Epson, a digital imaging and printing solution leader, announced the launch of two new inkjet signage printers featuring its multi-purpose resin inks in Bangalore on 18 February 2020. The innovative signage printers, SC-R5030L and SC-R5030, produce exceptional-quality prints for diverse applications, with immediate lamination and high scratch resistance.
The new printers are designed to provide outstanding quality prints and high-quality color reproduction and consistency, making them suitable for a wide range of signage printing applications on various media. The printers are targeted at print shops and jobbers for outdoor signage, indoor signage, and wall graphics.
Using Epson’s water-based resin inks, the SC-R5030L and SC-R5030 enable printing on a wide variety of media such as vinyl, banner, canvas, film, textile, paper, and wall covering media. Moreover, Epson’s water-based resin inks are environmentally certified and odorless, making printing applications safe for use.
User-replaceable PrecisionCore printheads
Priced at Rs 17,06,559 for the SC-R5030 printer and Rs.20,07,959 for the SC-R5030L printer, Epson’s new 64-inch signage printers are an evolution of the company’s trusted printing technology. The company states that the two new printers provide enhanced functions to increase business efficiency. The printheads can now be replaced by users themselves, reducing external dependency and downtime, making business operations more efficient.
The bulk ink solution features a 1.5-liter ink bag option for medium print volume output and two swappable ink sets for high print volume (available on the SC-R5030L). Fully controlled heating technology, combined with long-life PrecisionCore Micro TFP printheads, provides reliable color consistency across the print run’s full length. The level of consistency helps avoid the need for reprints due to color mismatches. In addition, the fast curing inks enable lamination and same-day delivery and reducing turnaround times.
Commenting on the launch, LK Vasudevan, general manager, LFP/IE at Epson India, says, “With the launch of the SC-R5030L and SC-R5030, Epson strengthens its position in the resin ink printer market in India. With the new 64-inch signage printers and UltraChrome water-based resin inks, customers can now get a broader range of applications for display in retail environments, graphic printing as well as high-value applications such as wallpaper, soft signage, and decoration. In order to reach the consistent quality level that customers demand, Epson manufactures all the components, including the revolutionary PrecisionCore Printheads, the water-based resin inks, firmware, and software.
