HP Designjet Printers - Media Weight Specifications

Issue:
Media weight specifications on the HP DesignJet printers.
Solution
See below:
 note:
HP has received calls from customers, as a result of the statement found on page 2, paragraph 4, in the HP DesignJet 650C Setting Up For Plotting manual, which reads:
"For monochrome plots, your printer handles a wide variety of media."
No specs or limits are given, and prompts users to call HP. Please refer to the statements below for more information.
  • Color is tested and supported on the HP DesignJet 650C printer with only HP special bond.
  • The other HP DesignJet media (film, translucent, vellum, and regular bond) supports only monochrome.
  • The specs listed below have been tested for optimum performance. Our lab has put a lot of effort into determining these specs.
  • The upper and lower limits are only advisory not specs. It is better to be on the higher side, rather than lower, if unsure.
  • Ask the third-party supplier if they have tested the media, for use on HP DesignJet printer.
  • Try the media first to be sure that it works.
  • Variation in weights or composition, even if print quality is acceptable, can affect the accuracy.
