South Granville-based Sydney Print Media has purchased a new HP Latex R2000 Plus printer, which owner Karl Sun says will offer clients higher quality printing products and faster turnaround times.
The new HP Latex R2000 Plus, jointly installed by Celmac and HP, has become the third HP Latex R series printer in the Sydney Print Media stable.
Sun, a trade printer, has owned Sydney Print Media since 2005, and ventured into large format printing in 2008.
Over the years he has added an array of printers and kit to his factory floors – most notably the Inca flatbed, swissQprint flatbed and roll-to-roll printer, as well as the Zünd automatic cutting table.
The company provides high quality value for money design, print, and display products and services to business that needs branding solutions in the print media.
Its offerings include banners, posters, POS displays, exterior and interior wall signs, rooftop signs, advertising stickers, vehicle graphics, floor decals, vinyl letters and graphics, flyers, postcards, business cards, catalogues, customised cardboard packaging, and exhibition displays.
Sun said the new HP Latex R2000 Plus, which was purchased in December and installed in January, was based on the decision to particularly improve the quality of the display products, corflute, posters and signage it offers to its customers.
As well as offering high quality print-output, the 2.5m wide printer delivers high production speeds of between 45 and 100 square metres per hour. As a hybrid for both flexible and rigid printing, it can create graphics on a wide range of roll-fed, rigid and flexible substrates up to 50mm thick, with ease.
The HP Latex R2000 Plus delivers glossy white on transparent and coloured media, thanks to the HP Latex White Ink, and provides versatility through its single ink set – attributes which Sun also considered in his purchasing decision.
The new printer will not only complement Sydney Print Media’s HP Latex R roll-to-roll printers, but according to Sun, its ability to print on a variety of substrates, is an added benefit.
Regarding the purchase and installation of the new printer, Sun said he was impressed by the speed and service with which it was carried out, confirming that the purchase and installation had gone very smoothly.
“Jonny Romney, Celmac’s NSW state manager was a big help to me when I purchased the new printer, and the installation went very well, thanks to Vincent Crasto at HP,” he said.
