The HP Designjet printing system
Turn orders in record time with the fastest 60-inch
production printer for graphics6. Efficiently produce
outstanding color and black-and-white prints with 6 HP Vivid
Photo Inks. Rely on powerful performance from an easy-touse printer.
Outstanding speed
HP Double Swath Technology provides breakthrough speed and performance. The
HP Designjet Z6600 Production Printer includes two sets of three HP 771 and HP 773
Designjet Printheads, creating a wide print swath—up to 1.67 inches/42.5 mm—and a high
firing frequency to deliver prints with amazing speed. Six bi-color printheads feature 1,056
nozzles per color, 1200 nozzles per inch, and small drop volumes for top photo quality.
The HP Optical Media Advance Sensor (OMAS) allows you to print at top speeds and still
get great output results. This breakthrough technology improves paper-advance control and
accuracy, so the printer can print at higher speeds across multiple environmental conditions
without impairing image quality.
Efficient and unattended operation
HP Optical Media Advance Sensor (OMAS)
Gain efficient operation using a six-ink printing system with an optimized configuration. Print
from your favorite design applications or through third-party RIPs. Ensure image quality and
reduce cleaning and waste using automatic drop detection and intelligent masking.
The HP Multi-dimensional Smart Drop Placement Technology enables the highest quality
possible for a 6-ink system while guarding against potential media-feed or drop-placement
errors.
The optimal combination of inks for each RGB or CMYK pixel is obtained using a dithering
algorithm, which depends on the pixel tone rather than each individual color. Printed results
are then optimized in terms of color gamut, smooth color transitions, and minimal image
grain. After this step, the resulting image resolution is expanded to control more precisely
each drop placement and to spread drops between the different passes using frequencyanalysis methods that minimize ink-media interactions (dot visibility, coalescence, bleeding,
etc.) and artifacts related to dot-placement errors.
Intelligent masking saves time, ink, and media by reducing reprints and extending
printhead life. In multi-pass print modes, dots in every scan row can be printed by different
physical nozzles on different passes.
Failing nozzles are identified by the embedded Optical Drop Detector. These are then
flagged “do not use” because of misdirected drops, weak drops (low drop weight or drop
velocity), or non-operation. Only “good” nozzles are used at each print location so banding
and image quality defects are eliminated. After printing, the printer automatically performs
recovery routines to restore failed nozzles during printhead service station cycles, saving
time, ink, and the hassle of manual user interventions.
HP Vivid Photo Inks
HP Vivid Photo Inks
Create impressive long–lasting images in color and black-and white with rich optical density
and smooth transitions using HP Vivid Photo Inks. Print on many substrates to deliver a
wide range of jobs such as posters, canvas prints, and POP signs. HP Designjet printheads
are designed together with HP Vivid Photo inks to provide precise, accurate placement of
smaller drops and high speed. Each printhead prints two colors of ink with 1,056 nozzles per
color.
Compared with large-format inkjet printers under $25,000 USD for graphic applications. Based on the fastest-rated color speeds as published by manufacturers as of October 2013.
Test methods vary.
