Introducing the all-new SureColor P9560, the next generation of wide-format printing—only from Epson.
From professional photography to proofing and graphic design, the SureColor P9560 was built from the ground-up to uniquely cater to the full spectrum of creative needs. Featuring all-new UltraChrome® PRO12 Ink, the SureColor P9560 captures every detail with unparalleled colour brilliance2 and accuracy. And, with a new 2.6″ PrecisionCore® printhead, you get unmatched image quality at speeds up to 4 times faster than our previous generation1.
Welcome to the future of professional imaging.
The SureColor P9560 is a 44″ (1,118mm) Large Format Printer that is designed for premium photo, fine art, proofing & packaging design. It supports a wide range of roll and sheet based media and features an all new PrecisionCore MicroTFP print head with Variable Sized Droplet Technology™ for output with superior resolution, gradations and colour density. It uses the new UltraChrome® Pro12 all-pigment aqueous ink for quality colour and premium B&W output that is consistent, predictable and durable. The SC-P9560 cartridges feature an extra-large capacity for extended operation with a low cost per print due to the new PrecisionCore printhead and reduced running costs. The printer also includes new sub tanks so you will not run out of ink during a print job again4. The printer ships with a fabric retractable output bin for cut sheets as well as an optional Auto-Take-Up system for continuous roll to roll production. An optional HDD is available for efficient workgroup operation with print server and reprint functionality along with an optional a high-speed Postscript® module which includes a HDD meaning users can directly print postscript files (PDF, EPS) and raster files (JPEG, TIFF) without the need of a PC.

The SureColor P9560 series features Epson’s patented PrecisionCore Micro TFP head technology with a 2400x1200dpi resolution. Unlike competing mechanisms that are based on heat, the Epson print head uses an electro-mechanical movement that is kinder to the ink chemistry, for better imaging with more stable output. While consuming less power and less ink, it is also more accurate, flexible and durable. Micro-fine drop-on-demand nozzles enable precise dot shaping, placement and volume/density control for more consistent results with less wastage. Variable-size Droplet Technology (VSDT) enables superior half-tones and optimised colour density with minimum ink consumption. Twelve active channels are driven by an advanced LUT (Look-Up-Table) and a 12 cartridge ink supply system to provide an enhanced colour range. Dedicated Matte / Photo Black ink lines ensures the maximum possible dynamic range is achieved on a wide variety of media types and there is no extra ink wastage. Self-monitoring, alignment and cleaning systems ensure predictable, consistent and reliable output with minimal user maintenance.

When Epson launched UltraChrome K3 it established a new standard for aqueous (water based) ink technology. Epson has created a new ink for the SureColor P9560 series, the UltraChrome Pro12 ink set which adds an extra black(grey) ink to give this printer 4 blacks and 8 colours which increases the colour gamut even wider than its predecessor. With the addition of ink sub tanks you will have the certainty your print job will keep printing if the ink runs out. Using an all-pigment formulation, it produces prints that dry quickly to become water and scratch resistant with a high Dmax. Colour is stable in just 30 minutes and can remain lightfast for approx 60 years*.
The SureColor P9560 range is colourimetric calibrated during assembly to ensure that colour proofs/images from different printers of the same model remain totally consistent. The ink features a colour constancy level of less than DeltaE 1.0 so that prints remain visually consistent when viewed under different lights and lighting conditions.
Flexible and Easy to Operate
The SureColor P9560 is a floor-standing printer with a 44″ (1,118mm) wide carriage with improved flexible media handling. It supports basic bond paper, photo paper, transparent film, translucent back-lit and specialist synthetic media. It accepts roll media via a spindle mounting with integrated tension adjustment and has a high-speed auto-cutter which will cut most stocks. The printer ships with one spindle that supports rolls with either 2″ or 3″ cores. Additional spindles can be ordered separately for environments that involve high volume work with multiple media types. An integrated barcoding system helps track individual roll consumption while also enabling rapid exchange with automatic re-configuration for different media types. The printer supports sheet media and has a straight through paper path for solid board. It comes with a retractable output basket as well as an optional Auto Take-Up system for roll-to-roll printing and off-line / automated post-production. The ATU supports forward and reverse winding to enable de-curling. The printer supports edge-to-edge printing on sheet and roll media and will print full borderless on roll stocks.
The new SureColor series has an advanced new Media Feeding System to ensure superior print quality, consistency and linearity at the highest production speeds. New inductive rollers assures accurate and consistent feed regardless of the weight of the media roll while working to ensure consistent tension and parallelism with a reduced tendency for velocity changes and skewing which can otherwise affect the output quality.
The SureColor P9560 printer have been designed for professional and commercial applications. All models feature fast and flexible networking facilities. They have a new 4.3″ touch screen with an easy to follow menu system and in-built help. The printer can be configured remotely and has driver software available to suit most operating systems. Ink cartridges are pressurised to ensure maximum output precision and feature an enhanced capacity for extended operation and a reduced cost per print. The printer confirms Epson’s corporate directive for cost effective and durable operation with minimum environmental impact. It consumes Less Power and Less Ink is used to produce Superior Quality Print. Its large 700ml ink cartridges are also cheaper to purchase. Printers purchased in Australia & New Zealand are backed with a comprehensive service and support program with flexible ‘heads-‘n all’ cover that can be extended out to a total of FIVE YEARS. **
1 Print speeds are based on the print engine speed only. Total throughput time for any print depends on various factors including workstation configuration, file size, print resolution, ink coverage and networking. Actual print speeds will vary.
2 99% coverage of PANTONE PLUS FORMULA GUIDE solid-coated palette based on Epson Proofing Paper White Semimatte printed with the Epson Driver at 2400 x 1200 dpi. PANTONE coverage may vary when printed under other conditions.
3Ink lightfastness rating based on accelerated testing of prints on specialty media, displayed indoors, under glass. Actual print stability will vary according to media, printed image, display conditions, light intensity, humidity and atmospheric conditions. Epson does not guarantee longevity of prints. For maximum print life, display all prints under glass or lamination or properly store them. Visit www.wilhelm-research.com for the latest information.
