Craig Heckenberg, Epson Australia business manager for professional graphics, says that the new printer has all the hallmarks of being a winner for the company.
“We’re confident the Epson Stylus Pro 4000 will be the most popular and best selling Stylus Pro printer yet,” says Heckenberg.
The Stylus Pro 4000 utilises Epson’s seven-colour UltraChrome ink technology and features a new eight-channel print head that automatically switches between Matte Black and Photo Black inks for optimum print quality on a greater range of media surfaces. It features cyan, magenta, yellow, light cyan, light magenta, light black and either matte black or photo black.
The UltraChrome Ink range is water resistant and has lightfastness ratings for colour images of more than 75 years, and greater than 100 years for black and white prints, on recommended Epson papers displayed under non-UV glass. When displayed under UV-protected glass, colour lightfastness is rated at more than 100 years for all Epson’s leading professional papers. The quick drying nature of UltraChrome Ink also makes it possible to handle prints the moment they come off the printer.
Epson says the Stylus Pro 4000 is the first Epson desktop printer to incorporate large format media handling functions, with its proprietary large format A2 wide print engine design supporting roll, automatic cut sheet and manual cut sheet. It has a built-in automatic cut sheet paper tray with a capacity of up-to 250 sheets of plain paper, and accepts media up to 1.5mm thick.
