Epson America Inc. (Booth 617) is debuting a contract-quality proofing system designed to improve how package designers and flexographic and gravure printing professionals produce packaging mock-ups and proofs. The Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 uses aqueous-based white ink printing technology and Epson's latest achievements in high-resolution inkjet technology, including Epson UltraChrome HDR White Ink. UltraChrome HDR White Ink introduces Organic Hollow Resin Particle Technology, which forces light to randomly scatter, producing the illusion of seeing the color white.
This innovative approach to producing the color white results in an extremely high white ink density, as well as the ability for custom white color toning, reports Epson. It also provides professional short-term color stability for mission-critical color proofing on a range of new substrates including inkjet coated transparent and metallic films. Epson UltraChrome HDR White Ink isa water-based resin particle void of any known carcinogens.
Capable of printing directly on both inkjet coated clear and metallic films, in roll or cut sheet, up to 24 inches wide, the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 can proof virtually any size print job. Epson America worked closely with CGS, EFI, GMG, Esko Artwork, and Kodak to ensure their RIP and workflow software takes full advantage of the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 technology.
