Epson announces brand new 44-inch photo and technical printers
SureColor SC-P8500D and SC-T7700D offer productivity combined with highest security standards
15th June 2021 – Global technology firm Epson has announced a new range of printers which includes two new 44-inch printers — the SC-T7700D for the technical/AEC and POS markets and the SC-P8500D for photo production.
Both are designed for users looking for a compact and stylish dual-roll printer that offers the highest levels of security together with exceptional productivity and image quality.
Slim-line and unobtrusive, they fit seamlessly into most working environments. The flat backs of the printers enable them to be stored tightly against the wall and the flat top surface can be used as a proofing bench and station.
The user experience is simplified with everything accessible from the front of the printers – an intuitive user interface, retractable basket and consumables – all without having to move the printer from its convenient location.
Productivity is optimised thanks to the 2.64-inch PrecisionCore MicroTFP printhead, Variable Sized Droplet technology, and Nozzle Verification Technology. A new simplified automatic roll loading feature makes media installation effortless coupled with automatic media switching between rolls, and the optional Production Stacker adds a finishing solution, stacking prints from up to 2 whole rolls.
Secure printing is assured thanks to a vast range of enhanced IT and security features. Secure communications with network authentication, data protection and device access control mean that highly confidential documents can be protected. Supporting Open Platform allows customers to work with ISVs to tailor their printing solutions, and central managing and tracking applications such as Epson’s Cloud Solution PORT and software tools allow for central management of external threats, making these printers ideal for commercial businesses.
The SureColor SC-T7700D has been designed for architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) companies producing detailed and precise CAD plans and drawings as well as retailers that need to produce point of sale (POS) posters that exactly replicate logo colours. Government and public sector companies with workers based across different sites will also benefit from the high-level security features. The 6-colour Ultrachrome XD3 ink set uses a new red ink, giving vivid depth of colour, and crisp, sharp lines.
Tom Owers, Pro Graphics Product Manager at Epson UK said, “The SC-T7700D offers a fully integrated printing solution with productive printing, smart features and easy operation with the highest standards of document security.”
The SC-P8500D has been designed for high print volume poster production and copy shops offering large format photo printing also as self-service. The 6-colour UltraChrome Pro6 inkset offers matte and photo black as well as a new grey ink for smooth gradations and reduced graininess.
Owers continues: “Our customers in this area need low running costs, high production speeds and easy printer handling. Combined with great image quality and a small footprint, the SC-P8500D is an ideal proposition.”
The SC-T7700D and SC-P8500D will be available from September 2021.
