HP PageWide C500 Press

Increase press performance and optimize your print quality with HP’s technology innovations.

The innovative top feeder is designed to handle a wide range of industry grade sheets including thin and micro-flutes while keeping to minimal footprint. It can feed the print smoothly in consistent speed of 75 m/min (246 ft/min), while automatically handle poor-quality stacks and differences.

The print bridge has 7 print beams, with 13 individually replaceable print heads that are arranged across each beam. The first beam coats the board with HP’s water-based Bonding Agent selectively as needed. 6 beams print CMYK with total of about 1M nozzles achieve multi-pass quality in a single pass.

The unique Virtual Belt technology ensures precise media motion control. It guides boards through the printing process at production speed, with precise dot placement accuracy across the full run. The unique and innovative structure of the virtual belt ensures consistent accuracy and functionality over time.

The Corrugated Grips hold the edges of warped sheets flat throughout the print process.

The C500 true water-based ink enables extensive compliance to the global health and safety requirements as well as leading food packaging standards for primary non-contact packaging.

HP print heads technology delivers offset print quality in a cost-effective manner. 1M nozzles and X6 redundancy guarantee high and consistent print quality.

The conveyor allows water to be absorbed by the paper, while the pigments are held on the surface by the bonding agent.

Any remaining water is fully evaporated and the image is completely dry. The process is managed by both hot air and IR lamps that effectively dry a wide range of media weights at high speed.

The varnish provides the necessary durability against scrape and scratches.

The stacker ensures consistent sorting and stacking of boards, according to quality.
