Epson demonstrates digital printer versatility at IPEX 2014
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Epson will showcase its latest range of inkjet large format, dye-sublimation, direct-to-garment, label and proofing printers, and the digital label press at IPEX 2014 (24th-29th March, ExCel, London). Visitors to the Epson booth (S1-F089) will be able to browse a wide range of new products on show for a wide range of applications spanning proofing, signage, POS, car wraps, dcor, textiles for soft signage and apparel, promo products, t-shirts and quality labels.
Over the last two years Epson has launched several new-generation large format SureColor inkjet printers designed to deliver maximum quality, productivity, flexibility and low Total Cost of Ownership. These printers will be demonstrated together at IPEX and include: three 64-inch SureColor SC-S wide format printers; two SureColor SC-F dye-sublimation printers (44 and 64-inch), and the new SureColor SC-F direct-to-garment t-shirt printer.
Following its highly successful appearance at Labelexpo, Epson will also be showing the versatile SurePress L-4033AW digital label press with white ink, and demonstrating colour managed proofing on its flexible Stylus Pro wide format printer.
Signage & Dcor A variety of high-impact, high-quality and durable POS, signage, and wallpaper graphics will be printed by three 64-inch SureColor SC-S printer models offering a choice of productivities and from 4-10 colours including white and metallic. These SureColor printers will demonstrate cost-effective, high-speed productivity printing onto a range of materials, including vinyl, window film and recyclable stock.
Textile and t-shirts On the booth Epson will display apparel, soft signage and t-shirts, alongside customised giftware, gadgets and dcor items to demonstrate the flexibility of the SureColor SC-F6000 and SC-F7000 dye sublimation printers, and the SureColor SC-F2000 direct-to-garment printer. These are the first printers in this sector in which every component, from ink and printhead, to printer chassis and optional accessories, are all designed and manufactured by one company. As a result, quality, performance and reliability are all optimised for maximum productive uptime and profit. These printers use Epson UltraChrome ink, with specially-developed new dye-sublimation and aqueous pigment ink formulations, which produce outstanding images with vibrant colours, intense blacks, sharp contours and smooth gradations.
Online t-shirt shops, production t-shirt printers and copyshops will benefit from the SC-F2000s revenue-generating features. Epson will demonstrate how users can configure the system to suit their needs by choosing from two sets of CMYK ink for white garments or CMYK with up to four white inks for coloured garments. Combined with high performance, low maintenance and running costs, it enables businesses to offer a new t-shirt design and print service.
Dye sublimation is ideal for printing and transferring scratch-resistant, photographic quality images onto a wide range of polyester-coated substrates which are difficult to print onto directly e.g. aluminium, steel, plastics, MDF boards, ceramic tiles, etc. As a result print service providers can not only expand their range of products, but also develop new creative value-added applications.
Labels Epson will show how exceptional print quality and accurate colour reproduction on a wide variety of standard label substrates can be achieved with the SurePress L-4033AW 7-colour, inkjet digital label press with white ink. High-quality, short-run label printing is made easier and more efficient, even on clear and metallic substrates, which enables label converters and commercial printers the opportunity to expand their service offering and improve profitability.
Phil McMullin, UK Sales Manager, ProGraphics, Epson UK says: IPEX 2014 is an ideal opportunity for Epson to showcase our latest range of large format, dye-sublimation, direct-to-garment, label and digital proofing printers. There will be something for everyone and visitors to the stand will be inspired by the diverse range of new products on show for a wide range of applications.
