"We have been using the SureColor T5270D dual-roll 36-inch printer with the multifunction scanning module to create drawings for a variety of customers in the civil engineering market, with needs ranging from 36-inch wide output down to 18-inch drawings to meet strict LA County requirements," said George Shweiri, Owner, Denn Engineers.
