The HP Designjet L26100 wide-format inkjet printer can handle a wider variety of media types than many competing models, including vinyl, textiles, and film. It has fast output speeds, and can handle media up to 61 inches in width. Its automatic cutter also reduces manual labor, but high prices for HP L26100 printer ink will make it an expensive machine to operate.
In addition to its expense, the other challenge in operating the L26100 is its large size. It measures 54x97x27.5 inches, and it weighs a very heavy 397 pounds, including the Designjet L26100 printer ink supplies. The unit has a maximum resolution of 1200 dpi, and does offer lower settings for conserving supply costs.
The machine can handle many types of media designed for both indoor and outdoor applications. It can even print vehicle wraps and outdoor fabric banners, thanks to the latex HP L26100 ink design, which also dries quickly and is odorless. Double-sided printing is supported, with the HP Optical Media Advance Sensor handling the registration automatically to ensure the sides line up properly. Both USB and ethernet ports are included, and users can monitor many aspects of the device over the network.
The inkjet system consists of six total HP L26100 ink cartridges, with light cyan and light magenta added to the standard cyan, magenta, yellow, and black supplies. The Designjet L26100 ink cartridges can be replaced on the fly in the middle of a print, however, minimizing downtime.
With a very wide range of media support and quick speeds, the HP L26100 is near the top of its class for wide-format printing. Its bulky size and high price tag are serious hurdles to overcome, however, so only larger print shops will likely have the budget to support its operation.
