Kemtek And Epson Webinar Outlines Large Format Printing Solution

STIXO-Signage Supplies

Kemtek and Epson South Africa recently hosted an online session where attendees were shown the new Epson SureColor signage and display range.

Presented by Vernon Mellors, Epson South Africa Corporate Account Manager, he emphasised on large format printing and its importance, mostly due its versatility and value in large space scenarios. According to Mellors while price per square metre is an important aspect, users also need to take into account speed, accuracy and quality.

The SureColor SC-S series includes models such as SC-S40610, SC-S60610 and the SC-S80610 in cartridge or bulk ink configurations, and has LED lights, media versatility (indoor, outdoor and backlit to name a few), uses eco-solvent inks, and includes options of print drying systems and fan units. There has been no third party design or production – everything has been done by Epson.

Other features include an advanced auto tension controller (which makes prints straight and even), print protection heads and take-up accuracy (resulting in less user maintenance). Unattended printing and automation systems are available, with a new bulk ink system recently introduced. Inks are GreenGuard certified. Micro-weaving eliminates banding.

Software and tools are also made by Epson, so the company no longer needs to outsource – another cost saving aspect. These are are easy to use and anyone can learn within an hour, with downloadable upgrades and the option to operate using a laptop.

Mellors reported that Epson is on a strong growth path in Central and Eastern Europe, with a particularly strong eco-solvent market share. Additionally, slow growth has been seen in the Middle East and Africa, but Epson is growing its dealer base in those regions.
