Epson will use SDUK 2022 (NEC, 22-24 March) for the first public UK showing of its SureColor SC-V7000 UV flatbed printer.
At the event the new machine will be demonstrated showing how to produce bright, colourful, tactile prints with low graininess and smooth gradation on a variety of media, including rigid substrates.
The printer has a 10-colour UltraChrome UV inkset, including vivid red and opaque white as well as a varnish. It incorporates a multi-zone vacuum system and automatic thickness adjustment to accommodate media up to 80mm.
Epson will also show the SureColor SC-R5000L, its first resin ink large-format printer can print on a wide range of substrates such as vinyl, banner, textile, canvas, wallpaper, and film with odourless water-based ink. It uses halftoning, optimised lookup tables (LUT), and Micro Weave that reduce graininess and banding.
Other Epson printers on show will include the 10-colour SC-S80600L and SC-F500 dye-sub machine among others. Throughout the stand a range of applications - many on eco friendly substrates - will showcase applications possibilities including banners, wallpaper and floor graphics.
Phil McMullin, pro graphics sales manager, Epson UK, said: “Nothing captures attention like bold striking colours and when used creatively they can make a lasting impression. This ability to deliver memorable print, imaginatively, to a very high standard, on a diverse range of substrates, is among the key messages we will be conveying at Sign and Digital UK. We will also be presenting a number of eco friendly possibilities to demonstrate how application versatility can answer a broad range of market needs.”
