Epson Canada is introducing its most advanced SureColor S-Series of wide-format 64-inch solvent inkjet printers for the signage, vehicle graphics and fine art reproduction markets. With new and improved features, the Epson SureColor S-Series of printers provides increased productivity through faster printing speeds and ink-drying times, reliability from their automated maintenance systems, and improved image quality from Epson’s UltraChrome GS3 solvent ink systems.

The new line-up includes the SureColor S40600 for the entry-level signage printer, the SureColor S60600, Epson’s most productive signage printer to date, and the SureColor S80600 for finely detailed photographic signage.

Epson also worked closely with both 3M and Avery to ensure that the new ink technology and media systems met their rigorous standards, resulting in support from both companies for their respective media performance warranties.

Features of the new Epson SureColor S-Series of printers includes:

  • Epson UltraChrome GS3 solvent ink, a newly formulated fast-drying ink that delivers outstanding print quality, durability and superior media compatibility. The SureColor S80600 Printer also incorporates a new red solvent ink for an expanded colour gamut, plus optional white or silver ink for “best-in-class photographic output quality.”
  • Same-day lamination. Epson’s fast-drying inks allow for final lamination only 6 hours after printing – an industry first, said the company.
  • New Epson Dual-Array PrecisionCore TFP Print Head. This new print head offers high performance and consistency, along with variable size ink droplet technology for “remarkable photographic print quality.”
  • Epson SureColor S80600 Printer.

    New precision media feeding system. Robust, motorized, roll-to-roll media handling with Automatic Tension Control technology provides accurate media feeding and take-up, enabling unattended roll-to-roll printing.

  • Simple operation and maintenance. Unlike most signage printers requiring maintenance once per day, Epson’s new SureColor S-Series of printers requires maintenance only once per month for most users. Automated maintenance systems allow for faster switching between media types, and a reduction in the need for manual print head maintenance.
