Epson Australia has launched two new high-speed, large format printers for architects, marking the global brand’s expansion of their T-Series product line to the low-to-mid-range CAD, AEC, GIS and POS markets. The two new wireless models, the 24-inch SureColor T3160 and the 36-inch SureColor T5160 are available as desktop or floorstanding models, are easy to set up, and combine a compact sleek design with fast and reliable printing performance.

From printing blueprints and line drawings to signage and more up to 2,400 dpi, with precise detail and commercial-grade reliability, the highly versatile SureColor T3160 and SureColor T5160 printers will assist architecture professionals across a wider range of segments including engineering, CAD, GIS, education, corporate, home and small office. The printer is particularly ideal for small companies that have multipurpose print requirements in a limited workspace.

Key features of Epson’s new large format wireless printers include unique auto-switching functionality enabling the printers to swap between large format roll paper and A4/A3 size paper, without users having to touch the printer; PrecisionCore MicroTFP printhead offering Precision Droplet Control for outstanding clarity; Nozzle Verification Technology to automatically detect and adjust nozzle condition; fast print speeds producing accurate A1 prints in 31 seconds for the SC-T5160 and 34 seconds for the SC-T3160; integrated wireless and Wi-Fi Direct connectivity allowing users to seamlessly print from tablets and smartphones; new 4.3-inch colour LCD touchscreen with simple and intuitive menu control and navigation; and next-generation high-capacity UltraChrome XD2 pigment inks delivering durable archival prints with brilliant colour and crisp lines on different paper types.

The SureColor T3160 and SureColor T5160 printers feature a compact, clean design with an ultra-small footprint and sleek, minimalist design; high-capacity cartridges up to 50ml colour and 80ml black reducing need for frequent replacement; and versatile media handling accommodating rolls up to 24- and 36-inches and up to 50 sheets of A4 and A3 paper through the auto sheet feeder with autoswitch, as well as cut-sheet papers up to A1 (24”) or A0 (36”).

Epson Australia’s GM sales & marketing of their business division, Craig Heckenberg said, “The SureColor T3160 and T5160 are designed specifically for the technical community including architects, engineers and designers who are looking for a fully functional and compact printer that fits neatly in their office. These new printers also produce quality colour posters and displays, and they enable users to wirelessly produce accurate and vibrant prints from tablets and smartphones virtually anywhere.”

Both printers come with a comprehensive 1-year on-site warranty and CoverPlus service packages are extendable up to 3 years.

The SureColor T3160 and SureColor T5160 will be available in Australia from September 2018.
