New inkjet heads and printers from Epson
Friday, June 18, 2021
Epson has expanded its range of PrecisionCore printheads in response to “an accelerated shift” to digital printing in commercial and industrial markets, and has also announced two new wide-format printers.
The Japanese manufacturer said the new printheads would be released in the second half of its financial year.
The three new printheads include the 1,200dpi PrecisionCore D3000-A1R which offers ink circulation “at the nozzle level” for the first time.
“The three new products will help accelerate the transition to low-waste, low environmental impact digital printing of things such as textiles, packages, and decorations. They will also facilitate distributed printing, allowing items to be produced locally, and on-demand printing, meaning that printers only produce what they need, when they need it,” Epson stated.
The firm has also announced two new 1.12m-wide (44in) printers, which will be available in September.
The SC-T7700D targeted at point-of-sale and technical architecture and CAD applications, and the SC-P8500D for photo work.
The SC-T7700D uses the six-colour UltraChrome XD3 ink set with a new red ink, while the SC-P8500D’s six-colour UltraChrome Pro6 inks include a new grey ink as well as matt and photo black.
Epson described both devices as “slimline and unobtrusive” with dual-roll input, flat backs for space-efficiency, a handy flat top surface, and an easy-to-use user interface.
Pricing for the two machines starts at £4,475 for the SC-P8500D, rising to £4,644 for the SC-T7700D.
