Epson’s launch of five wide-format machines marks the first commercial printers using its new PrecisionCore inkjet heads with an upgrade for its long-running SureColor T series.
The company says the new machines will suit printers in the point-of-sale, technical and design markets with applications from posters to technical drawings, mapping, and presentation graphics.

Epson Australia business general manager Craig Heckenberg says the new models are ‘a significant step up’ from the previous range and offers improvements from every angle.
“The range not only offers high performance, printing an A1 page in as little as 28 seconds, but matches this with high durability,” he says.
“This is an impressive range of printers that provide business, corporate and government users with superior output, higher productivity, simple and flexible operation, reduced maintenance and lower running costs.”
The range consists of the 24” SureColor T3200, 36” SureColor T5200, 36” Dual-Roll SureColor T5200D, 44” SureColor T7200 and 44” Dual-Roll SureColor T7200D.
Epson says the series offers printers a faster processor with improved quality, a quieter auto cutter and superior sheet media support with a straight through paper path capable of handling board up to 1.5mm.
Heckenberg says the launch has been a ‘great success’ and several units already sold.
“The initial reaction from the market has been very positive,” he says.
Epson says the next PrecisionCore-fitted launch will be an update to the mini desktop version of its SureLab photo printer.
