Wide format specialist Peak Digital is installing an Epson SureColour Solvent SC80600, with the family owned business saying it was after a printer that could match specific needs for colour quality.
The Melbourne based company says it was looking for environmentally friendly technology that could specialise in signage and décor.
Andrew Robertson, director at Peak Digital says, “We strive to deliver high quality printing, personalised service, competitive pricing and a fast turnaround but the emphasis is on quality. Peak Digital required a printer that could accurately match reds and orange as closely as possible – a near match just would not be acceptable for our clients so this printer had to be good. After viewing samples we made our minds up that the Epson SC80600 was the way to go. The SC80600’s ability to print either white or metallic silver was also a big contributing factor in our decision.”
Epson says the SureColor Solvent 80600 is designed to produce flexible high value signage quickly, easily and at minimum cost. The company claims the press suits a variable workflow with low to medium production volumes and can be used with a wide range of media including paper, canvas, film and vinyl. Epson says it can be used for an extended range of applications including large format photo and image printing, high-value high-impact indoor POS, durable outdoor signage, back-lit displays, window decorations, banners, vehicle wraps, wallpapers, surface finishes and labels.

Robertson says, “The SC80600 incorporates Epson’s latest PrecisionCore printhead and UltraChrome Eco-Solvent ink technology. It produces durable prints that are bright and glossy with an unparalleled colour gamut and is designed to produce premium quality output, using minimum ink, with simple operation and fast job completion. The output speed and the ability of this amazing printer to so accurately colour match were unquestionably the main factors in our decision to purchase it.
“The SC80600’s ability to print a much wider colour gamut means we are able to consistently and accurately match corporate colours, a major bonus for our customers. The machine also continuously runs unattended allowing operators to perform other tasks without the worry of checking the printer and despite its constant use, since we acquired it we have had no issues that have required technicians or operator intervention. Moving forward it will be hard to find a better large format signage printer than the SC80600 as the fact that we can so consistently meet customer demands in terms of colour matching and turnaround times makes it incredibly hard to beat and in my opinion the best printer in its class.”
Peak Digital offers a broad of services across design, prepress, large format digital print, screen printing, signage and installation.
