Epson announces SureColor V1060 - first UV desktop printer

Epson has announced the release of the SureColor V1060, its first-ever A4 UV desktop printer. This new printer is ideal for customising merchandise and promotional items on demand, transforming the items into unique products.

The SC-V1060 enables direct printing onto various materials, including acrylic, metals, wood, and canvas, with superior image quality, colour accuracy and finely detailed text.

"The SureColor V1060 is an innovative printer and a game-changer in the world of UV printing. We are excited to see this affordable solution opening up new creative horizons for retailers, designers and small businesses,” said Shuhei Sato, product manager of Professional Print Solutions Division at Epson Australia.

The compact printer supports substrates up to 297mm x 210mm (A4), and up to 70mm in thickness, allowing users to print on thicker materials and objects.

UV curable UltraChrome UV ink with CMYK+White+Varnish provides a vibrant output on both rigid and flexible materials with Epson Precision Dot and Variable Sized Dot Technology (VSDT); additional White ink and Varnish can be applied as a layer or spot colour for enhanced image expression and finish quality.

The printer is compact (W699 x D699 x H426mm) – enabling it to fit neatly into retail environments where space is limited. Additional space savings with a built-in air filtration system and as no space is required at the printer's rear means it can be easily situated against a wall, allowing the printer to run clean, cool and safely.

The SC-V1060 features an intuitive 4.3” touchscreen, a user-friendly interface and a fully automated cleaning system. It comes with a 140ml replaceable ink pack system operation, enhancing productivity and reducing waste and mess.
