Though it can be difficult to drum up excitement for the release of a new printer, LG have managed just that with the Machjet LPP6010N. The “world’s fastest” desktop printer, it’s twice as fast as traditional A4 home dektop printers, printing at a approximately half the cost per-page to boot too.
Developed by Memjet and first shown off at CES 2011, LG have now got onboard to manufature and distribute the tech.
Using Page Straight Array (PSA) technology that has over 70,000 ink nozzles on a single printhead (17 times the nozzle density of a regular inkjet) it’s capable of pumping out 60 A4 full colour prints a minute. For those incapable of basic maths, that’s a sheet every single second.
Don’t believe those speeds are possible? Just check it out in the video below, courtesy of UberGizmo:
It’s energy-conscious too, using just 32W compared to the average 600W used by similar printers.
“LG prides itself on launching truly innovative products and is pleased to bring the world’s fastest A4 colour desktop printers powered by Memjet’s game-changing printing technology to the Korean market,” said Sihwan Park, vice president of LG Electronics’ monitors and printers business unit.
“The Machjet delivers completely new levels of colour performance and affordability and uses significantly less energy versus laser printers.”
No pricing or release date yet, but we’ll let you know as details trickle in.
