Introduction
The aim of this guide is to assist you with delivering a successful demonstration of the SureColor SC-S50600 and SC-S70600
printers whilst conveying the end-user benefits associated with the products. As always, the key to delivering a professional
demonstration lies in the preparations before the event. This guide will assist you not only with the technicalities of performing
a demonstration, but with advice on how to present, prepare and deliver.
This guide expands upon the ‘How to demonstrate guide’ for the SC-S30600 and SC-S30610. This guide will focus on
the SureColor SC-S50600/50610 and the SC-S70600/70610 printers, which are sold in Europe in two versions. Both have
exactly the same features, benefits and performance so for the remainder of this guide, the SC-S50600/50610 and
SC-S70600/70610 will be referred to as either the SC-S50600 or the SC-S70600.

What are the SC-S50600 Key Features?
The SC-S50600 represents the fastest and most productive printer within the range offering print speeds in excess
of 51m2/h.
The printer is sold as a 5 colour model with CMYK ink plus white and a 4 colour model with CMYK inks. The printer
doesn’t support the ability to change between 4 and 5 colour so customers will need to decide which model to choose at
the time of purchase.

What are the SC-S70600 Key Features?
Sitting alongside the SC-S30600 and the SC-S50600 printers, the SC-S70600 has been designed by Epson to offer
commercial printers and sign makers the most versatile, high quality printer on the market.
The printer is available as a 8 colour model with CMYK and Light cyan, Light magenta, Light black and orange. The
10 colour model supports the additional white and metallic silver inks. The printer doesn’t support the ability to change
between 8 and 10 colour so customers will need to decide which model to choose at the time of purchase.
What is the SC-S70600 Proposition?
The Epson SureColor SC-S70600 is Epson’s first large format printer to support white and metallic ink simultaneously, enabling
creative print makers, specialist sign makers and professional display printers to expand their service portfolios and produce
high-quality, creative, indoor and outdoor signage, quickly and with minimal environmental impact.

Prepare for a Successful Demonstration
Please ensure the installation space around the Epson SureColor series printer has enough room for customers to explore
the key hardware features. Epson recommends that the demonstration space includes enough space at the rear to view the
production features that demonstrate ease of use.

Before any planned demonstration, please ensure that the SureColor Series printer has been installed and set up in keeping
with the Epson ‘Setup Guide’. For example, the ink system should be primed and ready for print and the performance of the
printer should be verified before the commencement of a demonstration.
When planning demonstrations for the SC-S70600 ensure that the cartridges are shaken
each day to safeguard against ink sedimentation. The recommended daily maintenance for
the SC-S70600 includes shaking the cartridges vigorously for 15–20 seconds. The printer
will display a message on the control panel each day to remind the operator.
In a demonstration environment it is recommended to keep a small log file to record
this operation.
Make sure that consumables such as media, ink and maintenance ink bottles are available
in case replacements are required during the demonstration period or in the event that the user would like to view these items
individually. A full list of consumable items can be found in the appendix of the ‘Epson SureColor Series User Guide’.
Have a selection of pre-printed samples to hand to illustrate the wide range of medias supported by the SureColor printer.
Ensure that the chosen printer interfaces, either USB or Ethernet, are working as expected by sending a test job prior to
customer arrival. If possible, obtain the customer’s print sample artwork prior to the demonstration. This will allow for any issues
such as missing fonts and halftones to be addressed and rectified prior to the demonstration.
Ensure both the printer and the surrounding areas are clean and clear of empty ink cartridges, old printed samples and general
waste material. It’s quite typical that during regular use print samples are either placed on top or next to the printer which can
quickly end up obscuring the product entirely.
Ensure that all product information such as brochures, price lists, consumable information, sales support material are available
for the product being demonstrated.

Introducing the SureColor S-Series
The SureColor S-Series printers have been designed to meet the requirements of the indoor and outdoor signage
market. Signage applications include everything from billboards to high-quality point of sale materials such as backlit displays
and high-quality vehicle wraps.
For that reason Epson has designed a range of print quality modes from high production to high-quality mode. These modes
are defined by the number of passes.
The tables below will assist you to achieve the very best results by combining print modes with applications.
What are the typical print modes and resolutions?

What to expect from the print modes
For high-quality colour printing print modes such as 12 and 8 pass are recommended. For basic signage, or signage viewed at
greater viewing distances print modes such as 2 and 4 pass can be used.
You can use 8 or 12 pass print modes with the expectation of producing the highest quality. At this mode you can observe
smooth gradients, uniform solid colours and sharp halftones.
9
When printing at 2 pass mode, it will be possible to observe banding and when printing 4 and 6 pass modes, a gradual
improvement can be observed.
Banding can exhibit itself in many ways but typically it’s observed as unevenness in tone. The extent of which will depend on
the actual image itself, large areas of solid colour will tend to show more imperfections than a busy halftone image.
The degree of unevenness can be minimised or accentuated by choice of substrate, printer setup, colour profile and settings
within the RIP software.
The illustration below is a guide to expected results.

