Peak Digital chose the SC80600 for its ability to print and match reds and orange at speed
Peak Digital, family owned Australian business after a period of time, investiagting available options for a new large format printer that could specialise in signage and décor, chose Epson’s SureColor Solvent SC80600. The requirements the printer had to meet were, however, quite strict.
Peak Digital Director Andrew Robertson explained, “We strive to deliver high quality printing, personalised service, competitive pricing and a fast turnaround but the emphasis really is on quality. Peak Digital required a printer that could very accurately match reds and orange as closely as possible – a near match just wouldn’t be acceptable for our clients so this printer had to be very, very good. After viewing samples, we made our minds up that the Epson SC80600 was the way to go. The SC80600’s ability to print either white or metallic silver was also a big contributing factor in our decision.”
The SureColor Solvent 80600 is designed to produce flexible high-value signage quickly, easily and at minimum cost. It suits a variable workflow with low to medium production volumes and can be used with a wide range of media including paper, canvas, film and vinyl. It suits an extended range of applications including large format photo and image printing, high-value high-impact indoor POS, durable outdoor signage, back-lit displays, window decorations, banners, vehicle wraps, wallpapers, surface finishes and labels.
Robertson continued, “The SC80600 incorporates Epson’s latest PrecisionCore printhead and UltraChrome Eco-Solvent ink technology. It produces durable prints that are bright and glossy with an unparalleled colour gamut and is designed to produce premium quality output, using minimum ink, with simple operation and fast job completion. The output speed and the ability of this amazing printer to so accurately colour match were unquestionably the main factors in our decision to purchase it.”
Peak Digital uses its new SC80600 to print vehicle signage, external shop signage, window and wall graphics with the printer getting a full daily workout, often seven days a week.
Robertson concluded, “The SC80600’s ability to print a much wider colour gamut means we can consistently and accurately match corporate colours, a major bonus for our customers. The machine also continuously runs unattended allowing operators to perform other tasks without the worry of checking the printer and despite its constant use, since we acquired it we have had no issues that have required technicians or operator intervention. Moving forward it’ll be hard to find a better large format signage printer than the SC80600 as the fact that we can so consistently meet customer demands in terms of colour matching and turnaround times makes it incredibly hard to beat and, in my opinion, the best printer in its class.”
