Epson has announced a new range of high-speed, four-colour large-format printers, the SureColor SC-T series. These are roll-fed printers designed for graphics, CAD and GIS applications in the copy shop, building, engineering and education environments.
There are nine models including the high-speed 44-inch SureColor SC-T7200, 36-inch SC-T5200 and 24-inch SC-T3200. There are versions that feature double paper rolls with auto paper loading and auto switching between rolls, as well as MFP versions that include a 36-inch wide colour scanner that can be used to digitise large-format hard copies and scan-to-file, scan-to-email or scan-to-share with other SC-T printers. An A1 original can be scanned and printed in about 39 seconds. These multi-function printers are also available in either single or double-roll configurations.
These are four colour machines that use Epson’s UltraChrome XD aqueous pigment ink that are said to be water-resistant and smudge-proof and said to be suitable for short-term outdoor use as well as any indoor application.
Further options include PostScript support and a 320GB hard drive.
