HP Designjet T1600

Experience unprecedented printing collaboration

Collaborate seamlessly with the smart 15.6-inch interface, enabling teams to quickly access shared folders to print, copy, scan, and share from a single device


The HP DesignJet T1600 Series stands out as an exceptional choice for producing construction drawings and plans. It excels not only in full colour renders but also in delivering sharp and precise site drawings, equipped with grey ink and two black inks.

Its flexibility shines through with the option to select either a Single or Dual Roll configuration, making it ideal for A0, A1, or A2 prints. The automatic trimming feature streamlines your printing process. Additionally, the choice to include Postscript support enables quick printing of multiple PDF files, eliminating the need to print them one by one.

Ink replacement is conveniently accessible from the front of the printer, with ink bays on either side. You can opt for standard 130ml ink cartridges or opt for the more cost-effective larger XL 300ml inks.

User interactions are primarily front facing, with a strategically positioned control panel and a robust top stacker that neatly organises your printed output. Paper changes are also hassle-free, enhancing efficiency for busy users.
