Kind to the planet, Easy on the wallet

The SC-SS30600 is all about being environmentally conscious. It produces no harmful VOC’s so no external dryers, special ventilation or air purification systems are required. It only uses nickel free inks and has a low (Energy star rated) power consumption while the advanced Epson Micro Piezo TFP print head delivers accurate dot placement and optimised ink usage, significantly reducing operating costs.

Superior quality and performance

The SC-S30600 is packed with various time-saving features such as automated nozzle checks, media feed adjustments, media tensioning and print head alignments, enabling unattended operation during long print runs. Using Epson’s Micro Piezo TFP print technology, a superior image quality of 1440 x 1440dpi (16pass quality) is achieved at print speeds from 7.3m2/hour up to 29.4m2/hour (depending on mode). Users also benefit from the exclusive Epson UltraChrome GS2 ink technology which includes a newly formulated yellow ink and is able to produce prints with up to three years of outdoor durability without lamination.

Increased application possibilities

Due to the superior image quality of the SC-S30600, print business owners will be able to enter the profitable market of high end imaging while simultaneously enhancing their service capabilities by offering their customers better prints at a shorter turnaround. The ability to print on virtually any standard coated and uncoated media make the SC-S30600 the ideal printing solution for a wide range of commercial or fine art printing applications such as vinyl signs, banners, car wraps, in- or outdoor signage, interior decoration, retail signage, canvas prints and more.

Improved Media handling

Epson’s SC-S30600 is equipped with a efficient take-in and Take-up Reel system (supporting wind-in and wind-out) and a manual EPSON LiftAssist which allows for easy loading and unloading of heavy roll media, enabling users to quickly and effortlessly switch media in between print jobs.
