HP has announced a new inkjet printer range that will feature print speeds of 70ppm, due for launch in Spring 2013. The Officejet Pro X and Pro X MFP are aimed at providing faster prints in the inkjet range, with Industry Analysts noting that the product could “find its way into traditional business customer accounts”.
In terms of technical information, the devices will utilise HP’s PageWide Technology, which will allow them to “deliver up to twice the speed of many laser printers” – hence the 70ppm speed that has been announced. The printers are also designed to use “half the energy” of comparable laser devices.
HP’s official documentation uses the slogan “up to twice the speed, half the cost” in relation to the laser printer market, with the devices’ PageWide Technology referred to as a “groundbreaking print bar that spans the width of a page” that allows for the large number of prints per minute.
The company’s cost justification lies in claiming that the cost per page will be half that of laser printers. The devices will also feature automatic duplexing and a 500-sheet paper tray, with ePrint compatibility as well as a USB port providing easy-access prints.
