October 2016

26-27 October 2016

SYDNEY, 19 October 2016 – On 26 and 27 October at Melbourne’s Eleven40 Studio, Epson will be presenting its inaugural 2016 Large Format Product Expo which will feature the company's complete range of solutions in signage, photography, proofing, production, dye sublimation, direct to garment and technical printing.

Kicking off proceedings will be a demonstration area dedicated to the Epson SureColor Signage range. Epson's latest generation Eco-Solvent printers have drawn acclaim for their outstanding print quality and ultra-low running costs. The new range features Epson PrecisionCore® head technology and a new UltraChrome™ ink set that delivers prints with unparalleled quality, brightness and colour gamut. The printers produce output that dries extraordinarily quickly to enable same-day job turnaround even when lamination is required. At the Expo Epson will be demonstrating the flagship 64" SureColor SC-S80600 that uses a 9- or 10-colour ink set to produce the widest colour gamut in its class and achieve between 96% and 98% PANTONE® coverage. It can be used with a wide range of media and is suitable for many applications including durable signage and POS displays, wall finishes, vehicle wraps, labels and decals.

Alongside the Signage range will be demo area number two highlighting the acclaimed SureColor Fabric range with demonstrations of the SC-F2000 direct to garment printer and the ultra-high speed SC-F9200 64" dual head roll to roll dye sublimation printer that delivers exceptional productivity at 57 m2/hr, sellable production modes and 12 litre continuous ink supply system for long production runs. The other offerings in the SureColor Fabric range are the SC-F6200 44" sheet cut dye sublimation printer with its high speed 30 m2/hr production, ease of operation and maintenance and suitability for low to high volume work, and the SC-F7200 64" single head roll to roll dye sublimation printer that also boasts high speed 30m2/hr production, reduced running costs and a 6 litre continuous ink supply system for cost effective production printing.

The third demo area will highlight Epson solutions for premium photo, fine art, poster and graphics production, and proofing and packaging design applications. The new SureColor SC-P7070 and SC-P9070 proofing and packaging printers support a wide range of standard and specialist media in roll and sheet formats and feature a PrecisionCore® Thin Film printhead (TFP) with Variable Sized Droplet Technology™ (VSDT) that enables the output of images in high resolution with superior fidelity and tonal gradation. Both printers also use Epson's latest UltraChrome™ HDX all-pigment aqueous ink for accurate colour with an enhanced gamut, Dmax and image durability. The printers have a 10-colour ink configuration with two levels of black, a choice of a third black or alternative violet ink for outstanding colour and B&W prints with up to 99% PANTONE® coverage.

The Epson SureColor Production range covers the production poster and graphics segment and will be well represented by the new SureColor SC-P10070, which delivers a high speed, cost effective and flexible solution for printing high quality colour and premium black-and-white images in a wide format. With a 9-colour ink set including four levels of black, integrated high-speed auto cutter and options including automatic take-up unit (ATU), 320GB HDD and high-speed Postscript module, the SureColor SC-P10070 produces durable, ultra-high resolution output with a platform that has proven dependability and is easy to maintain.

The SC-P800 combines advanced UltraChrome™ HD pigment ink with Epson's innovative MicroPiezo® print head to enable gallery-quality black-and-white output as well as exhibition quality colour prints complete with breathtaking blues and violets. It sets a very high benchmark in terms of quality and flexibility with an outstanding colour gamut, the highest D-max to date and super-high resolution prints on a wide variety of media types. Designed for professional photographers, graphic artists and designers, it features enhanced networking, easy media loading and optional roll media support. It ships complete with a set of starter inks and an advanced software package.

Still in the photo space are the SureLab SL-D700 and SureLab SL-D3000 commercial photo and photo merchandise printers, the former of which will be on display at the Expo. The SL-D700 is designed for low-medium volume production with simple and flexible operation. It features a TFP head that supports resolutions up to 1140 x 720 dpi using 6 colours and VSDT for output with an outstanding gamut range and precise, adjustable colour density. It is relatively light, requires minimal operation space and has low power consumption. It produces up to 545 prints per hour and supports print sizes up to 8" x 39" on a choice of Gloss, Lustre and Matte media using an advanced Epson UltraChrome™ ink set.

The final demo area belongs to the new Epson SureColor Technical range. This series is designed to address the needs of retail and business graphic printing. It uses a low cost 5-colour aqueous UltraChrome™ ink set to produce extremely cost-effective output on coated and uncoated stocks. Prints dry instantly and provide exceptional durability against abrasion and moisture damage. Available in 24", 36" and 44" Epson SureColor Technical printers can be ordered with an optional ATU as well as the same 320GB HDD/Postscript module offered with the Production range.
