Epson has recently launched the SureColor S80600L and S60600L Bulk Ink Printers. The SureColor S80600L and S60600L allow high production shops to print for extended times with 1.5 liter ink packs at lower prices. "Apart from cost savings, the UltraChrome GS3 inks have a six-hour degassing time which allows printers to print and lami- nate in the same day," Lopez concludes. Added Durability Rugen explains that eco-solvent inks are still used when extreme stretching might be involved in the application, such as for vehicle wraps. "The inks are softer and can be stretched around tight corners without cracking. Also, most eco- solvent inks are very durable and resis- tant to outdoor environments." He adds that vehicle wraps, print and cut applications for interior walls, decals, outdoor window graphics, and floor graphics are just a few applications where eco-solvent is one of the best solutions. Mutoh's New Additions Mutoh recently rolled out two new eco-solvent printers that reportedly fea- ture huge improvements in user-friend- liness. "Our new XpertJets 1641SR and 1682SR allow for greater access to main- tenance area, LEDs illuminate the printer platen for easy viewing of prints even with the cover closed, and easier load- ing of heavy media. The XpertJets also run Mutoh's new MS41 inks, which have a wide color gamut, better dot gain and are formulated to make maintenance easy. In addition, we've added even more com- munications with the user through our Mutoh Status Monitor software," Rugen concludes. SDG This van wrap was output on the Roland TrueVIS VG2 printer-cutter.
