    Smile New user working as HP tech on HP Designjets and Seiko printers

    I'm a new user who been working as a tech with solvent for 10 years
    and HP latex since introduced. Also experienced on Onyx and Colorgate.
    Feel free to send me questions about printers.

    Regards,

    The latex technology is far better in therms of daily maintenance.

    A solvent printer have to be used every day to avoid drying out of ink resulting
    in clogged printheads, striping, etc. At worst case leading to replacing the heads.

    The HP latex L25500, or the newly replacement model L26500, does not have those
    problems. As this is a printer with customer replaceable printheads, maintenance
    is dramatically easier. You turn on the printer, do your prints and then turn it off, perhaps for weeks. The result will be the same, good quality.

    The newer L26500 printer have a more glossy finish to the latex ink which the
    precessor model L25500 did not have. Also the color gamut is improved for printing
    on textile media.

    The only drawback with the latex printer as I can see is that it takes a long time
    to heat up (5-10 minutes) from cold, and that the fans in it makes some noise.
    The recommendations for this printer is to put it in a separate room for printing,
    as well as printing lots of print on it at one time instead of one print occationally.
    This to eliminate unneccesary waiting times for heating up and so on.

    With this in mind, there is no reason to go back to solvent printing when you have
    upgraded to latex. And latex do not smell....
    For the big width in printing (100 inch), you now have the bigger L28500 model.

    I have a HP L25500 and an old Seiko Colorpainter 100s. With the latex i get a maximumspeed of 6 sqm, the Colorpainter speeds up to 14 sqm.
    Printing Pop-Up-Film with the latex will make the film bumpy.

    Most solvent printer medias can be used in a latex printer.

    However, due to the much higher dryer temperature (90-110 degrees celsius) in
    the front dryer heater on a latex, some medias made for a solvent printer can not
    cope with this, resulting in curled/cracled media and other bad results.

    The only solution is to lower the dryer temperature in the rip program by 5-10
    degrees celsius at a time, or change to another media brand that can cope with the
    higher dryer temperature.

    A solvent printer heater is around 45-55 degrees on the fixer and dryer, much lower
    than the latex printer who has a temperature of 50 degrees on the print heater and
    90-110 degrees on the dryer heater.
