Recently Epson America announced that they are entering the technical plotter (large-format) printing market for AEC (architecture, engineering and construction) professionals with its ground-breaking Epson SureColor T-Series plotters. The SureColor T3000, T5000 and T7000 mark Epson’s entry into this very competitive market.
Designed to exceed the needs of today’s architects, engineers, contractors and GIS professionals, the Epson SureColor line-up offers unparalleled precision, performance and value. Epson states the plotter series has the fastest plotting speeds in its class, industry-leading plotting accuracy and the all-new Epson UltraChrome XD pigment ink for brilliant, crisp output on virtually any media type.
“The SureColor T-Series was developed based on direct feedback from architects and engineers who consistently underscored the need for easy and reliable ways to make accurate, large-format plots quickly and cost effectively,” said Timothy Check, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “The SureColor T-Series not only meets those needs, but goes beyond, integrating Epson’s long-standing photo heritage and printing technology innovation into a complete line of state-of-the art plotters.”
Built from the ground up using all-Epson engineering, and incorporating the latest in printing technology, the Epson SureColor T-Series delivers extreme line accuracy with resolutions up to 2880 x 1440 dpi at some of the fastest speeds in its class – producing a presentation quality D-size plot in as little as 25 seconds and up to 110 per hour1. For added performance, the SureColor T-Series plotters feature a convenient output stacking basket that organizes up to 20 A1/D- or A0/E-sized plain paper plots for quick retrieval and to reduce sorting time.
The SureColor T-Series also features Epson’s latest ink technology, Epson UltraChrome XD pigment ink, delivering crisp lines, brilliant color and photographic quality on virtually any paper type for accurate prints that are truly archival and extremely smudge and water-resistant. For added flexibility, the T-Series ink cartridges are available in 110 ml, 350 ml, as well as a high-capacity 700 ml size to lower overall printing costs and to accommodate a range of printing tasks.
