Epson launched a new signage printer, SureColor SC-B9070, touted as the company’s fastest B-series signage printer. The high-performance dye-based printer is suited for high-volume, short-term indoor signage installations for retail and advertising.
The printer uses dual PrecisionCore Thin Film Piezo printheads and is capable of printing up to 100sqm per hour. The nozzles enable multi-sized dot control for precision printing.
The SC-B9070 comes with large 1.5-litre capacity ink tanks which reduces the frequency of ink refills. Epson says the high-volume ink tank also lowers total cost of ownership for greater cost savings.
The printer uses Epson’s Precision Dot image processing technology with features such as Half Tone Module, Look Up Table and Micro Weave that help reduce graininess and banding, and ensure smooth colour gradation for high-quality prints.
It has a precise media feeding system to ensure continued stable printing with high reliability and minimum downtime. The Advanced Auto Tension Control feature and an automatic initial skew correction mechanism ensure smooth media feed and minimal errors during high volume production. The printer also has an after-heater to dry the ink and minimising transferring wet ink to the roll.
The SC-B9070 comes with Epson Edge Print software which provides a user-friendly interface for enhanced workflow, image editing and colour management. It also works with the Epson Control Dashboard software that can control up to four printers for remote maintenance, real-time monitoring of consumables and perform updates.
