Epson Forays in to Technical/CAD printing

 As part of its mid-term growth strategy to 2015, Epson has delivered on its promise to drive growth in commercial and industrial printing by launching three new printer models. The Epson SureColor T series is the company’s first printer series that is especially designed for technical / Computer Aided Design (CAD) printing. The printers in the series have identical features that have been optimized for technical printing needs, but come in a 24-inch, 36-inch or 44-inch wide format, allowing users to choose the ideal size for their requirements and budget.

These new printers harness the power of Epson’s leading “Micro Piezo” piezoelectric print head technology to give customers highly valued capabilities ranging from low cost, to high speed and high quality printing. Most importantly, the low heat involved in the operation of the Micro Piezo print heads allows a wider range of ink types and substrates to be used compared to competing ink-based technologies.

New Epson SureColor T Series Technical / Computer Aided Design (CAD) Printers

The Epson SureColor T series is the company’s first printer series that is specially designed for technical / Computer Aided Design (CAD) printing. The printers in the series have identical features that have been optimized for technical printing needs and are available in 24-inch, 36-inch or 44-inch wide format, allowing users to choose the ideal size for their requirements and budget.

The power of Epson Micro Piezo technology for technical / CAD printing - The Epson SureColor T series printers introduce Epson's multi award winning Micro Piezo Advanced TFP print head technology to the technical / CAD printing industry for the first time. The piezoelectric based inkjet print head gives the T series a maximum resolution of 2880 x 1440dpi and features Epson’s Variable-size Droplet Technology (VSDT) that can eject ink droplets in multiple sizes to enhance clarity and recreate fine detail while delivering optimum efficiency for larger areas of colour. The printers’ highly power-efficient Micro Piezo print head generates less operation heat, thereby qualifying them for an Energy Star certification.

New Epson UltraChrome XD ink - The Epson SureColor T series comes with a new Epson UltraChrome XD Ink which was specifically developed for technical and CAD printing. Working in tandem with the Micro Piezo print head, the UltraChrome XD inks produce high-quality, durable prints with deep blacks. It also supports prints with wide colour gamut and crisp dense lines with a minimum width of 0.02mm. These water based inks are environmentally friendly.

High speed printing - Using a 4-colour ink set, the printers are fast, reliable and economical. Each printer is able to generate an A1 printout in a mere 28 seconds (in draft mode on plain paper). This makes them ideal for printing architectural designs and plans, GIS maps, presentations, as well as posters and indoor signage. Further improving efficiency, the printers are quick to set up with automatic photo and matte black ink switching. In addition to this they are extremely user friendly

User friendly operation - Designed to fit into an office environment, these printers feature sleek styling, small footprint, top-loading media path, low operation noise and can be fully operated from the front, allowing them to be positioned against a wall.
