LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., Nov. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Committed to meeting the needs of today's print service providers, Epson today introduced the SureColor® V7000 – its first UV flatbed printer designed for printing outstanding-quality outdoor signage, promotional goods and more. Delivering bright, colorful, tactile prints with low graininess and smooth gradation, the ultra-productive SureColor V7000 4'x8' printer brings a new level of image quality, productivity and convenience to print service providers. Capable of printing on a variety of rigid substrates up to 3-inches thick, the new Epson UV flatbed printer is a flexible, reliable, entry-level flatbed solution.
"The SureColor V7000 was specifically designed to address common pain points of flatbed printer customers – quality, productivity and price – and allow print service providers to expand their business offerings with an affordable solution," said Matt McCausland, senior product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. "The new UV flatbed printer offers high-end printing technologies, with a unique Red ink never before seen in an entry-level flatbed printer and provides an easy and cost-effective option for print shops looking to expand from roll-to-roll printing to flatbed printing."
Featuring 10-color UltraChrome® UV Ink, including vivid Red Ink, Gray, opaque White Ink and eye-catching varnish, the SureColor V7000 achieves stunning prints on a variety of media. Designed to exceed flatbed printer expectations, the SureColor V7000 can produce color or 3 layer prints with little difference in production speeds by leveraging eight MicroPiezo® printheads. The printhead alignment has been engineered to deliver variable droplets and accurate placement for bright, colorful, tactile prints with low graininess and smooth gradations. The printhead also includes a new circulation system for White ink to limit sedimentation and preserve printhead nozzle integrity.
Designed with ease-of-use in mind, the SureColor V7000 offers several usability features, including a pin registration system for quick loading and easy media alignment, a multi-zone vacuum system to keep materials securely in place, and automatic thickness adjustment to instantly accommodate media up to 3-inches thick. The SureColor V7000 will include the new Epson Edge® Print workflow software featuring an Adobe® PostScript® 3™ engine for layout and print management, color management and seamless workflow integration. Access to the Epson Edge Dashboard provides users with remote oversite and control of their Epson printer fleet.
