poster production

New 44-inch printer with integrated Ink Pack System added for high volume photo printing

Epson has announced the addition of three new 24-inch models to its existing 44-inch SureColor SC-P8500D large-format printer, designed for high-volume poster production and copy shops. Offering exceptional image quality, low running costs, small footprint and simple operation, the new products can print on a wide range of media types, including poster boards. Also announced, is a new easy to operate 44-inch fully integrated production printer with smart features and a six colour Ink Pack System. With the new additions, Epson now offers a rounded and comprehensive printing solution for businesses ranging from retail print stores and professional photography studios, to print and poster production labs.

The three new 24-inch (610mm) models - the SureColor SC-P6500E(single roll), SC-P6500D (dual roll with PostScript ) and SC-P6500DE(dual roll) and the 44-inch SureColor SC-P8500DL join the popular 44-inch (1117mm) SureColor SC-P8500D to form the SureColor SC-Px500 Series. Based on Epson’s breakthrough Micro TFP PrecisionCore technology, all products in the series use the company’s 6-colour UltraChrome Pro6 pigment inks, which now include an additional grey ink to broaden the colour gamut. The SC-P8500DL includes 1.6L built-in ink packs for high print runs of large format photos and posters. They deliver exceptional print quality, and feature an extremely compact design, smart features and easy operation. All products also offer the enhanced levels of security and device management required by its target segments.

Delivering high print speeds (up to 18m 2/hr) without loss of image quality, and with controls accessible via the front of the printers to simplify the user experience, the SC-Px500 series is designed to boost productivity. The products also feature a printhead that is protected from dust and particulates, reducing maintenance costs, while the 6-colour ink set also cuts running costs by using less ink, compared with other 8-colour models. To allow documents to be printed confidentially and securely in busy copy shop and retail environments, the printers offer enhanced IT and security features, which include NFC security protection, plus encrypted PIN and password-controlled access.

As ease of use is a key requirement, the SC-Px500 Series printers have been designed to be simple and intuitive to operate, through a customisable 4.3-inch touch panel positioned for easy access, while paper roll loading and unloading is also easy, thanks to an automatic drop-in mechanism.  Productivity is further enhanced through the Epson Cloud Solution PORT, which enables printer status to be checked remotely from a smartphone or tablet, while printer use and performance can be monitored via a Production Monitor with real-time updates to ensure high productivity and a rapid resolution of maintenance issues.

“With a compact, contemporary design, these 24-inch models are high-quality commercial printers which are perfect for photos and posters,” said Kristin Saus-Opuszynski, Manager, product management, Commercial and Industrial products at Epson Europe. “Combined with the 44-inch models, and the new SC-P8500DL, the SC-Px500 Series now offers an ideal solution for anyone in the photo and poster production sector.”
