The latest addition to the SureColor SC-P series line-up, the 64-inch width SC-P20000, combines 'super-fast printing speeds with the same superior photo quality' as current SC-P models. According to Epson it is ideal for high volume production print environments who do not wish to compromise quality for productivity.
Designed for a range of businesses, the SC-P20000 is 'ideal' for those looking for a cost effective in-house production solution. The SC-P20000 can create high-quality, large-format POS; short-term outdoor and interior signage; exhibition & display graphics; promotional graphics and photographs. The printer comes with a permanent PrecisionCore MicroTFP printhead for producing results up to 2400 x 1200 dpi, even at the highest print speeds. This is along with high-precision media feed technology, including a newly developed camera-based paper feed stabiliser and media inductive roller system.
Martin Johns, product manager, Epson UK, said: "We understand that the market has been waiting a long time for the next generation of our highly popular Epson Stylus Pro 11880 and, with the SC-P20000, we have created a significantly superior successor. This printer combines new rapid printing speeds with the same high output quality that Epson customers have come to expect, while delivering a range of new features and enhanced usability."
The SC-P20000 includes a number of features to help ensure the most precise and reliable results, such as a new Epson UltraChrome Pro 10-colour inkset. Blacks will be deep and rich thanks to new high density photo and matte black inks. Better gradation with reduced graininess is achieved due to the inkset containing four shades of black ink, and Multi Size Droplet Technology (MSDT). A new printhead structure means fewer vibrations and more accurate ink droplets and dot placement.
During printing, a transparent printer cover window and roll cover window allows users to check the status of printing and remaining media. After printing has finished, the position of the printhead means that it can be cleaned by the user, along with the ink cap, to help save on maintenance costs.
User efficiency and workflow can be improved further with an optional Adobe post script module; while an optional HDD allows jobs to be reprinted directly from the printer panel, without the need for a PC.
The SureColor SC-P20000 is available from March 2016.
