The SureColor P5070 Inkjet Printer from Epson is a 17" (432mm) large format printer that is an ideal choice for professional photographic printing, creating gallery quality fine art prints, or proofing and packaging design. With an ultra-high resolution and impressive colour gamut, the P5070 offers outstanding performance while being versatile, reliable and easy to maintain.
It features 4 paper paths and supports a wide range of standard and specialist media in roll and sheet formats up to 1.5mm thick, from basic bond to photo and fine-art paper, transparent film to translucent back-lit, canvas to specialist synthetics. It accepts roll media with fast spindle-less mounting, automatic skew adjustment, and a high-speed auto-cutter which will cut most stocks including canvas.
Edge-to-edge printing is also possible on both sheet and roll media and the P5070 will print full borderless on roll stocks. The printer ships with one roll media adaptor set that supports rolls with either 2” or 3” cores. Additional sets can be ordered separately for environments that involve high volume work and/or multiple media types. Optional roll paper belts are also available to help maintain tension in rolls during storage. A barcode based media management system helps track consumption on individual rolls while also facilitating rapid exchange with automatic re-configuration for different media types.
It uses a PrecisionCore® Thin Film (TFP) head with Variable Sized Droplet Technology™ to produce high resolution images up to 2880 x 1440dpi with superior fidelity and tonal gradation. Micro-fine drop-on-demand nozzles enable superior dot shaping with reduced overspray, more precise placement and volume/density control. This is complemented by an advanced LUT (Look-Up-Table) and an 11 cartridge supply system with automatic Matte / Photo Black switching for optimal dynamic range on different media types. A special coating on the head works in conjunction with self-monitoring, cleaning, and alignment systems to ensure predictable, consistent and reliable output with minimal user maintenance.
The P5070 uses Epson UltraChrome® HDX all-pigment aqueous ink for accurate colour with an enhanced gamut, Dmax and image durability. The printer uses a 10 colour ink configuration with two levels of black, a choice of a third black or alternative Violet ink for outstanding colour and B&W prints with up to 99% PANTONE® coverage. An optional SpectroProofer (ILS30) is available for precision colour management and ISO standard proofing work. Ink cartridges are pressurised to ensure maximum output precision and feature an enhanced capacity for extended operation and with a reduced cost per print.
Designed for professional and commercial applications, it features fast and flexible networking facilities (1000Base-T), and has a large 2.7" colour LCD screen with an easy to follow menu system and in-built help. Configure the printer remotely and enjoy the included driver software that is compatible with most operating systems.
