HP Designjet Z6600 Production Printer
Wide Format printers are not shipped via UPS; consequently if your location does not have a delivery dock or is a residence; an additional $50 Lift Gate charge will be applied to your order. A special truck with a lift gate is required to unload the printer to your curb.
Designed for speed and productivity
- The DesignJet Z6600 has print speeds as fast as 1500 ft2/hr (140 m2/hr) in fast mode and 212 ft2/hr
(20 m2/hr) in high-quality mode
- Cut turnaround times and effortlessly handle large data loads thanks
to high file-processing power
- Create quality prints at top speed with HP Double Swath Technology and the HP Optical Media Advance Sensor
- Confidently print unattended thanks to long media Rolls, 775-ml HP ink cartridges, and a built-in take-up reel
High-impact image quality
- Achieve smooth color tones thanks to HP Multi-dimensional Smart
Drop Placement Technology
- Create unique black-and-white prints—three shades of black HP ink
deliver rich density and smooth transitions

The HP Designjet printing system
The HP Designjet Z6600 Printer turns orders in record time with as it's the fastest 60-inch production graphics printer. Efficiently produce outstanding color and black-and-white prints with 6 HP Vivid Photo Inks. Rely on powerful performance from an easy-to-use printer.
HP Double Swath Technology provides breakthrough speed and performance. The HP Designjet Z6600 Production Printer includes two sets of three HP 771 and HP 773 Designjet Printheads, creating a wide print swath—up to 1.67 inches/42.5 mm—and a high firing frequency to deliver prints with amazing speed. Six bi-color printheads feature 1,056 nozzles per color, 1200 nozzles per inch, and small drop volumes for top photo quality. The HP Optical Media Advance Sensor (OMAS) allows you to print at top speeds and still get great output results. This breakthrough technology improves paper-advance control and accuracy, so the printer can print at higher speeds across multiple environmental conditions without impairing image quality.
Efficient and unattended operation
Gain efficient operation using a six-ink printing system with an optimized configuration. Print
from your favorite design applications or through third-party RIPs. Ensure image quality and
reduce cleaning and waste using automatic drop detection and intelligent masking.
The HP Multi-dimensional Smart Drop Placement Technology enables the highest quality
possible for a 6-ink system while guarding against potential media-feed or drop-placement
The optimal combination of inks for each RGB or CMYK pixel is obtained using a dithering
algorithm, which depends on the pixel tone rather than each individual color. Printed results
are then optimized in terms of color gamut, smooth color transitions, and minimal image
grain. After this step, the resulting image resolution is expanded to control more precisely each
drop placement and to spread drops between the different passes using frequency-analysis
methods that minimize ink-media interactions (dot visibility, coalescence, bleeding, etc.) and
artifacts related to dot-placement errors.
Intelligent masking saves time, ink, and media by reducing reprints and extending printhead
life. In multi-pass print modes, dots in every scan row can be printed by different physical
nozzles on different passes.
Failing nozzles are identified by the embedded Optical Drop Detector. These are then flagged
“do not use” because of misdirected drops, weak drops (low drop weight or drop velocity),
or non-operation. Only “good” nozzles are used at each print location so banding and image
quality defects are eliminated. After printing, the printer automatically performs recovery
routines to restore failed nozzles during printhead service station cycles, saving time, ink, and
the hassle of manual user interventions.
HP Vivid Photo Inks
Create impressive long–lasting images in color and black-and white with rich optical density and
smooth transitions using HP Vivid Photo Inks. Print on many substrates to deliver a wide range
of jobs such as posters, canvas prints, and POP signs. HP Designjet printheads are designed
together with HP Vivid Photo inks to provide precise, accurate placement of smaller drops and
high speed. Each printhead prints two colors of ink with 1,056 nozzles per color.
