The SureLab D1070 produces up to 460 4×6-inch, 300 5×7-inch and 165 8×10-inch prints per hour for photo, event and retail environments. In fact, the new minilab photo printer is up to 10% faster than Epson’s previous generation.
It also features the latest professional imaging technology in a compact footprint. The modern minilab combines Epson’s MicroPiezo AMC printhead, AccuPhoto image processing technology and UltraChrome D6r-S ink.

It can print on high-capacity roll- or single-sided sheet media, including glossy, luster, and matte media. In addition, it can handle a maximum print width of 8.3 inches. The minilab printer also offers BorderFree printing in frame-ready sizes. Moreover, when coupled with Epson genuine photo media, prints are water, smudge and fade resistant.
The printer also uses high-capacity ink packs. UltraChrome D6r-S 250 mL ink packs deliver wide color gamut. Plus, cartridge-free printing can help reduce waste compared to traditional cartridge systems
The D1070 also features a new front-facing 1.44-inch LCD panel to simplify print tasks and operation. And new nozzle detection and alignment technology enables less downtime.
