Epson 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.
Check back next week to learn how to load roll paper in this printer and to get a peek at the various options on the printer’s front panel (printer LCD).
ONYX announced an SGIA show special that starts now: Purchase Thrive 211 by Nov. 30 and you can add another printer to the RIP software at no cost, a $1,295 value. The SGIA Expo is in Las Vegas this year and runs from Oct. 18-20, but you can take advantage of this deal through LexJet any time between now and Nov. 30.
Thrive is an Adobe-based workflow product for production printing. The big news here is the ability with Thrive to run on multiple computers with one license, and Thrive’s Adobe PDF Print Engine.
“One of our customers was trying to drive six printers with one ProductionHouse license, but now with Thrive they can spread it out to other computers without having to buy multiple licenses and they’ve been able to double their production,” explains Mark Maynard, ONYX general manager for the Americas. “With PDF files, sometimes you have to go into Illustrator and flatten the file or save it as a TIFF, so there’s an extra step involved in that case. Since Thrive is an Adobe-based workflow solution it RIPs the file the first time around without having to do additional work to the file.”
Maynard adds that Thrive offers print shops a cost-effective way to grow their business by spreading out the workflow across multiple computers and streamlining the Adobe print process. Therefore, Thrive is more easily scalable as the print shop adds more printers and grows their business.
Plus, you can drive production from a mobile device, like an iPad, with the new Thrive Production Manager. With Thrive Production Manager on a secure network you simply open a browser, point it to the RIP Queue, and away you go, wherever you are.
ONYX Thrive comes in three different configurations: 211 for $3,295 (two RIPs, one large-format or grand-format printer and one Job Editor, formerly known as Preflight), 642 for $6,995 (six RIPs, four printers, two Job Editors) and 862 for $8,995 (eight RIPs, six printers, two Job Editors).
With ONYX Thrive, you can also add ONYX Advantage, a service program that includes software maintenance and Live! Web-based training – where you choose any three of a variety of instructor-led online sessions for the training that best suits your needs – and personalized training – a two-hour personalized and custom Web-based training session for your print shop that provides the confidence that operators are maximizing the performance and automation of your ONYX Thrive workflow.
