“This new PageWide Advantage platform is a game-changer for the commercial print industry,” said Annette Friskopp, global head and general manager at HP PageWide. “HP has listened to our customers, and we realise ease of use and up-time are critical success factors. This new press offers configurations to enable customers to optimise the press for their quality, productivity, versatility, and economics to grow their digital production businesses.”

The HP PageWide Advantage 2200 is capable of speeds up to 500-ft/min colour and 800-ft/min mono and printing high coverage jobs at up to 90 million US letter sized mono images per month or 214,000 personalised A3 colour duplex sheets per shift. 

With the ability to print using HP Brilliant Ink and 2400 native nozzle per inch printheads, this press offers top notch quality to address a wide range of higher value applications, from more colourful trade and educational books to high-coverage, impactful direct mail pieces that differentiate clients in the market.

The HP PageWide Advantage 2200 handles a wide range of media weights from 40-gsm up to 300-gsm. 

The machine includes a single print arch design with an innovative, robust paper path with fewer components, reducing the number of parts to manage and therefore overall maintenance and servicing time.

Designed to offer configuration flexibility, this press features a modular design for customers to start with a lower capacity machine and enhance the machine as their business grows or their application mix shifts. 

It comes equipped with HP’s innovative High-Efficiency Drying (HED) system that minimises power usage at higher print speeds by recirculating up to 80% of the air heated during the drying process.

The HP PageWide Advantage 2200 is expected to be commercially available worldwide on 19 October 19 2022.
