HP has launched its HP PageWide Web Press T235 HD, an entry-level inkjet web targeted commercial printers.
The new continuous-feed inkjet web press, launched in February at the Hunkeler Innovation Days trade event  uses HP’s High Definition Nozzle Architecture (HDNA), which was first announced for HP’s inkjet web presses in February 2015. HDNA has a native resolution of 2,400 nozzles per inch.
It will be priced at around 15% less than the faster HP PageWide Web Press T240. It joins a number of other presses in the T series.
The T235 prints at a maximum speed of 122m/min in performance mode and 61m/min in quality mode, which is around half the maximum speed that the HDNA technology is rated for and around 25% slower than the T240. The machine will be upgradable to the T240 specifications.
“We found an opportunity at a lower end where we could offer a lower-speed entry-point for some of those print service providers that may now be entering the market,” said PageWide director of marketing and business development David Murphy.
Murphy also announced that the T200 series now comes with an optional dryer expansion module for heavier coverage applications, which should lead to a 10% increase in drying efficiency.
