HP brings inkjet tech to big business with 40K-nozzle printer

Elias Plastiras | April 16, 2014
Inkjet technology isn't often the go-to choice for big businesses looking to get things done quickly and efficiently, but HP wants to change that with its new Officejet Enterprise Colour MFP X585. It's said to be able to print twice as fast as a comparable laser (up to 75 colour pages per minute in fast mode), while offering a low total cost per ownership and minimal maintenance requirements.

The top half of the new enterprise printer is designed with workflow in mind, offering a 100-sheet tray (on the X585z model) for single-pass, automatic duplex copying and scanning, a built-in 8in screen, and a pull-out keyboard (on the X585z) for things such as document editing. Optional modules can be installed in a dedicated bay (called a hardware integration pocket) for added capabilities such as NFC touch-to-print, and Wi-Fi access.

Paper handling is facilitated by a 300-sheet face-down output tray, a 50-sheet multi-purpose tray, and a 500-sheet input tray, which feeds an engine that can perform automatic duplex printing. Only up to A4-sized paper can be used at this point, and stock up to 300 gsm photo paper can be used. Interface connections include USB 2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet.

The HP Officejet Enterprise Colour MFP X585 is available now with a starting price of $2890.
