TurboJet Overview
HP Scitex TJ8600 is based on Scitex solvent
Turbojet platform
First introduced in 2006 as TJ8500 with maximum
print speed of up to 400 sqm / hr
Since then, roll to roll printers speed has improved
with clear advantage of versatility of applications
The information in this presentation is based also
on customers that replaced TJ8600 with

TJ8600 - Print Speed and Printer utilization
Spec Maximum print speed is 480 sqm / hr
This speed is calculated on full drum diameter of 3.7m and
width 1.6m
Practically – the drum is not utilized for it full diameter, only
60-70%
Meaning maximum print speed is 288 – 336 sqm / hr
• UViStar Pro 8 maximum speed is 353 sqm
The illustration bellow demonstrates file size of 1.6m x 2.4
