Epson today announced the launch of its commercial photo production printer, SureLab SL-D800 that has been developed for photo shops and those who want to expand their printing business, with a wider range of services for their customers, while minimising environmental impact.
The new printer is ideally suited to photo production businesses, independent photo shops, event photographers, minilabs, copy shops and self-service terminals, as well as businesses that need to print high-quality mixed print jobs, on demand, on a wide range of media and formats.
In order to improve users’ scope of business and meet ever-changing and increasingly creative customer demands, the SL-D800 has been designed with media flexibility in mind. It supports Glossy, Lustre and paper-based Matte; in roll widths that range from 89mm to 210mm, and lengths of 50mm to 1000mm. This is further complemented by an impressive production speed of 360 (15 x 10cm) photos per hour (PPH) and high print quality, with a wide colour gamut, deep blacks and superior gloss level.
Enhancing the SureLab D800’s cost-effectiveness, are its long service intervals and low maintenance requirements, which boosts productivity and ensures users can offer their customers a more consistent and reliable service. Also, power consumption and noise levels have been noticeably reduced thanks to sophisticated heater and fan management, in standby mode. This improved cost efficiency makes the already affordable SL-D800 an even more attractive commercial photo printing solution.
Jeroen van Beem, Director of Sales, Epson MEA, says “The SureLab SL-D800 builds on the success of its predecessor, the SL-D700, and all enhancements are in response to customer demand. The SL-D800 is compact (same size as the SL-D700), durable and built for speed, flexibility and high-quality commercial photo printing. It’s designed to last and fits seamlessly into the working environment thanks to the rigid, sturdy print tray and improved spindle design. Also, any downtime is significantly reduced due to the intuitive two-step roll change. Being able to provide the complete solution to our users is a major benefit, as we also supply Epson inks, paper and software support – which saves valuable time compared to dealing with multiple suppliers. It’s a welcome addition to the SureLab range.”
Whether used as a single unit, or as part of a very powerful production fleet, this commercial photo printer offers quality printing at a low total cost of ownership
