HP Latex 1500 is a 3.2-meter roll-to-roll wide format printer with an indoor high-quality speed of 45 sq/m per hour. HP thermal inkjet print heads maintain quality print after print with 1200 dpi resolution and auto nozzle replacement. This printer is equipped with Optical Media Advance Sensor (OMAS) for precise and accurate motion control of media advance between print and swaths. The optimizer solution is positively charged, the ink is negatively charged the two are attracted to each other enabling the printer to reach higher image quality at higher speed.

“We aim to provide the highest quality results for every design and being the most advance and innovative architectural and industrial membrane company, we wanted the best printing solution for our products. With our hands-on experience with the current HP Latex 570 for more than 2 years, we were pretty sure of the same technology in 10 feet as our next upgrade.“ commented, Punit Jhaveri founder at Lucky-Tech Membranes.

HP Latex 1500 can also print two rolls at a time with double side blockout and double side backlit options. An optional ink collector kit enables us to print on porous media such as textile and mesh. Automatic maintenance makes life easy and saves time and money as no daily printhead maintenance is needed.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
