Epson Introduces Next-Generation 64-Inch Solvent Printer
LONG BEACH, Calif. – Epson America introduced its next generation 64-inch solvent printer – the EPSON SureColor S30670. Incorporating Epson’s latest technological breakthroughs, the SureColor S30670 is the first ever solvent-based printer to use the EPSON MicroPiezo TFP print head, bringing a new level of quality, performance and value to the signage, vehicle graphics and fine art markets.
“Our first generation solvent printer – the EPSON Stylus Pro GS6000 – has been a game changer in the signage market over the last four years, bringing advanced image quality and an ink technology with less impact on the environment to the industry to open up a new range of applications for solvent printing,” said Reed Hecht, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “The new SureColor S30670 offers advancements in print head and ink technology to deliver higher quality printing, faster and better, at an extreme overall value.”
The SureColor S30670 utilizes an entirely new print engine featuring Epson’s MicroPiezo TFP print head to deliver droplet sizes as small as 4.2 picoliters and double the nozzle density of Epson’s previous solvent printer for extremely fast print speeds. The SureColor S30670 is a four-color solvent printer (CMYK) leveraging new EPSON UltraChrome GS2 solvent-based ink technology. Developed exclusively by Epson, UltraChrome GS2 includes a newly formulated yellow ink that can produce prints with up to three years of outdoor durability without lamination. In addition, these new inks deliver virtually odorless printing without the need for external dryers, special ventilation or air purification systems, and do not contain Nickel (Ni) compounds, helping to reduce impact on the environment and potential harm to employees.
