HP Latex technology helps Discount Displays cut costs

September 03, 2019

Discount Displays, has installed a HP Latex R2000 Plus printer that replaces two older machines.

The Surrey-based company founded in 1982 on the ethos of providing great quality products at the lowest possible prices while delivering exceptional customer service and these tenets run through every part of our business, from choosing our product range to after-sales support.

"I saw the HP R2000 back in February and was blown away by it," says Giles Fletcher, production manager at Discount Displays. "We were convinced to make the investment when we compared its actual running figures with those of our existing two printers: service contracts, maintenance, ink - when combined, the new R2000 is saving us money day to day."

With high production speeds of between 45 and 100 square meters per hour, paired with quality print-output, the HP Latex R2000 Plus is a 2.5m latex printer that offers the flexibility to print across a range of different substrate types; both roll-fed, flexible media, and rigid substrates up to 50mm thick on the flat-bed, without having to compromise on quality.

Papergraphics the large-format print specialist installed the new machine in the summer, which is now running alongside an HP DesignJet Z6200 and two HP Latex 360 1.6m roll-to-roll printers.

Overall the printer is a game-changer in regard to quality, flexibility and vibrancy of colour - everything you want in a printer. There really is nothing to rival it."

Fletcher continues. "The big benefit for us is its flexibility; we're printing both roll and rigid media. We can also load materials very quickly, and it's easy to load up and get going.

Papergraphics also supplied Onyx Thrive software.

We've bought all of our HP machines through Doug Gilbertson at Papergraphics, simply because he provides good honest advice," adds Fletcher. "He makes recommendations based on what's right for us rather than just to make a sale, and always helps with any issues following installation, for instance with materials. You can't put a price on that kind of knowledge and experience."
