HP Latex 115 vs 315


While all of HP’s Wide-Format Latex lineup (100/300/500 series printers) offer the same inks and print head technology, there are some important differences between the models that new users should be aware of. The 115 and the 315 are very common for new-to-the-industry printers, or for experienced printers without the need for high volume printing.

The HP Latex 115 and 315 are comparable in almost every aspect, but there are a few important differences. The first one is the size of the ink cartridges. While the inks themselves are the same, the HP 115 uses smaller cartridges than the HP 315 – the 115’s ink cartridges are 400mL whereas the 315’s are 775mL. The HP Latex 315 also has the OMAS sensor, which helps with skew alignment on media loading and also helps with skew tracking while printing. This is especially useful for larger jobs. And, speaking of larger jobs, the HP 315 enables the user to do “continuous printing”, minimizes the curing time between jobs that have the same print parameters.

Lastly, the HP 115 is an end-user installed printer, whereas the 315 is a HP Technician-installed printer. The 115 is easy to set up and there are online tutorials for the user to follow. When a customer purchases an HP 315, an HP tech will be on-site to install the printer and to walk the user through its features. Typically, this is a 2-day process.

 USCUTTER remains the first line of defense when troubleshooting the printer. If the printer requires more expertise (Break and Fix), We will direct the customer to the proper HP support team.
