Epson Raises Industry Standard for Solvent Printing

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Epson America today introduced the all new EPSON SureColor S50670 and S70670, rounding out its line of industry-changing 64-inch solvent printers. Joining the SureColor S30670, these new printers incorporate Epson’s latest technological breakthroughs and use the EPSON MicroPiezo TFP print head to bring previously unseen levels of quality, performance and value to the signage, vehicle graphics and fine art markets.

“These new solvent-based printers will redefine what is possible with a solvent printer,” said Reed Hecht, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “The SureColor S50670 and S70670 will introduce new levels of speed never before seen in this class of products, and a level of image quality that far surpasses any solvent printer available today. Together with the SureColor S30670, the three revolutionary SureColor S-Series products are poised to drastically raise customers’ expectations for solvent printing, allowing new applications and higher quality printing at dramatically faster speeds.”

These new products utilize Epson’s dual array EPSON MicroPiezo TFP print heads to deliver extremely small droplet sizes and four times the nozzles of Epson’s previous solvent printer for extremely fast print speeds. Under development for over 20 years, this is the first time this revolutionary dual array print head is being used with a solvent ink technology. To match the capabilities of this new print head, Epson developed two revolutionary solvent-based ink technology breakthroughs which enable a level of image quality and color capability previously unseen. Featured on the SureColor S50670, EPSON UltraChrome GS2 ink delivers up to five colors with a radical new high density White ink to accommodate a broad range of indoor and outdoor signage applications. The all-new EPSON UltraChrome GSX ink featured on the SureColor S70670 delivers up to ten colors (a technology first for solvent printers), including an optional White and Silver Metallic, as well as a first ever standard Light Black for improved grayscale and reduced metamerism to deliver a level of image quality and color gamut previously unattainable in a solvent printer.

The SureColor S-Series is built on an all new print engine and is comprised of three models offering varying performance and feature sets to accommodate a range of signage, vehicle graphics and fine art solvent printing needs:
