5 Compelling Ways HP PageWide Technology Can Improve Business Printing


HP PageWide technology offers you sustainable, fast printing. In fact, two times faster than laser.

As much as we’ve come to rely on our tablets and other devices, exceptional and efficient printing is still a requirement for business. It helps get work done well, it makes a positive impression about your business, and, if implemented correctly, improves your company’s bottom line.

That’s why HP developed HP PageWide Technology — it’s a new standard in business printing that combines amazing print speeds with energy efficiency and quality for up to 50% less cost per page than comparable color laser printers. Instead of using a printhead that travels back and forth across the page, HP PageWide Technology uses a stationary printhead that spans the width of a page and contains more than 40,000 tiny nozzles.

Here are five compelling ways HP PageWide technology can improve your business printing:

1. Print faster

Printers using HP PageWide Technology print at speeds up to 70 pages per minute, regardless of whether they’re producing pages in black or in color.

And with HP PageWide Technology, an ink droplet travels at 33 feet per second to the page. To put that kind of speed into context, it would take one of our ink droplets 3.64 seconds to finish the 40-yard dash.

That’s up to two times as fast as a similarly-classed color laser printer.

In fact, the HP OfficeJet Pro X576dw MFP was recently certified as the world’s fastest desktop printer.

2. Print better

Printers using HP PageWide Technology use super-microscopic ink droplets that come in at 25 microns and contain six picoliters of ink — which enables very high-quality prints every time.

How microscopic are we talking? Well, each ink droplet is about 1/3 the size of a smartphone pixel.

3. Print more reliably

With HP PageWide printers, you can say goodbye to paper jams and other annoying printing-related obstacles and setbacks.

According to independent tests conducted by Buyers Lab, the HP OfficeJet Enterprise Color MFP X585 has printed more than 200,000 pages without failure.

If you printed 200,000 pages without failure, you’d have gone through 400 reams of paper, which is enough to cover more than two football fields in paper.

That’s a lot of paper.

4. Print for less cost per page

Printers that use HP PageWide Technology can improve performance and lower printing costs by as much as 50% in comparison with color laser printers. And the less you have to spend on printing, the more funding you could have for other important facets of your business.

5. Print for less energy cost

Compared to laser printers, printers that use HP PageWide Technology make as much as a 55% smaller carbon footprint. This saves the equivalent of 50 gallons of gas per printer per 100,000 pages printed.

Additionally, on average printers that use HP PageWide Technology consume less than 0.6 kilowatt hour (kWh) per week — which equals out a bit less than the energy it takes to cook one frozen meal per day.

All told, printers using HP PageWide Technology use up to 84% less energy than laser printers.
