The latest addition to the HP Stitch digital printing range, the S1000, enables print service providers to diversify their soft signage and interior décor offerings while meeting more challenging customer needs.

It provides users the with the option to print directly onto fabric or onto transfer paper, simplifying workflows without compromising on results, while 1,200 native dpi printheads and HP’s Drop & Dry system ensure deep blacks, vivid colours and extreme resolution to deliver work of the highest quality.

A newly incorporated contact heater provides enhanced backlit saturation performance on direct-to-fabric jobs, meaning colours appear brighter and more vivid than ever before.

HP Stitch S1000 is designed to provide rapid turnaround production start-up times and speeds of up 220 square metres per hour and also offers the possibility to double the throughput on substrates of up to 1.6 metres with a dual roll accessory.

A smart nozzle compensation system and optical media advance sensor work together to ensure reliable image quality and an additional integrated aerosol and vapour extraction system make meeting tight deadlines easier.

User-replaceable printheads and HP preventative maintenance support helps increase uptime, while spreader rollers, 10-litre ink supplies and rolls up to 300kg allow print professionals to confidently leave the device to print unattended.

Combined with the HP PrintOS app, print operations can be easily controlled from anywhere at any time,  while also allowing users to make data-driven decisions. If working with a fleet, the HP Configuration Centre ensures jobs can be distributed efficiently for maximum productivity, with a built-in spectrophotometer providing colour consistency across the fleet.

Tests show that in 40% less time, a single operator can easily load both transfer and textile rolls as a result of features including automatic media tension adjustment, a simple media path, automatic and optimised printhead cleaning and a device warm-up process that occurs in parallel with loading.

The updated HP Stitch S1000 uses Eco Passport certified dye sublimation inks, a standard that verifies the safety of chemical products used in the textile and leather industry. The printer also benefits from HP’s free and convenient printhead recycling scheme.

“The new HP Stitch S1000 will allow print service providers to expand their dye-sublimation production versatility even further and say yes to ambitious projects, as well as demanding applications,” said Oscar Vidal, large format global business strategy director at HP Inc., headquartered in Palo Alto, California. “With the large format industry set for a progressive year, HP’s latest printer ensures soft signage and interior decoration professionals are able to handle a diverse range of customer needs, safe in the knowledge they have the technology to deliver.”
