Epson launches new T-series printheads

Print Solutions

Epson is adding two new printheads to its line up in the second half of fiscal year 2021. The new products will strengthen the line up for applications including signage and easily allow printers to deliver high quality print at high speed.

The T3200-U3 enables simultaneous high quality, four colour CMYK printing at high speed from a single printhead. Incorporating a heater in the printhead makes printing with highly viscous UV ink possible, providing an optimal digital printing environment for signage and packaging. The two colour version, theT1600-U3, will be released to market at the same time.

These new products will expand Epson’s PrecisionCore printhead offering to a six series line up and provide a diverse range of digital printing options.

Features of the T3200

Enables outstanding print quality in four-color CMYK from a single printhead with built-in heater.

Ordinarily, a pair of two colour printheads must be combined to print in four colour. The T3200, however, can eject the four CMYK colours from a single printhead. A precision processed positioning mechanism will help save time and money by removing the need to engineer a mechanism to determine the spacing between printheads or adjust during installation.

Features of the T3200 and T1600

High speed printing enabled by a wide effective print width.

The T3200 and T1600 have an effective print width of 67.2 mm (2.65 inches) and a piezoelectric actuator to enable the ejection of larger ink droplets at higher frequencies. This facilitates faster printing without compromising on image quality or ease of installation.

The T3200 and T1600 are the first printheads in the Epson PrecisionCore series to have a built-in heater. The heater makes it possible to eject UV inks of various viscosities, expanding the range of possible applications, especially within signage and packaging.

A variety of printers can be developed by combining the T3200 and T1600

The four colour T3200 and the two colour T1600 can be flexibly arranged to enable customers to develop many different types of printers with different numbers of colours and speeds. For example, the T3200 can be equipped with CMYK ink and the T1600 can be equipped with special inks such as white and varnish.

The two new products will accelerate the digitisation of signage printing and provide customers with an environment in which high quality, high speed printing can be more easily implemented.

Epson will continue to develop original technology to contribute to the expansion of its customers’ businesses and further accelerate inkjet innovation.

Release date is for the second half of the 2021 fiscal year ending March 2022.
