Wide-Format Printers




Seiko Infotech ( has added a new 64-inch mild-solvent inkjet printer to its ColorPainter series: the ColorPainter V-64s. Specifically designed for the mid-volume sign and banner printing market, the printer boasts a new 6-color inkset and newly developed piezo printheads.

The V-64s produces true 720 x 720 dpi prints with its 6-color (CMYKcm) inkset, EG-Outdoor EX ink. The new inkset (in 500 milliliters/color) Seiko reports, has a very low odor offering a better working environment while allowing for media versatility and providing strong benchmarks in color gamut, dry time, glossiness and outdoor lightfastness.

The machine’s six printheads allow the printer to achieve, in production mode, a printing speed of 172 sq ft/ hr at 720 x 720 dpi The machine can hit 322 sq ft/hr in draft mode, and 88 sq ft/hr in production mode.

Features on the V-64s include:
• Smart Pass Technology that automatically creates unique gradient overlaps between each printing pass to reduce/eliminate banding. The technology also optimizes dot placement to improve overall print quality.
• A three-way independently controlled heater to optimize ink receptiveness on media and ink drying time.
• Standard blower to speed drying, and integrated four-way take-up unit.
• Adjustable head height for different media thickness—0.08 or 0.1 in.
• Manual media cutter with media clips.

A RIP is not included, but Seiko indicates that the printer is compatible with Caldera, Onyx, SAi, Wasatch and others.

The unit is scheduled to begin shipping in June.
