Epson eyes wide-reaching appeal with new large-format plotter
Digital printing giant Epson has announced the launch of the new SureColor SC-T2100, the smallest large-format printer in its range of T-.series plotters that it believes will appeal to a wide range of businesses
The 24-inch printer can sit on a desktop or on its own stand and has the ability to produce professional documents such as posters, presentations, CAD schematics and architectural and engineering designs.
Major features include auto-switching functionality that enables the printer to swap between large-format roll paper and A4/A3 cut sheet paper, without the need to touch the printer.
The SureColor SC-T2100 also runs with Epson UltraChrome XD2 pigment inks, which the manufacturer said deliver “durable archival prints with brilliant colour and crisp lines” on almost all paper types for indoor and outdoor usage.
The new plotter also benefits from Epson’s PrecisionCore MicroTFP printhead technology and Nozzle Verification Technology, as well as integrated wireless and Wi-Fi Direct connectivity. The latter, Epson said, will allow users to print from tablets and smartphones, as well as the fitted touchscreen panel.
Such is the flexibility of the plotter that Tom Owers, product manager, corporate and professional printing at Epson EMEAR, told FESPA.com that the machine is suitable for use within many types of businesses.
“The SureColor SC-T2100 is ideal for professionals, entrepreneurs and start-ups looking to produce accurate and vibrant prints wirelessly from PC, tablets and smartphones,” Owers said. “Its portability makes it perfect for small retail businesses, educational establishments, engineers, designers and architects.
“It is designed to meet the needs of professionals such as architects, engineers, teachers and designers. Its robust and lightweight design makes the printer ideal for working from home, small studios, classrooms or remote locations such as construction sites.”
Owers also pointed out both the size and speed of the plotter and how these will benefit users of all types.
“The SC-T2100 has the most compact footprint in its class and the unique auto-switching functionality enables the printer to swap between large format roll paper and A4/A3 cut sheet paper, without users having to touch the printer, ideal for small companies that have multi-purpose print requirements in a limited workspace,” he said.
“The new plotter also offers swift print speeds, producing accurate A1-size prints in 43 seconds, with precise detail and commercial-grade reliability. The Epson UltraChrome XD2 pigment ink set deliver durable archival prints with brilliant colour and crisp lines on virtually any paper type for both indoor and outdoor usage.”
