New tapered wheels provide easy and safe media loading, preventing media edge damage.

The HP Scitex FB550 printer offers greater image quality and full bleed on maximum widths. It has the same capability of printing onto virtually any rigid or flexible media up to 64mm.

HP Scitex FB550 Flatbed Printing

Flatbed Digital printing is the reproduction of digital images using inkjet printing, typically on plastic or paperboard, although a wide variety of materials can be printed (common, photographic paper, film, cloth, plastic, etc.). Flatbed digital printers like the HP Scitex FB550 use inks made of acrylic monomers that are then exposed to strong UV-light to cure, or polymerize them. This process allows for printing on a wide variety of surfaces such as wood or metal, carpet, tile, and even glass.

The biggest advantage that you can get from the HP Scitex FB550 is the versatility that it offers. No matter what material, what shape, and what size of the material you want to print on, as long as it has a flat surface, is less than 64mm thick and does not exceed the maximum size of printable area of the flatbed, you can print on it. The resolution of prints produced by the HP Scitex FB550 is also very high and it can print in quick speed. The ink consumption of the HP Scitex 550 is also very efficient and you are able to use the ink as optimally as possible.