What will affect print quality?
Although the SureColor User Guide offers a complete explanation of printer operations, there are some settings, illustrated in
the table below that will have an immediate effect on overall print quality. Use the list below as a basic check list before printing
customer files.
Substrate Setup
Platen gap
Print Quality Setup
Nozzle check
Substrate feed setting
Print head alignment
Tension setting
Accurate colour profile
If you are printing on commonly used or widely available substrate, search the Epson Media Qualification Program site.
Epson are currently developing a comprehensive library of quality colour profiles which include optimal substrate settings.
If they carry the Epson approved stamp, you can use them with confidence. http://epson.color-base.com/
If you cannot find your substrate within the Epson Media Qualification Program, enlist the support of the media provider. It’s
common for media manufacturers to supply profiles for the major software and printer manufacturers.
If your prints look over inked or under saturated, this is a strong indication that a better colour profile is required.
Take the time to set up the substrates that are used most frequently. Following the steps in ‘Substrate Setup’ on the SureColor
printer will result in the best possible results for each substrate.
10
Preparing for the next demonstration
On completion of each demonstration always perform printer maintenance as outlined in the user guide. This will ensure the
print head is kept in optimum condition and save preparation time for the next demonstration.
Any printer using inks with heavy particles such as metallic silver or white will benefit from regular use.
Regular use will stop sedimentation in the ink cartridges and ink tubes.
In a demonstration environment it may not be possible to use the printer every day. So, if the printer is expected to have periods
of inactivity for more than 7 days please use the Epson cleaning cartridges to ensure the printer’s long term reliability.
If you plan to use the printer every few days, then performing the daily maintenance will suffice in keeping the printer in good
working order. Part of the daily maintenance is to vigorously shake the cartridges for 15–20 seconds every day.
If performing maintenance during the demonstration, please present and follow the SureColor User Guide. It will ensure that the
customer understands that maintenance procedures are well documented and accessible to their operators.
As an example of good maintenance practice, while cleaning the print head you should demonstrate that the areas between
the nozzles surface (indicated by the arrows) should be cleaned but the nozzles themselves should not be wiped as this can
cause damage to the print head. This is a common mistake to new users.
When demonstrating maintenance, always use the tools and consumables which are included in the maintenance options
listed below.

Loading Media
Loading and unloading media from the SureColor series offers an opportunity to highlight the ease of use and productivity of the
printer. During operations it will be possible to highlight how a single operator can load substrate, correctly position and access
operational features in a considered, efficient manner.
Recommended media loading method
Loosen the roll holder fixing screws (1) and adjust the roll holders (2) to accommodate the substrate. Try to position the holders
at equal distances from the centre.
If you notice that the right holder handle shaft is not visible, rotate the holder forward until it stops.

