Epson will demonstrate the SureColor SC-S30600 for the first time in the UK at Sign & Digital UK 2012 (Stand E70, NEC, Birmingham 27th-29th March 2012). The new printer will be shown alongside Epson’s current range of roll-fed large-format inkjet printers including the 64-inch, 8-colour Stylus Pro GS6000, the Stylus Pro 11880 and the 44-inch Stylus Pro 9700.
The new 64-inch SureColor SC-S30600 is a four-colour printer which has been designed from the ground up to offer efficient and environmentally-friendly signage print production. This new large -format printer handles high-volume workloads with ease, with print speeds from 7.3 to 29.4m2/hour depending on printing mode, whilst offering a very low total cost of ownership.
The popular Stylus Pro GS6000 has a maximum print resolution of 1440dpi and is capable of printing 25.2m²/h (720x360dpi). Driven by Epson’s passion for extreme colour gamut and photographic print quality, the printer uses the high-performance UltraChrome™ GS ink technology, an 8-colour ink set (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black, Light Cyan, Light Magenta + Orange and Green) which requires no additional ventilation during production.
Epson’s 44in Stylus Pro 9700 is optimised to work with a five colour UltraChrome Vivid Magenta aqueous ink set, incorporating cyan, vivid magenta, yellow, photo-black and matte-black. Vivid Magenta technology gives a wider colour gamut for enhanced colour accuracy. Particularly noticeable on blues, magentas, reds and oranges, prints have a more natural and life-like appearance. For convenience, added productivity and reduced costs, the printer automatically selects the optimum black ink – photo or matte – to match the media.
The 64in Stylus Pro 11880 has a maximum print speed of 35.4m²/h, yet the aqueous UltraChrome™ K3 VM inkset – incorporating Vivid Magenta – means it doesn’t compromise on quality and is economical to own. The Stylus Pro 11880’s speed and quality is down to Epson’s inkjet technology that pushes the limits of photo-quality imaging across a huge range of media including ultra smooth fine art paper, matte finish, gloss finish or rigid poster board for high quality cut sheet output.
Martin Johns, market development manager, Pro Graphics, Epson UK says, “The line-up of Epson wide format inkjet printers at Sign & Digital 2012 gives POS and signage companies the ability to select the best solution for their business. The combination of Epson engineering, advanced Micro Piezo printhead technology, wide choice of media, UltraChrome inks, ease of operation, and all round low cost of ownership deliver a powerful production tool that is opening up new value-added business opportunities for companies.”
