HP Announces Bulk Solvent Ink Delivery System

PALO ALTO, CA | HP reports a bulk solvent ink delivery system said to provide high print quality, low cost per copy, and minimal user intervention in high-volume production environments. Leveraging company’s thermal inkjet 2.5 printhead technology, the new system is reportedly to be ideal for high-volume industrial coding and marking applications, providing clear, legible small-character printing. 

System features a new print cartridge; a 400-ml ink cartridge for a maintenance-free, high-uptime production environment; a modular system; proven components; reference documentation; and engineering support.

The Bulk Solvent Ink System builds on company’s portfolio of end-to-end packaging solutions that support a wide range of packaging applications, from coding and marking, to corrugated pre- and post-print with direct-to-board printing.

“Product coding and marking is critical to nearly every component of the packaging supply chain,” says Annette Friskopp, VP and general manager, Specialty Printing Systems, HP Inc. “Consumer packaged goods [CPG] companies and brands need to ensure that text, logos, and barcodes will remain intact after printing.”

The HP Bulk Solvent Ink System will use HP 2580 black solvent ink, said to deliver high-quality alphanumeric- and barcode-readable output. Company says 2580 black solvent ink offers long decap time and fast dry times, ideal for high-productivity intermittent printing.

The new system will be commercially available in late 2016.
