The world class leader in printing speed in the 21st century
Well-reputed IP-4500Mk-2/4010Mk-2 is so advanced as to improve the printing quality by the
enhanced printer head attached color plofiles for vivid color and provide more kinds media.
In addition, it takes less time to print out in the high-quality mode by about 2 times faster
movement of the new printer head than the former.
Oil based pigment-enabled lightfastness, water resistance, and unprecedented high speed.
IP4500Mk-2/4010Mk-2 offers a new industrial standard for inkjet printers.
Oil based pigment-enabled weatherability and unimaginable high speed
Oil based pigment-enabled weatherability
When genuine PVC is used for IP-4500Mk-2/4010Mk-2, the pigment ink enables non-laminated Adhesive
Vinyl to be displayed for six months to one year. This type of printer meets professional needs with high
weatherability, maintaining high image quality the same as watercolor pigment print.
Worldwide class-fastest speed of printing*
*720dpi and approx.18sqm /hr for A0-size color printing
The class-fastest printing speed of IP4500Mk-2/4010Mk-2 generates the superior productivity and allows
the printer to be in a leading position of the imaging industry. Even in the high quality mode, IP-4500Mk2/4010Mk-2 maintains the superior productivity by printing out an A0 sheet(1sqm) in 3 minutes.
Wide coverage of media and low running cost
IP-4500Mk-2/4010Mk-2 can print out on low-cost coated paper, glossy paper, PVC, white PET, back-lit
film, inflammable cloth, outdoor cloth, scrim vinyl, soft cloth, and thin soft cloth.
Support for the genuine RIP, "ONYX Postershop™"
IP-4500Mk-2/4010Mk-2 is equipped with ONYX Postershop TM, the print software supporting PostScript
3.Onyx Postershop™ is optional for Network model.
It is possible to upgrade to Pro or Sever Version.

Excellent Quality
Super High Speed
Outstanding weatherability and stable high image quality. New standards for Inkjet printers!
Enabling non-laminated Adhesive Vinyl to be displayed
for six months to one year.
High weatherability by the use of oil based pigment ink
The oil based pigment ink features high water resistance and lightfastness,
allowing non-laminated SII's genuine Adhesive Vinyl to be displayed for about
six months to one year*. It realizes brilliant output durable for outdoor
advertisement such as signboards, as well as indoor display such as posters.
Moreover, the pigment ink demonstrates its weatherability on the outdoor
media that cannot allow the post image processing, such as outdoor banner.
The range of its use for outdoor advertisement is expanded.
High resolution of real 720dp x 720dpi.
Graceful and stable image quality by piezo print method
High resolution of 720dpi x 720dpi is achieved without any correction. Piezo
print method offers beautiful, stable graphic-arts-quality output using fine dots
which never look granular. In addition, 8-passes mode enhance the image
quality. Also New 8 passes mode is as fast as Former 4 passes mode.
Outstanding weatherability and stable high image quality. New standards for Inkjet printers!
SII's Super-wide piezo head offers
superior printing quality
Quick-drying time because of Oil based ink
The SII-developed super-wide piezo head for large format printers is so
advanced that the enhanced Super-wide piezo head can achieve superior
printing quality. The Super-wide piezo head is about 72mm wide, equipped
with 3,060 nozzles in total (510 nozzles for one color by six colors). The Superwide head contributes to high-speed printing. Moreover, the piezo method
uses fine ink droplets to produce precise prints all the time, and reduces both
ink consumption and waste ink. Specially, the oil based ink printer reduces
much waste ink. so it keeps running cost lower.
Since the oil based ink allows printouts to be dried and taken up immediately
after printed, continuous or large-volume printing can be accomplished. No
equipment such as a fan is needed to be dried for the printouts.

Support for SCSI to transfer data at a high speed
IP-4500Mk-2/4010Mk-2 supports SCSI, which enables high-speed printing of
data in addition to super high-speed printing. Even in the draft mode, the
interface allows for high-speed printing.
Six ink colors (yellow, magenta,
cyanogen, black, light magenta,
and light cyanogen) are used. Even
human's delicate skin can be recreated by photo-quality printing.
This feature provides optimum
output for professionals who pursue
coloring as closer to the original
image as possible.

*Durability may vary with the users' environment and operating conditions. Also, SII does
not guarantee the durability (photo, quality test, outdoor direct-sunlight exposure test)
No need to address wrinkling
Clean ink with little odor
Unlike solvent ink, pigment with very little odor is employed as ink material. No
equipment such as an expensive air exhauster is required.
Water based printers usually generate wrinkling, which are wrinkles emerging
on papers during solid print. But the oil based printer doesn't generate
wrinkling. The oil based pigment-type ink is available for laminating processing,
pasting of papers to panels, and even water-filled paper hanger.
The world's class-fastest as a pigment printer.
Super high-speed printing of 18 sqm / hr at A0 true
Various printing modes for each of Applications
IP-4500Mk-2/4010Mk-2 achieves the world's fastest print speed in its class of
about 18 sqm / hr (200 sqf / hr) at true 720dpi, which is an unprecedented
speed for pigment printers. Even in the high quality mode, it produces15sqm/h
(180 sqf / hr) A0 printing at true 720 dpi. The advent of IP-4550/4010 brings
about a great impact on the new-generation inkjet printers.
