PRODUCT News Epson launches SureColor SC-S30600 printer


Epson builds on the success of its wide-format printer range for signage and POS applications with the SureColor SC-S30600. A 64-inch (162.6cm), four-colour (CMYK), roll-fed printer, the SC-S30600 sets a new price/performance ratio in this highly competitive sector. Designed from the ground up to offer


efficient and environmentally-friendly production at the lowest total cost of owner- ship, the SC-S30600 enables print firms, signmakers, digital copy shops and repro centres to expand their service offering. The SC-S30600 can produce


everything from posters, signs, banners, backlit panels and POS materials to vehicle wraps, interior decorations and exhibition displays. A wide range of roll media is supported, allowing users to print reliably and cost-effectively on vinyl, PVC and clear film, photographic paper and a range of popular banner substrates. Richard Barrow, Senior Product


Manager at Epson Europe, says: “Setting up the SC-S30600 is fast and easy. Loading heavy media rolls, usually a two-person job, can be handled by one operator with ease thanks to our unique jack. And media tensioning, traditionally only accessible from the front of the printer, is controllable from both front and rear, so operators don’t waste time going back and forth. This reduces set-up time and maximises productivity.” Epson’s precision engineering and proven Micro Piezo


printhead technology ensure continuous and trouble-free operation, minimising maintenance and lost production time. High-volume workloads are handled with ease, with print speeds from 7.3 to 29.4 sqm/hour depending on printing mode; the former being typical for indoor poster use and the latter for outdoor banner applications. There is also a maximum quality mode for the most demanding close inspection work, which uses the printer’s full resolution of 1440 x 1440dpi.


The Epson SureColor SC-S30600. Epson has developed a new ink – Epson UltraChrome GS2


– designed to work perfectly with the SC-S30600 and Epson’s new generation of TFP printheads. UltraChrome GS2 builds on the strengths of UltraChrome GS (used in the Epson Stylus Pro GS6000) with a new yellow formulation that is lightfast for longer. UltraChrome GS2 is odourless, nickel-free and requires no special ventilation, allowing the SC-S30600 to be used in an office environment. Costs and environmental impact are reduced with the printer’s Energy Star-qualified power efficiency. The Epson SureColor SC-S30600 will be demonstrated


on the Epson booth (Stand E70) for the first time in the UK at Sign & Digital.


The printer is available from March 2012, priced at £11,995. For further information visit www.epson.com
