Epson said the SC-V7000 has been designed to meet the needs of today’s signage businesses with flexible high-quality production and a reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).
It will print on a wide range of substrates including paper, film, Coreflute, vinyl, canvas, aluminium and acrylic. It produces image quality to suit the most exacting applications including signage, POS/POP, premium packaging, décor, custom cabinetry and fine art.
The printer incorporates eight Epson MicroPiezo printheads. Each head features 1,440 microfine nozzles with variable size dots as small as 4 pl. Working in conjunction with a new 10 colour Ultrachrome UV ink set, it will produce images with a very wide gamut and fine gradation. White and Varnish can even be applied as spot colours for enhanced detail and finish.
The SC-V7000 offers a 1.25m x 2.5m print area that supports media up to 80 mm thick and 50 kg/m2. It features a vacuum system with four independently adjustable zones for flexible operation.
Integrated layout pins and a height sensor on the head carriage enable easy media setting while an ioniser ensures reliable and consistent output. The print heads are mounted in a staggered array that enables up to three layers to be applied in a single pass (White + Colour + Varnish).
It is also supplied complete with Epson Edge Print RIP software and Flatbed Controller software. It can be managed from the desktop using Epson Edge Dashboard and supports Epson’s new Cloud Solution PORT service.
The SureColor V7000 is available for purchase via authorised Epson resellers in Australia and New Zealand now.
