Epson’s New SureColor T Series and Setup Videos

Setting up Epson inkjet printers for technical and GIS printingEpson America recently introduced a new line of large-format color plotters designed to meet the specific requirements of today’s engineering and scientific professionals – the Epson SureColor T3000 (24″ wide), T5000 (36″ wide) and T7000 (44″ wide).

The T Series marks Epson’s entry into the technical printing market, giving architects, engineers and GIS professionals a powerful combination of precision, performance and value.

Built from the ground up using all-Epson engineering, and incorporating the latest in printing technology, the Epson SureColor T-Series delivers extreme line accuracy with resolutions up to 2880 x 1440 dpi at some of the fastest speeds in its class – producing a presentation quality D-size plot in as little as 25 seconds and up to 110 per hour.

For added performance, the SureColor T-Series plotters feature a convenient output stacking basket that organizes up to 20 A1/D- or A0/E-sized plain paper plots for quick retrieval and to reduce sorting time.

 The SureColor T-Series also features Epson’s latest ink technology, Epson UltraChrome XD pigment ink, delivering crisp lines, brilliant color and photographic quality on virtually any paper type for accurate prints that are truly archival and extremely smudge and water-resistant.

For added flexibility, the T-Series Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Photo Black and Matte Black ink cartridges are available in 110 ml, 350 ml, as well as a high-capacity 700 ml size to lower overall printing costs and to accommodate a range of printing tasks.

Like any other printer, a little bit of help with printer setup can go a long way in getting your new printer up and running in a short amount of time. While the setup guide and quick reference guide that accompany the Epson SureColor T-Series printers are invaluable, sometimes seeing how everything comes together can be even better.

Embedded below, in the order shown, are the Epson SureColor T-Series Printer Setup Videos: Printer Stand Assembly, Paper Basket Assembly and Installing Ink Cartridges.

Are You Compatible? Find out with LexJet’s Ink Compatibility Tool

Ink is the proverbial oil that makes your printer go, and is arguably the most important component in your printer to ensure image consistency and fidelity. To make sure you’re getting the right ink for your printer – as in, for instance, “Do I need Vivid Magenta or just Magenta?” – be sure to try LexJet’s Ink Compatibility Tool.

Aside from the always helpful Shopping Lists (click here to find out more), the Ink Compatibility Tool brings up only the inks that are compatible with the specific printer selected. For example, if you choose the EPSON Stylus Pro 7890, only the inks that work with that particular printer will show up, not the extraneous Green and Orange inks that work in the 7900.

There are two ways to access the Ink Compatibility Tool:

First, you can select it from the LexJet homepage

Selecting the right ink for the printer

Or, you can Shop By Department and select Ink

Choosing the right ink for a printer

Both the Shopping Lists and the Ink Compatibility Tool may be the best way to minimize ink order errors. Give it a shot and let us know how they work for you. If you have any questions or need any assistance, give a LexJet customer specialist a shout at 800-453-9538.
