Epson launched the new SureColor SC-F9400H, its first fluorescent ink, dye sublimation large format printer, in the Middle East, during Sign and Graphic Imaging Middle East 2020, which took place in the United Arab Emirates.
The SC-F9400H offers businesses the option of printing with two genuine fluorescent inks, yellow and pink, which can be used to create a wide range of bright, vivid colours for the production of soft signage, sportswear, workwear and fashion items. The SC-F9400 series is an evolution of trusted Epson print technology and provides enhanced quality, productivity and reliability.
In addition to the SC-F9400H, the new SureColor SC-S signage printers, the SC- S60610Land the SC-S80610L, were also on display during the show.
The 64-inch SC-S60610L and the SC-S80610L printers are an extension of the award-winning SureColor SC-S series range and offer high productivity customers a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). The SC-S series continues to offer customers diverse applications with access to the Epson Edge Dashboard with over 250 EMX profile downloads for a wide range of media manufacturers and media types.
Both SureColor SC-S L models can print on a wide range of media, from clear film and photographic paper to wallpaper, canvas and vinyl, so are suited to large scale signage and displays, point of purchase applications and billboards, back/front-lit signage and car wrapping.
“At the heart of these new industrial printers is the introduction of high capacity 1.5 litre ink pouches,” says Shihab Zubair, regional sales manager - business solutions, Epson Middle East. “This means a longer running period, resulting in less user intervention and reduced downtime. The pouches are complemented by Epson’s established UltraChrome GS3 eco-solvent inks which have key environmental certifications. As with all signage printers in the SureColor SC-S range, they are low maintenance, highly reliable and easy to set up.
“We envisage a strong take up from print service providers and sign makers who cover a wide range of business sectors and applications, providing customers with signage, point of sale, textiles and interior design, especially as the UAE prepares to welcome the Dubai Expo 2020.
“Users will be impressed by the print speeds, quality, precision and performance of these new models, making a compelling business case for adding this technology to their current portfolios.”
