Epson SureColor T7760D
Visual Impact, held this year in Sydney, is an annual event that caters to the visual graphics industries to showcase the best in digital printing and signage and host a wide range of workshops, seminars and demonstrations. At this year’s show Epson’s theme is, “Say Yes to Success” as the company demonstrates that the more solutions you offer your clients, the more work you can take on. Epson will also be showing companies how they can reduce their equipment footprint in smaller spaces and exhibiting the breadth and flexibility of their waste-reducing print products and solutions.
Epson Australia MD, Craig Heckenberg, said, “Due to the impact of Covid-19, businesses have opted to bring more print back to Australia. As a result, and to help businesses embrace this change, we have further expanded our print range to provide a solution for any requirement. Epson are also striving to further reduce wastage and water requirements. For example, we are placing more emphasis on inherently more efficient digital print processes for natural and synthetic fibres alike. You will see a range of these products and solutions on show and demonstrated at Visual Impact 2023 in Sydney.”
Kicking off proceedings is the Epson SureColor T7760D, which combines high-speed production and flexible media handling in an extremely compact footprint. It is designed for companies who want to produce large-format colour drawings and posters in moderate to high volume. This model is particularly suited to construction, retail and print-4-pay applications.
Then the Epson SureColor S80660L will be showing why it was designed to produce durable images with maximum impact and format flexibility, quickly, easily, and at minimum cost. The S80660L suits any operation with a medium to high production volume and a structured workflow. It is compatible with wide range of media and suits applications including high-value large format photo imaging, PANTONE® certified POS and signage, back-lit displays and window decorations, wallpapers, surface finishes and décor.
On to Epson’s new resin range and the SureColor R5000L, which not only offers a low running cost, but also brings accurate and repeatable colour to a platform optimised for rapid job turnaround. The SureColor R5000L is designed to produce signage, décor and promotional material. It uses aqueous (water-based) ink that is similar to latex but formulated for enhanced scratch resistance and a lower curing temperature. Enhanced print durability is matched with enhanced mechanical reliability and a reduced running cost.
Leveraging Epson’s decades of colour and imaging expertise will be the Epson SureColor V7000 UV flatbed printer, which is powered by no less than eight PrecisionCore™ printheads and a new UltraChrome UV ink to deliver outstanding print quality and low cost of ownership on many types of media including paper, film, board, Corflute, vinyl, canvas, aluminium, timber and acrylic up to 80 mm thick.
Alongside these will be the Epson SureColor F6460 representing the company’s fourth generation 44″ model and featuring enhanced image quality with faster performance and a simpler operation. The F6460 has been made to suit a wide range of production applications from customised fabric and garments to quality décor and merchandise, premium hard and soft signage. It can be ordered in either a 4c or 6c configuration and uses convenient 1.6L ink pouches. Prints are made on paper which is transferred (sublimated) via a heat press onto material with a polyester base or polyester pre-treatment.
Epson will also be showing their latest solutions for direct-to-garment (DTG) and direct-to-film (DTF).
Joining the usual suspects from the Epson Australia team at the show this year will be Shuhei Sato – Epson Australia’s new Product Manager specialising in professional print solutions. Shuhei previously worked at Epson HQ in Japan and comes with a wealth of knowledge regarding global trends within the large format printing space.
