Epson’s newest wide-format press is set to touch down in Australia by the beginning of May, with the local supplier, Spandex, suggesting the unit will be well positioned to serve graphic arts professionals who are making their first forays into the digital printing market.

The new SureColour SC-S30600 press utilizes some of Epson’s latest developmets, including the MicroPiezo TFP print head which allows a print quality of 1400 by 1400 dpi at print speeds of up to 29.4 square metres an hour, and the new UltraChrome ink technology, which the company says has an outdoor durability of up to three-years without lamination.

Spandex Asia Pacific’s managing director, Alex McClelland, says that the press’s quality and price-point will make it suitable for printers who are just stepping into the world of indoor and outdoor signage, banner and other digital large format work.

“Due to its superb image quality, fast production speeds, environmentally friendly properties and affordable price, it provides the perfect printing solution for graphic professionals taking their first steps into the digital printing market or existing print businesses looking to expand their production capacity,” says McClelland.

Additionally, the press is designed to complement a clean working environment for operators, as it produces no harmful VOCs, and requires no external dryers, special ventilation or air cleaning systems. The unit also uses nickel-free inks, and has a low power consumption rating.

With the ability to print on an inexhaustible range of coated and uncoated media, the unit is suitable for applications as far ranging as vinyl signs, car wraps, interior decoration and canvas prints.

Spandex expects the press to be available in Australia by May. “We are very excited to include the SC-S30600 into our hardware portfolio as it’s the perfect answer to today´s fast-paced and highly demanding wide format print market,” says McClelland.
