The new Epson SureColor P6000 and P8000.

Yesterday, Epson America expanded its inkjet-based SureColor wide-format series with the SureColor P-Series, which starts at $2,995, and which is based on Epson’s PrecisionCore TFP color inkjet print-head technology, and uses an eight-color Epson’s UltraChrome HD ink set. The new 24-inch SureColor P6000 and 44-inch SureColor P8000 are designed for graphic designers, commercial printers, and photographers. Successors to the Epson Stylus Pro 900-Series, the new 24-inch SureColor P7000 and 44-inchSureColor P9000 incorporate a reformulated Epson UltraChrome HDX 10-color ink set for both commercial and flexographic printers, as well as for graphic designers, photographers, and fine-art reproduction houses.

The SC-P7000 and SC-P9000 are available in a Commercial Edition featuring an all-new Violet ink for an expanded color gamut delivering output matching 99-percent of the Pantone Formula Guide Solid Coated. The printers may be configured with an optional Epson SpectroProofer UVS in-line spectrophotometer designed to provide automated color management and verification-related tasks for a various proofing applications.

The new SureColor P-Series may be integrated with various industry workflow-software solutions, and feature:

  • Epson UltraChrome HD and HDX Ink: The SC-P6000/P8000 use an eight-color Epson UltraChrome HD ink set, while the SC-P7000/P9000 use a 10-color Espon UltraChrome HDX ink set. Epson says both ink sets provide improved black density: the new Black ink is 1.5 times denser than previous ink formulation. Improved Resin Encapsulation Technology also delivers superior gloss uniformity.

  • Robust Media Handling: The SureColor P Series is said to supports virtually any media type in roll or cut-sheet form, from photographic paper, to 1.5 mm thick fine-art media, and poster board. New roll-media handling provides user-selectable 3 mm top and bottom margins, and improved guide rollers for reduced media-surface impressions. A high-speed rotary cutter isincluded.
  • Optional Internal Print Server: Internal 320-GB print server for quickly transferring print jobs to free-up workstations; adds print queue management and print-job save and reprint functionality.
  • Optional SpectroProofer UVS: Developed jointly with X-Rite, the in-line spectrophotometer provides automated color-management and verification-related tasks for a range of proofing applications.
