HP has launched Stitch S series and, with the release of the new printers has entered into textile printing for sportswear/fashion, interior décor and soft signage applications.
The newly released portfolio of digital textile printers delivers fast, precise colour-matching, alongside efficient, simplified processes. It is HP’s latest innovation designed to ease commercial digital print adoption.
The printers couple HP Thermal Inkjet technology with industry-standard dyes for superior colour durability. The first-ever built-in spectrophotometer enables Stitch’s fast and exact colour-matching. The introduction includes three new printers from 64-inch to 126-inch wide: the HP Stitch S300 64-in Printer, the HP Stitch S500 64-in Printer, and the HP Stitch S1000 126-in Printer.
The HP Stitch S300 Printer includes the first user-replaceable printhead, resulting in decreased down-times and service costs. The new printer was designed specifically for new-to-dye sublimation professionals, prototyping departments, and growing print providers.
HP Stitch S500 Printer enables predictable dye sublimation colour and fewer media waste for production environments. With symmetrical 2xCMYK printhead configuration and Optical Media Advance Sensor, this 64-inch printer allows for saturated and reliable one pass mode for true top speed. The HP Stitch S500 Printer was designed specifically for high production sites.
The digitally printed textiles market is experiencing double-digit annual growth, forecast to reach $5.5 billion by 2023 and with the launch of HP Stitch S more digital print transformations will come into effect.
