Epson's new large format plotter

Digital printing giant Epson has announced the launch of the new SureColor SC-T2100, the smallest large-format printer in its range of T-.series plotters that it believes will appeal to a wide range of businesses. The 24-inch printer can sit on a desktop or on its own stand and has the ability to produce professional documents such as posters, presentations, CAD schematics, and architectural and engineering designs.

Major features include auto-switching functionality that enables the printer to swap between large-format roll paper and A4/A3 cut sheet paper, without the need to touch the printer.

The SureColor SC-T2100 also runs with Epson UltraChrome XD2 pigment inks, which the manufacturer said deliver “durable archival prints with brilliant color and crisp lines” on almost all paper types for indoor and outdoor usage.

The new plotter also benefits from Epson’s PrecisionCore MicroTFP printhead technology and Nozzle Verification Technology, as well as integrated wireless and Wi-Fi Direct connectivity. The latter, Epson said, will allow users to print from tablets and smartphones, as well as the fitted touchscreen panel.

Such is the flexibility of the plotter that Tom Owers, product manager, corporate and professional printing at Epson EMEAR, told FESPA.com that the machine is suitable for use within many types of businesses.

The SureColor SC-T2100 is ideal for professionals, entrepreneurs, and start-ups looking to produce accurate and vibrant prints wirelessly from PC, tablets, and smartphones,” Owers said. “Its portability makes it perfect for small retail businesses, educational establishments, engineers, designers, and architects.

It is designed to meet the needs of professionals such as architects, engineers, teachers, and designers. Its robust and lightweight design makes the printer ideal for working from home, small studios, classrooms, or remote locations such as construction sites.”

Owers also pointed out both the size and speed of the plotter and how these will benefit users of all types.

The SC-T2100 has the most compact footprint in its class and the unique auto-switching functionality enables the printer to swap between large format roll paper and A4/A3 cut sheet paper, without users having to touch the printer, ideal for small companies that have multi-purpose print requirements in a limited workspace,” he said.

The new plotter also offers swift print speeds, producing accurate A1-size prints in 43 seconds, with precise detail and commercial-grade reliability. The Epson UltraChrome XD2 pigment ink set delivers durable archival prints with brilliant color and crisp lines on virtually any paper type for both indoor and outdoor usage.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
