Epson has announced two new high speed, easy to use large format plotters – the 24-inch SC-T3100 and the 36-inch SC-T5100, available as desktop or floor standing models. Marking Epson’s expansion of the T-Series product line to the low to mid range CAD plotter market, the wireless plotters feature a new clean and compact design coupled with the reliable printing performance inherent in Epson’s technical solutions.
Whether printing blueprints, line drawings, signage, or classroom posters, the SureColor T3100 and SureColor T5100 will assist professionals across a wider range of segments including architecture, engineering, CAD, GIS, education, corporate, home and small office users. The auto switching functionality enables the printers to swap between large format roll paper and A4/A3 size paper, without users having to touch the printer, ideal for small companies that have multi-purpose print requirements in a limited workspace.
Phil McMullin, sales manager, professional graphics, Epson UK, said: ‘Building on Epson’s latest technology to deliver class leading print performance, the new printers will allow users to wirelessly produce accurate and vibrant prints from tablets and smartphones virtually anywhere.’
Leveraging Epson’s PrecisionCore MicroTFP printhead technology and Nozzle Verification technology to automatically detect and adjust nozzle condition, the new printers offer fast print speeds producing accurate A1/E size prints in 31 seconds, with precise detail and commercial grade reliability. Featuring integrated wireless and Wi-Fi Direct connectivity, architects and designers can seamlessly print from tablets and smartphones or use the new 4.3 inch colour LCD touchscreen with simple and intuitive menu control and navigation. Next generation high capacity UltraChrome XD2 pigment inks deliver durable archival prints with brilliant colour and crisp lines on virtually any paper type.
The SureColor T3100 and T5100 will be available from September. The SC-T3100 will retail at £875 and the SC-T5100 will retail at £1295.
