The addition of Gray ink enables smooth tones and fine gradation while the inclusion of Matte and Photo Black ink (with dedicated lines for each) facilitate operation with a wider range of media. Ink ships in a range of cartridge sizes to suit different production and cost-per-print requirements. Prints dry almost instantly to be water and scratch resistant.

This printer accepts single-sheet and roll-based stocks ranging from standard bond to premium presentation paper and even board. It is extremely cost-effective to run with low power consumption, low ink consumption and low wastage. Designed for business and retail environments, it features a small footprint and flat top.

Images are extremely durable while colour is predictable and consistent. Prints exit almost dry with a finish that is resistant to damage through scratching and moisture exposure. The ink set incorporates both a photo and matte black to support imaging on a wide range of media types

 

Economic to Run with Flexible Media Support
The SureColor P8560D supports sheet sizes up to B0 and roll media up to 44-inch (1118mm) wide. It features a low running cost with reduced ink consumption and ultra-low power consumption. Ink cartridges can be ordered individually in a choice of 350ml or 700ml sizes to suit different operational and costs per print requirements. Wastage is minimised through the implementation of dedicated PK/MK ink lines, inkless-nozzle status monitoring and automatic nozzle replacement/masking. Consumable replacement is easy with everything loading from the front

 


The SC-P8560D has been designed to accept a wide range of roll and single sheet media. It supports stock as light as 80gsm and has a special straight path for heavy media including board. It will print borderless and features a high-speed auto-cutter that will cut an A1 sheet in just 2 seconds. Roll media is loaded automatically once placed on the spindle and the printer will automatically change between rolls when one runs out or an alternative type/size is selected. For users who work with a range of media, additional spindles can be ordered and the stock preloaded for rapid interchange. An inbuilt Roll Media Barcode Management system tracks consumption and facilitates automatic re-configuration upon loading. The second roll can be configured as an Auto Take Up for roll to roll production and there is an optional Flat Stacker that supports common sheet formats with sufficient capacity for up to 2 rolls of output.1

The large 4.3" LCD touchscreen makes operation simple and for those who like to monitor their work the top panel incorporates a viewing panel with a lit platen. An integrated media bin ensures prints don’t get damaged on exit and is a pull-out drop-down design that is easy to deploy and stow. High-speed hardware based Adobe Postscript enables files to be printed directly from a USB key or from the desktop using a simple 'drag-n-drop' process with configurable settings. If operation involves extremely large files or workgroups then an optional 960GB SSD is recommended to improve efficiency while allowing for job spooling and direct instant reprints.1 2
