Epson Reveals Its Production and Industrial Print Strategy for drupa
Design & prepress
The latest models in the market-leading range of 24-64 inch width aqueous inkjet Epson Stylus Pro printers will demonstrate their considerable flexibility for prepress and in-house agency proofing, short-run display and package prototyping applications.
New ink technology
Epson has just launched the next generation of odorless and nickel-free UltraChrome GS2 Ink for use in the new SureColor printer for signage applications. As an expansion to its aqueous UltraChrome inks, Epson has leveraged its expertise in fine art and professional printing to develop UltraChrome D6, a unique, six-color dye ink system for the Surelab digital dry lab. Finally, for the label convertor market, Epson will demonstrate its first UV ink for printing to uncoated paper and film label substrates during drupa.
