Is it possible to print double-sided with HP DesignJet T120?

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi guys, I was wondering if it's possible to print double-sided if the paper size is bigger than the A3 tray and has to be fitted by the paper roll slot. I'm printing some prototypes for A2 instructions for use, which is black and white, mostly text, and I'm not pretty sure if there is any way to do the roll printing then cut it and put it back to print the other side. Thank you in advance. Have a good day.

I dont' see any reason why not.  As long as you can get the alignment so the end look is what you want.

 

We used a Designjet 5000 60" printer to print fake newspapers on newsprint paper for stage use.  We would print one side, roll it onto a roll and feed it back into the printer.  It came out fine.  Well, it looked good from where the audience was sitting anyway.

 

So I don't see any reason why you can't try it.  You may want to go a little lighter on the ink so you don't have too much bleed through.  Try a small sample before doing the whole project?

Print second side through the sheet feed assembly.

I can't use the sheet tray because I'm printing through the paper roll

Design jet printer doesn't comes with duplex feature. 

It is also not advisable to print A1 and A2 both the sides. It might create paper pickup and sometime PQ issues for next print.
