“We provide maximum protection for customers’ investment by providing in-depth advice during the sale, proposing upgrade strategies, and maintaining an increased number of engineers and spare parts in stock to minimize equipment downtime in the event of a failure. In addition, continuous innovation and the consultative nature of customer relationships help us develop the best solutions in the market. ”

This spring, HP inaugurated a new plant in Caesarea, Israel, with a manufacturing area of ​​13,000 m2. This and other factories around the world are excellent proof of the strong customer demand for HP large format industrial printing solutions. In 2007, HP’s business in this sector grew by 19%, while the market size compared to 2006 was 14%.


When developing new technologies for latex printing, HP has paid particular attention to protecting the environment. These inks represent a worthy alternative to the traditional ones used in large format printing.

HP Latex Printing Systems use a water-based latex ink that is odorless (1), high brightness and environmental resistance. Suitable for a wide variety of materials, this ink, when used with new large format printing technologies, enables printers to increase productivity while reducing the overall environmental impact of the printing process.

Printing with HP Latex Inks not only delivers high quality prints, but also allows prints to last more than three years in harsh environments without lamination. (2)

Hewlett-Packard’s new large format printing technology focuses on dedicated printheads with expandable print technology and a unique optical paper advance sensor. Its use in conjunction with latex inks makes it possible to create fundamentally new printing systems with unprecedented productivity (3).

The first printers based on latex technology will be showcased at Drupe in May. Prices and release schedule will be announced at the same time.


The integration of the recently acquired NUR Macro printers Ltd and MacDiarmid Color Span has enabled HP to launch a wide range of industrial solvent and UV inks. The HP line of fine art printers has been expanded with the following innovations:
