SureColor S60600L and S80600L with Bulk Ink System

Epson America also rolled out new 64-inch SureColor S-Series solvent printers with a bulk ink system, the SureColor S60600L and the SureColor S80600L.

The SureColor S60600L features a four-color bulk ink pack system, while the SureColor S80600L features a 10-color bulk ink pack system, which Epson says both provide double the ink capacity of previous generations for a “remarkably low ink cost per milliliter and minimized waste when compared to Epson cartridge systems.” The higher ink capacity is also said to enable longer print runs as ink has to be re-supplied less frequently.

Epson says the SureColor S80600L is a “premium print solution capable of hitting 98.2 percent PANTONE coverage.”

Both new models are also said to offer over 30-percent better ink efficiency than comparable latex solutions, and can produce decals, labels, banners, and more at $0.165 per milliliter.
