particularly important when it comes to vehicle wrapping. The Latex Inks also offer an instant curing ink, with no need for out gassing.
David goes on to say “The HP Latex has delivered everything that we were promised, comparing the prints between the two machines, the HP is certainly comparable despite the lack of spot orange and green inks. Sacrificing the Orange and Green inks and moving the the HP has seen some of the inconsistencies vanish, we can now consistently print and contour cut vinyl graphics without the gamble as to whether all the colours will cut properly. In addition we’ve streamlined production, with no waiting for the inks to cure or outgas, and can print, laminate and cut sameday.”
Seymour Sign & Print would like to thank Mick from Pyramid Display for his advice and assistance in supplying the HP Machine.