Align the left-hand edge of the substrate to the appropriate black bar. Using the left-hand ‘Jack’, lift the substrate to allow easy
insertion of the left-hand roll holder which allows for spindleless operation. The jack has been designed to make substrate
loading quick, easy and consistent.
Tighten for roll holder fixing screws and repeat the process on the right hand side. Rotate the right hand holder’s handle in the
direction indicated below to ensure the roll holder is fully inserted.
16
Open the media loading lever and insert the media into the printer. The media loading lever has been designed to be accessible
from either the front or the rear of the printer allowing for quicker substrate loading operations.
Using the media drive switch can aid the feeding of heavy or difficult to handle substrates.
Insert the media past the rollers and begin to adjust the position of the pressure rollers.
There are two types of rollers, low and high pressure. There are two high pressure rollers in total and they are located at either
end of the printer. They are easily recognisable as they are coloured light green. These rollers are used when producing prints
with ink layering. e.g. when printing colour ink on top of white, or colour ink on top of metallic. The high pressure rollers enable
the printer to accurately feed substrate back into the printer.
When printing without the need for ink layering the high pressure rollers are not required and should be moved outside the
printable area. This is because the high pressure rollers can mark soft surface substrates.
When printing with ink layering low pressure rollers should be made inactive, as back feeding the substrate with ink on the
surface may result in marking the printed surface or depositing ink on the rollers.
17
When arranging the pressure rollers, inactive rollers should be positioned away from the black labels.
To utilise the pressure rollers make sure they are in alignment with the black labels.
Any pressure rollers outside the alignment of the black label will not apply pressure to the substrate when the media loading
lever is secured.
To ensure good substrate feeding, position low pressure rollers 5mm from the edges of the substrate and high pressure rollers
10mm from the edges.
When ready, lower the media loading lever to hold the media in place. All SureColor S-Series printers come with the ability to
backward feed the substrate. This feature has three key advantages.
• Auto de-skewing, even after media loading lever has been closed.
• Optimising tension control for various types of media.
• Allows the operator to reduce waste by back feeding substrate.
18
Finally, attach the media holding plates at either side of the media. Position the plates so that the edges of the media are in the
centres of the round holes. Then slide the plates until the white line is visible in the square window and push the plates down to
lock them in place. Close the front cover, your media is now loaded.
At this stage, the SureColor will automatically ask the operator to confirm the media setting via the control panel.
Productivity Tools
Ink mark sensor
As part of the Epson SureColor Series printers efforts to enhance productivity an operator can efficiently set up new substrates
with optimal quality parameters via the automatic adjustments of this printer.
Demonstrate the ease of operation through the control panel by selecting ‘Media setup>Customize Settings’ and performing
an auto adjustment of either ‘Head Alignment’ or ‘Feed Adjustment’.
Epson LFP Remote Panel 2
If you have more than one SureColor S-Series printer, you can use the Epson LFP Remote Panel 2 software to perform
software upgrades and copying media set up and calibration data from one device to another. This productivity tool enables
you to efficiently duplicate media customisation settings on each device thus reducing printing downtime.
19
User Maintenance
Only light maintenance is required for the Epson SureColor S-Series printers to ensure consistent high-quality output. Aside
from general cleaning of the platen and pressure rollers an operator will only need to perform quick maintenance operations
approximately every 6 months.
If requested, demonstrate the principles involved with maintenance by selecting maintenance via the SureColor Series control
panel then select ‘Head Maintenance’.
If the OK button is pressed the print head will move to the cleaning position on the left hand side of the printer. There are three
operations that can be performed during this time.
Flushing Pad replacement, the wiper cleaner replacement and manual wiper cleaning.
Flushing pad replacement
Wiper cleaner replacement
Wiper removal for cleaning
Full maintenance details can be found in the ‘Epson SureColor User Guide’.
Due to simple accessibility and ease of use, maintenance of the Epson SureColor S-Series can be performed with confidence
by the end user rather relying on service providers.
A good tip for continued reliable operations is to leave the printer powered on. When the printer is in sleep mode it uses
very little power and will allow for auto cleaning cycles to operate. It is advised to set ‘periodical cleaning’ to ‘light’ and set
to every 4–6 hours.
If the printer is unused for 7 days or more it is recommended that the ink is discharged and replaced by cleaning fluid.
It is important that the cartridges are removed and shaken every day to ensure the ink pigments avoid sedimentation.
Use ‘Ink Refresh’ option in the control panel if uneven colour is noticed on White or Metallic prints.
20
Let’s Print
Epson has provided prepared samples that can be used to form part of an effective demonstration to show the printer’s
capabilities with the minimum of technicalities. i.e. all colour management and print options are already embedded into the
print file. All that’s required is to ‘download’ the file to the printer.
For that purpose, Epson have supplied some basic software to assist.

Q – In which conditions can I back feed the media and how?
A – If you need to back feed the media ensure the printed surface is completely dry. Press the Media Feeding button and use
the backward button of the control panel to back feed the media. Thanks to the Automatic Feeding Unit, the media will be
rolled back.
Q – I can create up to 30 personalised media. Can I personalise the media name as desired?
A – Improvements to the Control Panel interface allow you to personalise media names. This can be done from the control
panel or from the LFP Remote Panel 2 software.
Q – What additional options are available for the new Epson SureColor S-Series?
A – The Epson SureColor S-Series has two additional options:
Heavy roll media system – up to 80kg with a maximum diameter of up to 30cm. This option can be purchased by
customers using the larger media rolls.
Additional drying unit can be purchased to increase drying speed and efficiency on specific media. This ‘option’ is
provided as standard for the SureColor SC-S50600 and SC-S50610.
Q – I don’t have any of the mentioned media in the print sample chart, can I use other types of media?
A – If you use alternative media, we cannot guarantee the resulting print quality, even though the SureColor S-Series printer
supports a wide range of substrates, the print files have already been optimised for the pre-defined media.
Q – What are the advantages of the ink mark sensor for the customer?
A – The ink mark sensor allows the Epson SureColor S-Series to automatically perform standard adjustments such as paper
feed, Bi-D and Uni-D alignment for any type of media. You no longer need to read adjustment patches and input correction
values to ensure high quality output levels across a variety of media.
