Epson expands LFP range for CAD/GIS professionals

Epson has added 18 variables to its large-format printer range, expanding its SureColor T-Series range to offer easier and more cost-effective large-format printing solutions in response to direct feedback from CAD/GIS professionals. Models include the SureColor SC-T3200, SC-T5200 and SC-T7200 series and variations thereof. The new range SureColor SC-T Series includes three sizes for media of 610mm, 914mm and 1118mm wide. The printers accept board of up to 1.5mm thick and can print on canvas media too. The range includes single roll units, double roll units, and a 914mm wide Epson scanner can be added to the AO and AO+ range. Users are also able to add an optional 320Gb Hard Disk Drive as a stand-alone version or with Adobe Post Script. The Adobe PostScript and HDD versions both allow the processing and storage of different file versions, as well as network connectivity options for scan and print. The new range SureColor SC-T Series has been designed to reliably produce sharp detail and vibrant colour output with minimal operator input. The range is ideal for applications where speed and economy are paramount, such as printing architectural plans, maps, presentations, posters and indoor signage. The printers take just 28 seconds to produce an A1 print in draft mode, and offer one of the fastest scan and print times in this class, at 39 seconds for an A1. Vernon Mellors, large-format and pro-photo account manager at Epson South Africa, said, ‘When developing a new printer, we always ask our customers what they need. Our customers told us they wanted a printer that fits easily into their current production environment and assists in cost management.’ Epson has responded to the needs of their consumers as cost efficiency and streamlined printing are enhanced by the inclusion of the Epson PrecisionCore print head in the SC-T series range. PrecisionCore is a permanent print head and eliminates the need to stock replacement print heads, removing the worry of any interruptions during a print run.
