Epson SureColor SC-R5000 Resin Ink Printer

The SC-R5000 is Epson’s first foray into resin printing, using innovative new water-based inks to produce scratch-resistant results across an expansive range of media. 

“A large-format printer genuinely enhanced by its unique ink technology.”

Expect all the quality this leading brand is known for, but with the potential to open exciting new revenue streams. The SC-R5000 is a printer genuinely enhanced by its unique ink technology – capable of producing odourless prints that are perfect for sensitive spaces such as hospitals and schools and durable enough for outdoor installations. Best yet, the ink dries quickly, so lamination and same-day delivery can become real possibilities.

 “If you want the next step with Epson, this is it. The R5000 prints on an impressive variety of substrates, including textiles, wallpaper, films and more, so there are lots of new markets to explore!”

We’re especially impressed by the six colour inks – which means lower running costs than a machine that relies on eight or more colours yet still produces outstanding results. Epson states that three print technologies are responsible for consistent quality: halftoning, fully-optimised lookup tables and Micro Weave. Epson is a long known market-leading print quality expert brand, and this machine fits perfectly with that expectation.

“The Epson R5000 has been specially designed for reliable, high-quality colour output.”

Despite this machine offering new innovative resin technology, you can be assured of enjoying the Epson quality, support and performance you have come to expect. And we would be happy to set up a demonstration for you, and we think you’ll be impressed! If you’d like to know more or see the Epson in action – give us a call: 0345 1300 662

What the manufacturer says:


The SureColor SC-R5000 and SC-R5000L are Epson's first resin ink large-format printers, offering colour matching consistency, quick drying and scratch resistance. Printing on a wide range of substrates such as vinyl, banner, textile, canvas, wallpaper and film, it combines accuracy, media flexibility and reliability.

The innovative ultrasonic detector reduces the risk of printhead failure, while the NVT (nozzle verification technology) automatically compensates should any nozzle become blocked. User replaceable printheads continue to maximise production time, as these can easily be replaced – with no special tools – within 60 minutes. Plus, the SCR5000L model includes a bulk-ink solution, supported by a 'hot-swap' function.

With the SureColor SC-R5000(L) you can expand from printing traditional signage applications to a broad portfolio of banners, wallcoverings, vinyl, film and textiles. The Advanced Auto Tension Control ensures highly accurate media feeding, resulting in exceptional tiling. This consistent repeatability provides seamless results while also saving on material wastage and installation time. The printers' efficient drying and curing process means users can laminate immediately with no gassing required. This enables same-day delivery and faster turnaround times.

High image quality is achieved by three Epson print technologies – Halftoning, fully optimised LUT and Micro Weave – reducing graininess and banding. Fully controlled heating and curing technology, combined with the long-life PrecisionCore printhead, provide reliable colour consistency across the entire length of the print run. This avoids the need for reprints due to mismatched colours. Stay in control Starting a printing job and monitoring progress is simple, thanks to a user-friendly 4.3-inch touch panel screen. The screen provides intuitive operation, and a signal lamp for easy status checks. Epson Production Monitor is one of the services offered on Epson Cloud Solution PORT, which is a cloud-based system, and enables the monitoring of equipment across several sites, or several printers on one site, to assist the control of production.

Thanks to Epson's UltraChrome RS ink, the SC-R5000 Series printers offer wide substrate support, making them the ideal choice for signage and pro-graphics printers, design agencies and wallpaper, canvas and photo production plants. The odourless water-based ink means printed applications can be used in sensitive environments such as schools, hospitals and hotels, as well as outdoor applications that require extreme durability.
