HP announced that beta customer ADC Reproservice B.V. has selected the HP PageWide XL 5000 Multifunction Printer (MFP) to increase productivity, bring more large-format printing in-house and streamline its workflow. Announced in April as part of the HP PageWide XL Printer portfolio, the HP PageWide XL 5000 MFP provides fast and efficient monochrome and color prints in a single device with up to 30 percent savings in total production costs.
The MFP provides small- to medium-sized reprographic houses and enterprise central reprographic departments (CRDs) mid-volume technical document production at speeds up to 14 D/A1-size prints per minute. “Before installing the HP PageWide XL 5000 MFP, we outsourced 40 percent of our business because we struggled with turnarounds for high-volume large-format color jobs,” said Edwin Junggeburth, production director, ADC Reproservice B.V. “Adding the HP PageWide XL 5000 MFP has put us in the right place from a production standpoint to recover 100 percent of that work and provide our customers faster turnarounds.”
With the HP PageWide XL 5000 MFP, ADC Reproservice produces color and monochrome technical documents, line drawings, government infrastructure projects and GIS maps quickly, printing the first page in as few as 30 seconds. “Reprographers and CRDs need fast, reliable printing technology to meet client demands for tight turnarounds,” said Ramon Pastor, vice president and general manager, Large Format Printing Business, HP. “The HP PageWide XL 5000 MFP meets these production needs easily, providing radically faster delivery and excellent document quality that beats LED, while reducing costs.”
The HP PageWide XL 5000 MFP enables ADC Reproservice to produce mixed color and black-and-white sets in 50 percent of the time, already saving the company 15-20 operator hours in the first week of production.“Our clients request GIS maps and other technical documents in both color and black and white, and we used to have to print these jobs on separate devices and manually collate them, which required additional time and resources,” said Junggeburth. “With the HP PageWide XL 5000 MFP, we are able to streamline production with one device that has helped us reduce time and labor costs, and we hope to decommission our existing light-emitting diode (LED) technology to save space and eliminate our monthly service fee.”
