Epson has introduced its most advanced SureColor S-Series roll-to-roll solvent printers to date – the 64-inch production S40600, S60600 and S80600

Designed and manufactured by Epson, the SureColor S-Series feature Epson UltraChrome GS3 solvent inks for outstanding print quality, durability, and media compatibility, plus improved drying times to drive productivity. The flagship SureColor S80600 also incorporates an all new GS3 red ink to produce vivid output with an expansive color gamut and good color vibrancy, plus optional white or silver ink, for best-in-class photographic output quality. When combined with the all new precision media feeding system and high performance dual-array PrecisionCore TFP printhead, the SureColor S-Series redefines the price-performance equation, producing high-quality, sellable output at impressive production speeds.

SureColor S-Series
The SureColor S-Series 64-inch solvent printers introduce several new features which enhance the productivity, reliability and quality of signage imaging, including Epson UltraChrome GS3 Solvent Ink. Newly formulated fast-drying UltraChrome GS3 Ink delivers outstanding print quality, durability, and superior media compatibility than previous SureColor S-Series printers. The SureColor S80600 also incorporates a new red solvent ink for an expanded color gamut, plus optional white or silver ink for best-in-class photographic output quality. Individual 700 ml ink cartridges enable users to avoid production downtimes and maximize profitability. The SureColor S-Series printers are designed exclusively for use with Epson ink cartridges.

The new Epson dual-array PrecisionCore TFP printhead offers high performance and consistency, along with variable size ink droplet technology for remarkable photographic print quality. Moreover,  new hardware enhancements offer greater resistance to head strikes and a new Epson Precision Dot screening technology provides for output with less visible banding, even at the fastest of production print speeds.

New precision media feeding system
Robust motorized roll-to-roll media handling with Automatic Tension Control technology provides extremely accurate media feed and take-up. Forty individual media rollers with five independent pinch rollers offer superior media skew control, drastically reducing printhead strikes. And, an innovative media path optimized for consistent media feed enables true unattended roll-to-roll printing.

Simple operation and maintenance offer automatic media alignment and set-up will allow for faster switching between media types. Automatic printhead cleaning – including a newly-developed fabric printhead wiper system – significantly reducing the need for manual printhead maintenance. Air circulation system keeps the printhead cleaner for extended performance in high production environments. And, for a complete workflow solution, Epson includes a full copy of Onyx GamaPrint Pro with free profile installation for the most popular signage media types. The Epson SureColor S40600 and S60600 will be available in the first quarter of 2016, and the SureColor S80600 will be available in April 2016 through authorized Epson Professional Imaging resellers.

Packaging South Asia is the cooperating media partner for drupa 2016 which is scheduled to be held from 31 May to 10 June at Dusseldorf, Germany.
