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.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
