The SureColor V7000 combines superior image quality with enhanced production flexibility
For sign makers looking to produce UV output, Epson Australia has launched its first flatbed printer. The SureColor V7000 builds on the success of Epson’s award-winning SureColor S-Series range of signage printers, delivering flexible production with truly outstanding image quality and a reduced running cost.
Key features of the SC-V7000
• Supports media up to 80 mm thick
• 1.25 x 2.5 m bed with multi-zone vacuum
• Integrated ioniser and media height sensor
• 8c + White + Varnish UltraChrome UV ink set
• Outstanding colour accuracy, gamut and gradation
• Quality to suit the most demanding applications including fine art
• Production up to 15 m2/hr with up to three ink layers in a single pass
• On-site CoverPlus up to five years with periodic maintenance included

The SC-V7000 has been designed to meet the needs of today’s signage businesses with flexible high quality production and a reduced total cost of ownership (TCO). It will print on a wide range of substrates including paper, film, CorefluteTM, vinyl, canvas, aluminium and acrylic. It produces image quality to suit the most exacting applications including signage, POS/POP, premium packaging, décor, custom cabinetry and even fine art.
This robust and versatile printer incorporates eight Epson MicroPiezo printheads. Each head features 1,440 microfine nozzles with variable size dots as small as 4 pl. Working in conjunction with a new 10 colour Ultrachrome UV ink set, it will produce images with a very wide gamut and surprisingly fine gradation, sufficient to satisfy the most demanding customers. White and Varnish can even be applied as spot colours for enhanced detail and finish.
The SC-V7000 offers a 1.25 m x 2.50 m print area that supports media up to 80 mm thick and 50 kg/m2. It features a vacuum system with 4 independently adjustable zones for flexible operation. Integrated layout pins and a height sensor on the head carriage enable easy media setting while an ioniser ensures reliable and consistent output. The print heads are mounted in a staggered array that enables up to three layers to be applied in a single pass (White + Colour + Varnish) for fast and efficient production.
Epson has ensured that the SureColor V7000 is cost-effective to install and efficient to run. It is supplied complete with Epson Edge Print RIP software and Flatbed Controller software. It can be managed from the desktop using Epson Edge Dashboard and supports Epson’s new Cloud Solution PORT service. Installation is included in the purchase price and it ships with on-site CoverPlus that can be extended out to five years. Unlike many printers of its type Epson even includes periodic maintenance.
The SureColor V7000 will be available in Australia from November with RRPs expected to start from AUD $129,995 excluding GST and in New Zealand from NZD $146,995 excluding GST.
