Equipment Description

We offer for sale HP Scitex FB550 plotter from 2017 (installation in
July 2017). We are the first owner of the machine, purchased as a new
one. The print width is 162cm.
The machine is in very good condition, prints stable and very good

The plotter is mainly used for printing plastics and plywood in the
production of POS materials, very often in high quality, therefore it
has only reprinted around 15,000m2 so far. This is not the result
found in traditional large-format production.

The plotter is very well maintained, regularly serviced and cleaned.
In addition to standard operator activities, we also perform many
additional activities, such as cleaning fans, filters and more. We
will teach a new buyer all the details.

The machine has several elements that decided about its purchase, and
they do not always occur with its competitors (branded companies):
– pressure rollers at the material entry and exit – they allow to add
uneven plywood or cardboard to the ground,
– continuous printing mode – allows you to print repetitive elements
with virtually no stopping the carriage – greatly increases
– many operator activities related to the heads (e.g. purge) are
performed from the touch screen
– white printing problem solved – the machine allows you to change the
lights to white – you can do it yourself without intervention of the
service, so you can use white only when it is needed, thus avoiding
damage to the heads.
– the display shows service activities to be carried out by the
operator – the employee is forced to perform them regularly, which
affects the life of the machine
– the plotter allows you to easily print several utilities side by
side, also in a continuous mode – we sometimes printed small logos in
the middle of plexiglass sheets (then displays were made of them)
– the machine has a very wide range of profiles that allows you to
print in very high quality, as well as high-speed printing modes – we
tested several banners, the real time is 40m2 per hour

The machine prints on both rigid, flat and roll media. It is not
equipped with the original roll-to-roll printing system, but we add to
it the racks we add, thanks to which we even printed polyester
fabrics. Media on which we have successfully printed:
– foamed and hard PVC
– plexiglass
– dibond from every supplier (with the previous machine – oce arizona
– it did not always succeed)
– polypropylene
– solid cardboard
– corrugated board
– plywood
– monomeric film
– banner
– polyester fabric for highlights
– magnetic foils
– roller blind material
– dispa type disc,

The machine can print on regular and irregular sizes. Prints them edge
to edge. We tested dibond printing with a length of 4m and definitely
longer materials for textile coffers. There is also no problem with
printing elements the size of a business card.

Machine equipment:
– CMYK LC LM + white printing system – we are currently using
alternative inks, which are much cheaper and much more stable than the
originals. We will transfer additionally the inks we have at the
machine’s price – cost several thousand euros
– rip CALDERA + optional Grand Cut plugin enabling automatic
generation of bleeds (traps), cutting lines and files for roller and
flat cutting plotters such as: summa f, summa d, summa s, roland,
mutoh, graphtec, zund, kongsberg and others
– front and rear roller tables
– additional stands facilitating roll-to-roll printing

In December, we replaced the encoder. What is more, in 2019, we
replaced four heads (their damage was caused by a flaw on the dibond,
the cost of replacement was covered by plotter’s insurance).
