Epson set to launch cost efficient dye sub textile printer

May 18, 2015

Hot on the heels of Mimaki announcing its latest textile dye sublimation printer is Epson who announced a new SureColor SC-F9200 printer and HDK Black ink to help manufacturers produce high-quality, mass-production textiles quickly and consistently, while keeping costs low.

Epson says the SureColor SC-F9200 will be available from October 2015 along with a range of sublimation papers to ensure every element works in harmony to deliver a range of textiles such as clothing, sportswear, home furnishings, as well as soft signage and flags with the best possible results.

According to Epson, its PrecisionCore technology and two TFP printheads enable users to achieve high quality textiles with superb colour and clarity. PrecisionCore print chips, made with a silicon wafer fabrication process, can be arrayed in both moving serial printhead and fixed line head configurations to deliver professional output at dramatic speeds. The printheads work in tandem with a new high-density HDK Black ink, the latest addition to the UltraChrome DS ink range, which the company says have been developed for use in textile printing to produce deep, neutral blacks and dense shadows.

Users will benefit from two high-capacity ink supply systems meaning longer, uninterrupted print runs and less time spent replenishing inks, while the use of Epson UltraChrome DS inks mean maintenance and cleaning needs are low. Additionally, a large after heater and optional air dryer means products are in optimal condition for winding on to the highly-accurate take-up system, meaning users don’t need to waste time waiting for prints to dry.

Richard Barrow, senior product manager, Epson Europe says: “Epson realises how important it is for our customers to keep their overall printing costs down. With the SC-F9200, it is easy to achieve a very low cost per square metre thanks to the high-capacity ink tanks and Epson UltraChrome DS ink. Users can also cut costs even further by using our new HDK Black ink, which needs less ink to create dense, neutral blacks, helping reduce the overall ink consumption.”

To help offer businesses significant cost savings, the SC-F9200 is available with Print & Save, Epson’s professional managed print service package, which allows tighter budget control and helps reduce overstocking.
