SureColor S80600.

The SureColor Solvent 80600 is designed to produce durable images with maximum impact quickly, easily, and at reduced cost. It suits operation with flexible workflow and medium production volumes. It is compatible with wide range of media and suits applications including high-value large format photo imaging, PANTONE® certified POS & signage, back-lit displays and window decorations, wallpapers, surface finishes & décor.

Key Features

Superior Quality & Consistency

The SC-S80600 incorporates Epson's latest heat-free PrecisionCore print heads. The heads employ Variable Sized Dot Technology (VSDT) to enable drops as small as 4.2pl for smooth colour gradation with optimum ink application. While competing head technologies use heat to form droplets, Epson employs a patented MicroPeizo operation that is kinder on the ink for superior colour accuracy while also enabling extended head durability. The heads are driven by Epson Precision Dot Technology with an upgraded LUT & upgraded Half Tone Module for images with higher contrast and reduced grain. A new Control Dashboard application provides access to a library of optimised settings for common media types while new print modes provide superior results with special and custom substrates.** Additional new MicroWeave patterns enable output with higher uniformity and reduced banding at lower pass rates.

Simpler & Faster Operation

The SC-S80600 has been designed for fast and flexible ad-hoc production. Inks adhere to vinyl, canvas, film, photographic paper and banner substrates. They dry quickly to enable continuous roll-to-roll production and outgas rapidly for same-day job turnaround complete with lamination.** The printer supports single operator media loading with an integrated easy lifter and a platen release that is accessible from the rear. Media setting can be achieved quickly with auto skew correction and downloadable profiles. In-line flow regulators re-agitate the ink before it passes to the print head to ensure more accurate and consistent colour density in environments with low and/or intermittent production.

Easier Maintenance and Lower Running Costs

The SC-S80600 has been designed to address the increasingly competitive nature of the signage market. It provides superior and more consistent output with faster job turnaround, reduced downtime and lower production costs. It features a head guard that protects against media crashes and collects dust that may otherwise spoil prints. The guard protects against media crashes while collecting dust that may otherwise spoil prints with smudges and miscellaneous ink drops. The printer incorporates a new Automatic Head Cleaning System that periodically engages a Fabric Wiper to remove ink build up from the head and fluff build up from the guard. It also incorporates a new air circulation system that removes airborne dust and ink particles, collecting them in filters that are replaced every 3 to 6 months (along with the Fabric Wiper). Less print wastage tends to be incurred and there is a significant reduction in the amount of maintenance and labour.

Printing software now included

Include with the SureColor range is the all new Edge Print providing a simple and effective tool for production imaging in environments which do not require advanced workflow management. The software was developed by Epson and provides access to the full power inherent in our Large Format Printers. It draws on our advanced LUT tables to ensure precise and predictable colour. It accesses our smallest dot sizing to enable output with ultra-smooth tonal gradation and minimum ink consumption. It uses our Half Tone Modules to enable the widest possible colour gamut on a range of printer models and ink sets.

The software provides all the functionality of a basic to mid-level RIP application without the complexity or cost. It was designed to be quick to learn and easy to use. Unlike a lot of print applications it provides true on-screen visualisation so operators can see what their output will look like including variables such as the input profile, media profile and rendering intent. Image processing can be completed quickly while errors and wastage are minimised.

The software works in conjunction with Epson Edge Dashboard to enable printer and fleet management complete with downloadable media and print profile settings. It supports spot colour replacement and incorporates a raft of features not usually found in a product of its class including auto image nesting, step & repeat, tiling, and hot folder operation. It RIPs images quickly and processes visual adjustments even faster. Each copy will drive up to 4 printers and up to 4 copies can be loaded on a single PC. It incorporates a high performance Adobe Postscript engine with on-line registration and license management that supports PC replacement.
