Epson's advanced imaging technologies combine unparalleled image quality & excellent productivity
Epson is poised to elevate professional printing with a new benchmark in high-performance solvent printing, as the digital imaging leader introduced its newest line-up of Epson S-Series signage printers.
The new Epson SureColor S-Series printers are Epson's most advanced signage printers to date. The first signage printer to be powered by Epson's advanced PrecisionCoreTM Thin Film Piezo (TFP) printhead, the new SureColor S-series brings enhanced performance, reliability, and image quality. All three printers are designed to meet the most demanding jobs while minimizing operation costs.
The S-series is designed for high-speed production printing on a wide range of coated and uncoated surfaces with an all-new precision media feeding system for significantly faster speeds compared to predecessors.
The new S-series 64-inch S40670, S60670, and S80670 printers incorporate the all-new fourth-generation Epson Ultrachrome GS3 solvent ink which enable reduced ink consumption, and are 10% to 15% more efficient in printing compared to previous generations. The new Ultrachrome GS3 inks have improved vibrancy and wider color gamut, as well as improved drying times and extended outdoor durability, reducing total cost of ownership.
Epson's Ultrachrome GS3 inks require no special ventilation when operating indoors, as the eco-solvent ink is virtually odorless. It features a safe pigment formulation that is 100% free of nickel and fluorine compounds, while maintaining a high degree of outdoor durability. It is also Greenguard Gold certified and meets the French-VOC A+ Class criteria for low chemical emissions.
Continuing to set the SureColor S-Series family of solvent printers apart from the competition, the UltraChrome GS3 inks utilized in the SC-80600, SC-S60600, and SC-S40600 now allow for same-day lamination — only six hours after completing a print job. When compared with previous generation solvent inks that typically require 24-48 hours of drying time, the SureColor S-Series provides significantly increased revenue opportunities by enabling sign shop owners to complete same-day project delivery.
"The new generation Epson S-Series printers deliver on what the market demands in a high-quality, eco-solvent, and production-grade printing machine. Innovations in imaging technology, coupled with the latest Epson UltraChrome GS3 ink system, provide the ultimate combination of performance and photographic quality to enable print shops of any size to get the job done, on time and beyond expectations," explained Pamela Albar, head of Epson Philippines Corporation's Commercial & Industrial Printers.
The new SureColor S-Series includes the flagship SC-S80600, which is geared toward applications in signage, vehicle graphics, and fine art reproduction markets. It features a Dual-Array PrecisionCore TFP print head and enhanced precision media feeding system to produce high-quality, sellable output at impressive production speeds. The SC-S80600 leverages Epson UltraChrome GS3 solvent inks, including an all new GS3 Red ink, and optional White or Metallic Silver ink, to produce vivid output with an expansive color gamut, high gloss levels, and best-in-class photographic output quality.
Barely a month after the unveiling, customers who have upgraded to the new standard of signage printing has raved on the benefits of using the S Series printers.
"We use the Epson SureColor SC-80600 to tackle a variety of applications, ranging from artist canvas and textile reproductions to wallpaper and an assortment of wall art, all at up to 75 % better production. We couldn't be more thrilled with this machine. Not only does it require less maintenance than predecessor solutions, it offers the best color gamut available in any solvent printer out there, along with incredible ease-of-use, better output quality, and faster print speeds."

With the Epson SureColor SC-80600 solvent printer, we continue to provide unparalleled excellence in high quality and accurate print products on a variety of substrates — canvas, poster board, metal, plastic, and more. And now it's even faster. The ability to adjust print speeds based on required detail affords us the ability to offer different levels of service. Even at its slowest speed, it's faster than its predecessor."
