     The all-new Epson Stylus Pro 11880 represents the ultimate expression of Epson Stylus Pro printer engineering.  Produced by a small team of specialists, each printer is scrutinized.  And, each incorporates our latest technologies, including an innovative, new MicroPiezo® TFP™ print head, real-time automatic switching between Matte and Photo Black inks, automatic nozzle verification and cleaning, and more.  The result is the world’s most advanced 64-inch wide, photographic printer.

    Epson UltraChrome™ K3 Ink is the standard by which all other professional-level ink technologies are measured.  Now enhanced with our groundbreaking Vivid Magenta pigments, our newest generation of ink technology requires only eight colors, including a three-level Black technology, to significantly raise the level of quality for professional color and black-and-white prints.

Print head technology that’s ahead of its time

All new, 9-channel MicroPiezo TFP print head
• Print head designed to handle 9 separate ink channels
• One-inch wide, high-performance print head with 360 nozzles per channel
• Low vibration meniscus control for highly accurate dot shape and placement
• All-new ink repelling coating to reduce nozzle clogging

All new Epson AccuPhoto HD screening technology
• Advanced screening algorithm resulting in prints with superior color and clarity
• Maximum resolution of 2880 x 1440 dpi for incredibly sharp text and line art
• Extremely accurate, fine blends and photographic transitions

Variable-sized droplet with TFP technology
• Variable-sized droplets as small as 3.5 picoliters to greatly decrease print times while optimizing photographic quality
• Exotic Thin Film Piezo (TFP), along with low vibration meniscus control technology, to precisely control the curvature of every ink droplet within each nozzle before releasing it onto the media
(The result is extremely sharp and accurate placement of ink droplets for class-leading photographic print quality.)

Epson PreciseColor™ manufacturing
In order to ensure consistent printing between multiple Epson Stylus Pro printers of the same model, Epson has enhanced the manufacturing process to include colorimetric calibration. Eliminating the need for internal calibration devices, this system evaluates and adjusts each printer’s performance at the manufacturing stage, producing consistent color output from printer to printer.

Automatic print head alignment technology
• Built-in sensor that reads printed data for highly precise alignment of all color channels
(aligns both single and bi-directional print modes)

Automatic nozzle verification and cleaning technology
• Built-in sensor that quickly verifies nozzle status without using any media;
automatically cleans the print head if any problems are found – even partially clogged nozzles

Epson UltraChrome K3 with Vivid Magenta ink technology

Industry-defining, 8-color, pigment-based ink system
• High-density pigments for an extremely wide color gamut
• Radically new formulation of Magenta pigments for extremely vibrant blues and purples
• Professional print permanence ratings for truly sellable prints
• High-gloss Microcrystal Encapsulation™ technology for reduced gloss differential
• Superior scratch resistance from improved pigment and resin chemistry
• Color that’s stable immediately after printing – no short-term color shifting
• Black density up to 2.5 with an L value of 3.9* (depending upon the media)
*Data based on Epson Premium Luster Photo Paper (260)

Three-level Black ink technology
• Simultaneously uses Black, Light Black, and Light Light Black ink
• Significantly improves the printer’s gray balance while eliminating color casts
• Delivers outstanding midtones and highlights for a smoother tonal range
• Virtually eliminates the metamerism and bronzing of basic pigment chemistry
• Enhances the ICC profiling process for ColorSync™ and ICM™ workflows

Automatic, real-time Black ink mode switching
Printers can automatically utilize two different Black ink modes – Photo Black or Matte Black. This innovative solution optimizes the Black ink density for various media types, dramatically improving the final print quality.

The standard Photo Black ink mode can be used for any media type with professional results. However, for certain Epson media such as Velvet Fine Art, Enhanced Matte, and UltraSmooth® Fine Art, using the optional Matte Black ink mode instead will dramatically increase your black optical density for even better print quality.

Professional media handling

• Versatile media handling — prints on virtually any media type, in roll or cut-sheet format, up to 64 inches wide
• Unique, front-loading, straight-through media path through which all media is loaded
• Accurate loading of cut-sheet media up to 64 inches wide in a variety of weights, including posterboard up to 1.5 mm thick
• Automatic media bar code tracking and identification system for efficient use of roll media
• User-adjustable, dual-tension roll media spindle that accepts either 2- or 3-inch media cores
• Built-in automatic cutting system that supports most media types
• Standard, automatic roll media take-up reel for unattended production of large print runs
• Optional, retractable, fabric-based media bin that safely captures multiple prints up to 64x36

Unique printer activity lighting system
•Nine individual, amber LED lights that provide live feedback about ink and printer activity
