Epson Launches Wide-Format SureColor Screen Print Edition Printers
At the Imprinted Sportswear Shows (ISS) Long Beach, California event held last week, Epson debuted two new graphics solutions targeting screen printers, the 17-inch SureColor P800 Screen Print Edition, and the 24-inch Sure Color T3270 Screen Print Edition. Both printers come bundled with AccuRIP Black Pearl SE software and Epson Screen Positive Film, which the company said produces the high-quality film positives used to burn screens for the traditional screen printing process. Both Epson Screen Print Edition printers were on display at their ISS booth.
"Epson is committed to bringing the most advanced printing solutions to market for proofing, graphic arts, photography and screen printing professionals," Matt Kochanowski, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc., said in a statement. "The new SureColor P800 and T3270 Screen Print Editions combine our most sophisticated graphics printing technologies available with the powerful, intuitive AccuRIP Black Pearl SE software, resulting in amazing proofs, as well as exceptional quality screen positives at incredibly fast speeds.”
Epson said that leveraging the company’s UltraChrome HD Ink and UltraChrome XD pigment inks respectively, the SureColor P800SP and T3270SP “provide a complete film positive printing solution.” Both can produce high-quality solid and halftone films up to 65 lines-per-inch with high UV opacity and black density up to 4.0 Dmax.
