How do you re-invent the roll-to-roll solvent printer? You start by utilizing over a decade of printer
design, while creating a dedicated team of engineers and customers working together to rethink everything.
The result? Three unique signage printers focused on value, performance and print quality.
Introducing the all-new Epson® SureColor S-Series
Incorporating our most advanced imaging technology, including our exotic MicroPiezo® TFP® print head
designed exclusively for use with our all-new Epson UltraChrome® solvent inks1, the SureColor S-Series
could quite possibly be the most versatile line of signage printers ever developed.
This is the way solvent printing should be.

Three-year durability is an estimate based on accelerated testing by Epson according to ISO 18930, on 3M™ Controltac™ IJ180-10 film in a vertical display orientation in simulated outdoor display conditions. Actual
durability can vary significantly. The estimate does not include prints made using Orange, White or Metallic Silver inks. EPSON MAKES NO WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES
OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AS TO IMAGE DURABILITY ON ANY MEDIA OR IN ANY CONDITIONS. EPSON HAS NO LIABILITY OF ANY KIND FOR FADING OR ANY OTHER
CHANGE IN A PRINT NO MATTER HOW DISPLAYED. Some media providers, such as 3M and Avery®, do warrant image durability for these Epson printers; see the provider’s website for details.
See proimaging.epson.com for Epson tips on enhancing durability.
4 For one printer using the standard ink set in a room of at least 180 m3 with a minimum ventilation coefficient of 2.2. For more information, see the MSDS sheets at proimaging.epson.com
5 The print head is a maintenance part which the user is responsible to replace when necessary. However, Epson covers head replacement while the printer is under the Epson PreferredSM Limited Warranty and under any
Preferred Plus Plan (limited or unlimited number of head replacements, depending on the Preferred Plus Plan purchased). The life of the print head will vary depending on the user's print volume, print patterns and heater
temperature for print settings. Doing proper user maintenance of the print head will help prolong its life.

If a print head should ever fail, the Epson SureColor
S50670 and S70670 can continue to operate on a
single print head until proper maintenance can be
done. This dramatically minimizes downtime.
Due to the extreme print speeds of the Epson
SureColor S50670, this model is capable of sensing
a head strike during printing and warning the
operator, reducing downtime and wasted media.
