Epson America has added two new Epson SureColor next generation 64-inch printers to its SureColor line.
The SureColor S50670 and S70670, joins the SureColor S30670 64-inch solvent printer in Epson’s large format lineup. All three are built on a new print engine and use the Epson MicroPiezo TFP print head to offer quality, performance and value to the signage, vehicle graphics and fine arts markets.
The SureColor S50670 offers print/draft speeds of 980 square foot an hour and the SureColor S70670 offers production speeds of 225 square foot an hour.
The SureColor S-Series print engine introduces convenience features that automate previously time-consuming processes such as nozzle checks, media feed adjustments and tensioning, and complicated media and print head alignments.
The MicroPiezo TFP Print Head is a one-inch wide, high performance print head with 360 nozzles per channel capable of handling ten separate ink channels, low vibration meniscus control for highly accurate dot shape and placement and ink repelling coating for reduced nozzle clogging. Both the SureColor S50670 and S70670 leverage two print heads.
Other features include:
- UltraChrome GS2 and UltraChrome GSX: Exclusive Epson ink technologies that offer virtually odorless printing and do not contain Nickel (Ni) compounds, reducing the impact on the environment.
- Take-up Reel System: for unattended production of large print runs supporting both wind-in or wind-out.
- High Capacity Ink System: individual ink cartridges up to 700 ml enable users to avoid production downtime and maximize profitability; the S50670 offers 1400 ml of installed ink per color.
- Included ONYX RIP SoftwareMedia Heater and High-Speed Dryer
The two new printers will be available in Fall 2012 through authorized Epson Professional Imaging resellers for a list price of $25,995 each.
