HP SitePrint launches in Australia

HP Inc has announced the availability of HP SitePrint in Australia, following a successful general availability in five regions with a proven track record across North America and Europe.

HP SitePrint is a robotic solution that prints complex construction site layouts with pinpoint accuracy, empowering construction pros with up to ten times the productivity of traditional chalk-line layout.

HP SitePrint has been used by general contractors, trade contractors and geospatial service providers on more than a hundred projects, across five regions – including North America, UK and Ireland, the DACH region, Benelux, Nordics, and Iberia.

“We’re thrilled to be making our innovative HP SitePrint solution available to customers in Australia and New Zealand,” said Jaume Homs, HP’s Global Head of Sales and Go to Market for SitePrint.

“We’ve successfully demonstrated in North America and Europe the ability to radically improve productivity when it comes to the layout process. Now, customers from the ANZ region will also be able to test SitePrint’s efficiency. By digitising what has long been a manual and time-consuming task, SitePrint makes it faster and easier for construction professionals to bring an idea to life on-site, while also providing layout accuracy and reducing costs.”

The HP SitePrint solution has several key hardware and services features:

  • Autonomous obstacle avoidance – sensors for obstacle detection to increase SitePrint’s autonomy when operating onsite, further allowing layout professionals to focus on other tasks while the robot is at work
  • Comprehensive range of inks – a range of eight easily interchangeable inks designed for a variety of surfaces – including, tarmac, rough concrete, plywood, or formwork, amongst others – and different durability requirements from permanent to erasable to improve the versatility of the solution, including three colours (cyan, magenta, black), different compositions that work both on porous and water-proof surfaces, as well as the choice of either permanent or semi-permanent durability. Inks are now delivered via easy to swap in/out cartridges
  • Robotic Total Stations to achieve precise layouts – As of February 1st, 2024, HP SitePrint is compatible with leading Robotic Total StationsRTSs in the industry; including the Leica TS16, Leica iCR80, Leica iCR70, Trimble RTS573, and the Topcon LN-150.
  • Simple layout management with cloud-based tools
    • The Robotic Total Station set-up process has been integrated into the tablet-operated SitePrint user interface, significantly reducing how long it takes to get a job started
    • Cloud functionalities allow users to manage the entire layout workflow from virtually anywhere, log support requests, and share CAD documents from design office to job site.

HP SitePrint will be commercially available in Australia from May 1, 2024. Inquiries can be made via the new website, here.
