Epson Debuts SureColor T-Series Wide-Format Printers
Epson introduced a new generation of production-class SureColor T-Series wide-format printing solutions with an innovative, compact design. Six new SureColor T-Series 24-, 36- and 44-inch models are slated to launch later this year with the SureColor T7770D 44-inch dual roll printer available first.
Developed from the ground up, the all new SureColor T-Series models include Epson’s latest 2.64-inch PrecisionCore printhead which provides outstanding image quality while enabling higher-speed performance than previous generation models. The new, compact industrial design provides a small footprint for space-constrained production environments. The latest models also incorporate a number of new features that improve usability and streamline workflow and media handling, including Adobe Embedded Print Engine standard on most models, dual roll capability, a built-in take-up reel for roll-to-roll printing, complete front operation, easy automatic roll loading, and optional, foldable production stackers.
“In today’s production environments, we’ve seen a growing need for solutions that not only deliver fast speeds and functionality, but fit seamlessly into any shop or office, even if space is limited,” says Jacob Hardin, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “The T-Series line of printers is a focus for Epson with 13 models in the line already. The new additions deliver production-class performance in a small footprint and come equipped with powerful software to meet the needs of our customers. Built on decades of technology innovation, Epson designed the new SureColor T-Series production solutions to help today’s professionals improve workflows and streamline project delivery.”
The first available SureColor T7770D delivers fastest in class print speeds. Plus, it prints posters and POP displays at speeds over 300 sqft/hr and CAD and technical drawings at production-class speeds over 1400 sqft/hr.
