Epson launches new commercial and industrial printers

Epson unveils eight new commercial and industrial printer models as part of its mid term growth strategy to 2015.

There are a total of eight new printer models:  three that consist the Epson SureColor S series, three for the SureColor T series, and Single Roll and Dual Rolls models of the Epson SureLab SL-D3000.

SureColor SC-S30670

The Epson SureColor S series is composed of three signage printers that come in 64-inch wide format and make use of Epson UltraChrome GS2 and GSX ink sets. The Epson SureColor SC-S30670 is a four-ink, single print head signage printer highlighted as having the “lowest total cost of ownership.”

The Epson SureColor SC-S50670, meanwhile, focuses on the speed of production, as it can print up to 53.2m 2 per second. High quality is the main selling point of the last printer in the S series—the Epson SureColor SC-S70670. This printer features a dual print head and uses Epson’s UltraChrome GSX 10-color ink set that supports white and metallic ink for the widest color gamut.

Next in line is the Epson SureColor T series, whose printer models are primarily used for technical/computer aided design (CAD) printing. The three printers in this line make use of Epson UltraChrome XD ink. The piezoelectric-based inkjet print head gives the T series models a maximum resolution of 2880 x 1440dpi. The T series also features Epson’s Variable-size Droplet Technology (VSDT) that ejects ink droplets in multiple sizes to enhance clarity and bring out fine details in images. Below are the printer models in the T series:

Finally, there’s the SureLab SL-D3000—Epson’s first photo dry lab system—which comes in Single Roll and Dual Roll models. It features a printing resolution of up to 1440 x 1440dpi, and a six-color ink set. Epson claims that the SureLab SL-D3000 is able to yield vivid printouts with “excellent black density.”

All the new printer models wield Epson’s Micro Piezo print head technology, which is said to be more durable than ordinary print heads and can produce high-quality output at a higher speed. Epson states that Micro Piezo print heads are also more energy efficient as they use less power than thermal inkjet print heads.
