Epson offers two new high-speed, easy-to-use wide-format SureColor T-Series plotters—the Epson SureColor T3170 24-in. desktop printer and the SureColor T5170 36-in. floor-standing printer. Marking Epson’s expansion of the T-Series product line to the low-to-mid-range CAD printer market, the new wireless printers feature a clean and compact design coupled with printing performance, the company reports. Whether printing blueprints, line drawings, signage or classroom posters the SureColor T3170 and SureColor T5170 benefit professionals and workgroups across a range of segments including engineering, CAD, GIS, education, corporate, home and small office settings.
“The SureColor T3170 and T5170 are designed specifically for innovators—engineers, designers and architects—looking for a compact printer that is worthy of being displayed in their environment,” says Matt Kochanowski, product manager, professional imaging, Epson America, Inc. “Leveraging Epson’s latest technology to deliver class leading print performance, the new printers also feature a new footprint that enhances today’s workspaces and allows users to wirelessly produce accurate and vibrant prints from tablets and smartphones virtually anywhere.”
Leveraging Epson’s new PrecisionCore MicroTFP printhead technology and enhanced Nozzle Verification Technology to automatically detect and adjust nozzle condition, the new printers offer print speeds producing accurate A1/D-size prints in 34 seconds, detail and commercial-grade reliability, the company notes. Featuring integrated wireless and Wi-Fi Direct connectivity, designers can print from tablets and smartphones or use the new 4.3-in. LCD color touchscreen with simple and intuitive menu control and navigation. Next-generation high-capacity UltraChrome XD2 pigment inks deliver vibrant prints with brilliant color and crisp lines, the company adds.
