HP has shown off its latest latex printer, the R2000, a hybrid device that’s capable of printing to rigid boards as well as flexible materials. It takes 2.5m wide media, up to 50mm thick, and rolls up to 100kg. It can print at up to 88 sqm/hr. HP has also developed its first latex white ink for this printer, complete with an offline Rotation chamber to store the white ink printheads when not in use.
