Seiko II ColorPainter H2P-104s and H2P-74s solvent printer review Print E-mail
Seiko Infotech booth at Sign Africa 2012 tradeshow

Seiko Infotech booth at Sign Africa 2012 tradeshow.

In July 2012 Seiko Infotech launched its new ColorPainter H2P printer, which has several new features that make it stand out from previous models.

The ColorPainter H2P series printers are specifically designed for a high-volume digital printing, offering a bigger (and thus better) capacity four-color ink system, and VX inks to reduce the total cost of ownership for high volume sign makers.

Some of the features are:

Large capacity ink reservoir

Easy-to-replenish reservoirs hold 8 liters of inks per color, for round-the-clock operations.

VX inks

VX inks are specially formulated for the H2P series to achieve high-speed printing while keeping durability and competitive price.

(DDP) Dynamic Dot Printing Technology

Controls ink droplet, which enables the printer to print from fine highlighted image to heavy painted spot color at unmatched high-speed printing.

Smart Pass Technology 3

Reduces overspray and eliminates pass-to-pass banding.

Nozzle Mapping

Smart Nozzle Mapping function can supplement print head nozzles for emergency.

I also estimate these printers are made in Japan and not in China, though we will check this. We have seen these printers at Reklama Moscow 2012 expo a few weeks ago, but the booth was crammed full of printers and cutters and it was not realistic to find the manufacturing plate.
