Epson has announced the Middle East launch of the SureColor SC-S30610, a 64-inch (162.5cm), four-colour (CMYK), eco-solvent roll-fed printer, that builds on the success of Epson’s wide-format printer range for signage and POS applications.
Khalil El-Dalu, GM, Epson Middle East, said, “With the Middle East’s printing and signage market growing rapidly in recent years, buoyed by the thriving exhibitions and events industry, we expect the SC-S30610 to generate significant interest here. Apart from its high performance and economical functioning, the SC-S30610 is fast and easy to set up. 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.”
Moreover, Epson’s precision engineering and proven Micro Piezo printhead technology ensure continuous and trouble-free operation, minimising maintenance and lost production time, the company said.
According to Epson, it has developed a new ink – Epson UltraChrome GS2 – designed to work perfectly with the SC-S30610 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-S30610 to be used in an office environment, representatives said.
Further, costs and environmental impact are reduced with the printer’s Energy Star qualified power efficiency, the company added.
