Epson and the Environment

New Perspective

Revamping the photo printing workflow with inkjet minilabs

Epson inkjet minilabs are easier to maintain than traditional silver-halide photofinishing equipment and streamline the photo printing workflow, saving photofinishers upkeep costs. They help to mitigate resource consumption and reduce the environmental impacts of the printing process.

Efficient photo printing with digital printing

Silver-halide minilabs require chemical adjustment and calibration in the morning, as well as waste fluid processing and cleaning at the end of the day*1. The SureLab SL-D3000 inkjet minilab, however, does not require any special maintenance at startup and shutdown. Inkjet minilabs dramatically improve the photofinishers' work environment because, without chemicals, there is no waste liquid to be processed, no parts to be cleaned, and no chemical smell.

  • No chemicals means no liquid waste.
  • No washing process means no water hookup is needed.
  • Compact body has a 2.1 m2 installation footprint*2.
    The compactness of the design gives photofinishers with limited floor space greater installation freedom.
