HP-Scitex FB910 UV combo printer reviews begin Print E-mail

The ColorSpan 9840uv becomes entry level to the world of serious production machines with an HP Scitex designation: HP-Scitex FB910. Combo-style means it has a moving transport belt, as opposed to a stationary platen (which is called hybrid style).

This is the HP Scitex FB910 UV combo printer, this printer works with transport belt and stationary platen. ISA trade show 2008.

You can experiment printing on, Coroplast, Fome-cor, GatorBoard, Komatex, Sintra and other materials. Many UV printer brands can’t print well on Coroplast, or the ink falls off after a few weeks. But I visited a printshop outside Chicago that used the ColorSpan 9840uv primarily on Coroplast: all day every day.

Now that this printer has a new name and a new home, it’s time to undertake a new evaluation. This way we can address any issues that are widely known and see how they have been, or will be, resolved by the newly designated team through HP.

Another reason why now (summer 2008) is a good time to take a fresh look at the HP Scitex FB910 is because so many other combo style UV printers are available, especially the IP&I Cube 260, the GCC StellarJet 250uv, the various Dilli printers (gaining increasing market share via Agfa). At the high end Durst has introduced many new combo style printers, such as the Rho 700; Screen has introduced their Truepress jet2500UV. No wonder VUTEk and HP have more competition. There are now combo style printers even at entry level: the RasterPrinters Daytona H700UV.
