Buying a large format CAD printer is never a purchase that is taken lightly by an organisation. Architects, civil engineering designers and technical/machine designers are always looking for accuracy, speed and quality from these printers to make the most of their investment. But deciding what you want in a printer and actually finding one that meets your expectations are two different things.
Let’s look at the points to consider before buying a CAD printer and see why the Epson T-Series large format printers tick all the right boxes.
Cheap isn’t always best
It may be tempting to buy a less costly printer but a long term perspective may be worth considering before making this investment. Reliability and precision performance are critical factors to consider when choosing a CAD so it is a smart decision to opt for a printer that might cost a little more but offers great output and uninterrupted service.
For instance, the Epson Surecolor SC – T 3270 yields 120 A1 high quality prints per hour. It has superior 5-colour UltraChrome® XD pigment inks and is developed using Epson’s proprietary technology which include the latest advancements in performance imaging.
Image quality is a key factor
Image quality, colour reproduction and durability of ink are important points to consider before buying a CAD printer for your organisation. The most critical attribute is accuracy of prints, so consider a printer that gives high levels of precision. Also make it a point to get a detailed understanding of the printer’s capabilities as well as how deftly it handles different media.
The Epson Surecolor T-Series wide-format printer range comes with next-generation PrecisionCore MicroTFP printheads which offer Precision Droplet Control for outstanding photographic images, precise lines and crisp text, while utilizing durable Epson UltraChrome XD2 archival pigment ink technology.
Better compatibility brings in better collaboration
Space, IT infrastructure and your organization’s preferred printing size are important factors to consider when buying a CAD. Check the compatibility of the printer with your current operating system and ensure that the printer you are considering is user-friendly so it can be operated by anyone in the organisation with an awareness of its basic functions.
The Surecolor range of CAD printers support Adobe® PostScript® support, 320 GB HDD as well as HP-GL/2/RTL ensuring they will be a versatile addition to your office hardware. In addition, they allow you to print from virtually anywhere in the office with integrated wireless and router-free Wi-Fi Direct Printing. Network security and encryption features ensure confidential information is protected in a shared office space. Further, Epson’s T series CAD printers** require minimal cleaning and maintenance and even work seamlessly in conditions that are traditionally dusty such as construction sites.
Whether it is precision or performance, the Epson’s Surecolor range is capable of producing accurate technical drawings, graphic posters and machine design sketches at high speeds. What’s more, it can grow with the needs of an organisation, making it a smart and sensible purchasing choice.
