Epson SureColor S-Series solvent printers win top accolades from Keypoint Intelligence
SC-S40600, SC-S60600 and SC-S80600 all recognised with awards by the expert technical judging panel
6 November 2017– Keypoint Intelligence (previously known as Buyers Lab), the world’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging software, hardware and services, has recognised Epson for the innovation and remarkable colour accuracy shown by its range of SureColor S-Series solvent-based signage printers.
All three current models in the series – the SC-S40600, SC-S60600 and SC-S80600 – received BLI Pick Awards at the 2017 SGIA Expo:
Epson SureColor S40600– Outstanding entry-level CMYK 54"/64" eco-solvent/latex device
Epson SureColor S60600– Outstanding high-production CMYK 54"/64" eco-solvent/latex device
Epson SureColor S80600– Outstanding gamut expansion 54"/64" eco-solvent/latex device
“Keypoint Intelligence worked very closely with Epson during the testing process, and all three Epson SureColor S-Series solvent printers delivered the lowest Delta E measurements of all the devices tested,” said David Sweetnam, director of research and lab services, EMEA/Asia, at Keypoint Intelligence. “These awards give special recognition to manufacturers and products that perform above their peers in our exhaustive lab tests, and all three S-Series models did extremely well in our tests – providing accuracy that any colour-critical print shop would appreciate.”
Since launching its eco-solvent/latex test program in 2016, BLI has tested a great many printers in Europe and the US. These inaugural BLI Pick awards give special recognition to the best performing hardware and software products reviewed by BLI’s team of expert technicians and analysts.
“We’ve always known just how good our SureColor SC-S printers are for the sign and display market, with sales figures that suggest our customers know this as well,” says Chris Davies, product manager, Epson Europe. “So we’re very happy indeed that a testing organisation with the stature of Buyers Lab has seen fit to recognise not just one but all three of our SC-S Series printers with rewards for technical excellence.”
Epson’s professional imaging solutions are designed with the most advanced technology to achieve the highest quality results, and our SureColor S-Series printers are an excellent example of that. With class-leading substrate-control and an industry-leading colour gamut, they are among the fastest in their class, offering outstanding quality and value for customers.
