In picture: The Epson SureColor R5000L
Epson’s theme at at this year’s Visual Impact Sydney show is ‘Your one stop signage shop’, with the company aiming to demonstrate and showcase multiple signage solutions on stand.
“Due to the impact of COVID-19, businesses have opted to bring more print back to Australia. As a result, and to help businesses embrace this change, we have further expanded our print range to provide a solution for any requirement,” Epson Australia managing director Craig Heckenberg said.
“Epson is also striving to further reduce wastage and water requirements. For example, we are placing more emphasis on inherently more efficient digital print processes for natural and synthetic fibres alike. You will see a range of these products and solutions on show and demonstrated at Visual Impact 2023 in Sydney.”
Joining the usual suspects from the Epson Australia team at the show this year will be Shuhei Sato –Epson Australia’s new product manager specialising in professional print solutions. Sato previously worked at Epson HQ in Japan and comes with a wealth of knowledge regarding global trends within the large format printing space.
The Epson SureColor T5760DM will be on display, combining high-speed production with automated loading and integrated large format scanning in an extremely compact footprint. It is designed for companies who want to produce large-format colour drawings and posters in moderate to high volume. This model is particularly suited to construction, education, retail and print-4-pay applications.
The Epson SureColor S80660L will show why it was designed to produce durable images with maximum impact and format flexibility, quickly, easily, and at minimum cost.
The S80660L suits any operation with a medium to high production volume and a structured workflow. It is compatible with wide range of media and suits applications including high-value large format photo imaging, Pantone-certified POS and signage, back-lit displays and window decorations, wallpapers, surface finishes and décor.
Also on display will be Epson’s new resin range and the SureColor R5000L (hero image), which not only offers a low running cost, but also brings accurate and repeatable colour to a platform optimised for rapid job turnaround.
The SureColor R5000L is designed to produce signage, décor and promotional material. It uses aqueous (water-based) ink that is similar to latex but formulated for enhanced scratch resistance and a lower curing temperature. Enhanced print durability is matched with enhanced mechanical reliability and a reduced running cost.
Leveraging Epson’s decades of colour and imaging expertise will be the Epson SureColor V7000 UV flatbed printer, which is powered by no less than eight PrecisionCore printheads and a new UltraChrome UV ink to deliver outstanding print quality and low cost of ownership on many types of media including paper, film, board, Corflute, vinyl, canvas, aluminium, timber and acrylic up to 80 mm thick.
Alongside these will be the Epson SureColor F6460, representing the company’s fourth generation 44-inch model and featuring enhanced image quality with faster performance and a simpler operation.
The F6460 has been made to suit a wide range of production applications from customised fabric and garments to quality décor and merchandise, premium hard and soft signage. It can be ordered in either a 4-colour or 6-colour version with a choice of colour sets and uses convenient 1.6L ink pouches. Prints are made on paper which is transferred (sublimated) via a heat press onto material with a polyester base or polyester pre-treatment.
Epson will also be showing its latest solutions for direct-to-garment (DTG) and direct-to-film (DTF) including a new model, the SureColour F2260.
Visual Impact will be held from 3-5 May at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park. To register, click here.
