Epson has announced that its first signage printers to feature multi-purpose resin ink are now available through authorized Epson Professional Imaging resellers. The 64-inch SureColor® R5070 and SureColor R5070L roll-to-roll signage printers with water-based resin ink consistently provide professional-quality wallpapers, fabrics, uncoated papers, and traditional signage at remarkable speeds.
Both printers offer low ink costs and feature 1.5L ink packs for enhanced efficiency; the SureColor R5070L includes 3L per color with hot swap technology that automatically switches from an empty ink pack to a new pack mid-print for uninterrupted printing.
Image Options, a leader in the printing, surface imaging, display, and visual communications industry, has been using the SureColor R5070L for several months to deliver adhesive vinyl, canvas and wallpaper. “We have had great success printing on materials in which other roll-to-roll printers have previously had ink adhesion issues,” said Dave Brewer, CTO, Image Options. “The SureColor R5070L has been easy to use and the onboard instructions have made routine maintenance a breeze. We are very pleased with the versatility of this printer.”
The SureColor R5070 and SureColor R5070L leverage six-color UltraChrome® RS Resin ink to produce professional-quality prints and color consistency for repeat jobs, brand colors, wall tiling applications, and more. Delivering immediate lamination and high scratch resistance increases overall productivity, and user-replaceable, state-of-the-art 2.6-inch PrecisionCore® printheads offer convenience for self-serviceability and minimal downtime. Both printers include the new Epson Edge Print® enterprise workflow software for tracking jobs, managing variable data and streamlining workflow integration. Access to the Epson Edge Dashboard provides users with remote oversite and control of their Epson printer fleet.
“Whether printing adhesive vinyl, banners, wall coverings, or on uncoated papers, high-volume print shops need powerful, versatile printing solutions that can tackle jobs with unparalleled speed and efficiency,” said Matt McCausland, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America Inc. “The new SureColor R5070 and SureColor R5070L offer breakthrough resin ink technology and immediate lamination to deliver astounding quality prints at true production speeds.”
