This printer stands tall in compact print businesses, where efficiency and adaptability are non-negotiable. It might be the ingenious, cost-effective white ink printing solution you've been waiting for, tailored to elevate your printing capabilities while keeping your costs in check.
Picture this: "effortlessly producing a dazzling array of signage, graphics, and décor prints with the HP Latex 630 W. Its adaptability sets it apart, offering not just affordability but also a stunning colour palette and the industry's finest white ink. Anyone looking to add a versatile, cost-effective white printing solution to their repertoire can bid farewell to maintenance woes.

Dive into Papergraphics' test drive and review below: the HP Latex 630 W could be the go-to choice for smaller print shops seeking a high-quality white ink print solution without breaking the bank!
Papergraphics test drive of the HP Latex 630 W printer.
Before HP Launched their new Latex 630 Printer series, Graham and Dean, two of our technical engineers, undertook a four-week test drive of the new HP Latex 630 W, putting it through its paces and comparing its capabilities with the 4th generation Latex 700W and 800W printers.
The feedback has certainly been positive, especially concerning the accessible nature of this new machine — below are some of Graham's comments:
"I'd consider the L630 an entry-level machine, typically aimed at smaller print shops with maybe a handful of staff, but wanting a straightforward machine that can do it all—or at least do as much as possible. It's probably HP's most affordable option yet for those after the whitest white ink out there, and it has several design features that make it an easy-to-use printer for day-to-day printers."
The Papergraphics tech wizards were also highly complementary towards some of the time and effort-saving features of this new machine.
"The L630 has a spindle-less design, and by taking the heavy spindle system out, HP has now made it quick and easy to switch between media. This is perfect for the intended audience and can help save time and effort changing media for those with many jobs involving different media rolls. Another significant change we noticed in the L630 is in the media sensor. Previously an OMAS camera system was used, but it wasn't always one hundred percent accurate, especially with more varied media backings. Instead, this new machine has a roller wheel system with a built-in encoder, so it can record and log details as it feeds the media, making tiled applications and repeatable lengths far more consistent and accurate."
If you're curious about where HP made cost savings — Dean explains:
"Cost saving has been primarily done by removing a spectrophotometer usually found in HP's higher-production Latex printer models such as the Latex 700 & 800W. The Latex 630 W still has a line sensor and density measurer, but you won't be able to create ICC profiles with this particular printer."
"However, this isn't an issue if you're a Papergraphics customer, as we can use an external spectrophotometer to create media profiles for you to use with your L630 free of charge when you buy our print media."

- The standout feature on the HP Latex 630 Printer series is, without doubt, printing with white Latex ink on these new machines.
- The white Latex ink system requires minimal maintenance compared to UV and Solvent machines.
- The new generation ink cures at a cooler temperature. A big pro!
- The printer has been simplified to make it the perfect fit for print shops – with features such as a spindle-less design and a 13amp power socket.
- Removing the spectrophotometer means you can't create your own profiles – but if you're a Papergraphics customer, we're on hand to help make them for you.
- As with other 4th Generation Latex machines, not all surfaces are perfect for this ink. We have particularly noticed this with some of our fantastic Digimura wallcoverings – the ink can leave a sticky finish on the surface.
- However, we have found that our Digimura Non-woven range works well with 4th gen ink. Please get in touch if you want to hear more about our findings, though!
