HP simplifies printing and drives workflow efficiencies with new HP DesignJet portfolio

Today HP announced a new 36-inch DesignJet portfolio that simplifies the printing needs of AEC (architecture, engineering & construction) professionals who increasingly work in a hybrid environment - needing a high-quality printing experience, whenever and wherever they are.

The devices will also enable copy shops to better meet the requirements of AEC customers.

With 54% of AEC firms deploying a hybrid work policy, flexible working models are here to stay. This new approach has changed workflows, requiring aspects of the job, including large format printing, to be enabled in a hybrid environment.

Because of this, users need intuitive print technology that meets their technical needs, whether that is printing A3-A1 CAD drawings or architectural boards, all without compromising on security.

“More than ever, AEC pros, or the copy shops that serve them, need easy-to-use tools that help them be more productive and deliver high-quality work - whether they are in the office, at home or somewhere remote,” said Daniel Martinez, General Manager, Large Format Business, HP. “With our new HP DesignJet lineup - alongside software such as HP Click and the HP app - users can print, monitor jobs and check device status from virtually anywhere, as well as collaborate on documents with colleagues.”

With the new 36-inch DesignJet portfolio, HP helps customers to go beyond and run their businesses while achieving their sustainability goals.

Thanks to HP’s Forest First initiative, with every page a user prints with the HP DesignJet T850/T950 or the HP DesignJet XL 3800, HP collaborates with non-profit organisations , to ensure forests are restored.

The HP DesignJet T850/T950 are both made from at least from 35% recycled plastic, use cardboard-based cartridges, and can be scheduled to power on and off automatically to preserve energy consumption. Meanwhile the HP DesignJet XL 3800 is comprised of at least 33% recycled content.

HP has also prioritised cyber-security, with HP Wolf Security protection built into the HP DesignJet T850/T950 and XL 3800. HP Wolf Security provides comprehensive endpoint protection and resiliency that starts at the hardware level and extends across cloud-based software and services – safeguarding an organization’s PCs, printers and people from cyber predators.

With additional Enterprise-level Wolf security features, the HP DesignJet XL 3800 is also the world’s most secure large format printer, based on third-party analysis of security features available on the market.
