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 and in this post, you will find out the costs of expenditure for each variety. The printers are targeted at print shops and jobbers for outdoor signage, indoor signage, and wall graphics and you can look here to know more about the various options offered by the leading signage designing company.

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.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
