Epson has launched the SureColor F10060, its first 76-inch large format dye-sublimation printer for textile production.
It is aimed at high volume producers seeking speed, reliability, and efficiency. Some of the numerous applications that the SC-F10060 has been designed for include soft signage, fashion, sportswear, home furnishings and décor.
According to the company, customers are demanding more fast turnaround times and cost-effective production within the dye-sublimation sector. In addition, Epson said they also expect reliable operation with consistent high-quality output.
“With these requirements in mind, Epson has developed an industrial level dye-sublimation printer that, the company believes, sets new standards,” Epson said.
“The SC-F10060 offers the highest throughput of any Epson LFP released to date. It features four of Epson’s very latest 4.7-inch PrecisionCore Micro TFP print heads that each incorporate four print elements. Active nozzle status monitoring and advanced self-cleaning ensure consistent high quality output at up to 255m2/hr.”
The printer supports media rolls up to 76-inches wide and is 60kg in weight. It features an 80L bulk ink system, an extra-large 155GB buffer memory, high-speed networking and on-board Step & Repeat functionality.
It also features precision feed management and a compact double-sided dryer, a large 9-inch colour touch panel display, a transparent platen window with integrated lighting, downloadable EMX profiles, as well as an integrated RGB camera.
When developing the SC-F10060, Epson said it carefully considered workflow.
“The printer can be loaded by single operator, care of an integrated media lifter and dual front and rear feed controls. It also features an industrial style signal lamp and an ink system with automatic hot swap. The SC-F10060 ships complete with Epson Edge Print and Edge Dashboard software and also supports a new service called Epson Cloud Solution PORT (ECSP) that enables detailed production monitoring and advanced status analysis,” it said.
As with all Epson large format printers, the SC-F10060 is backed with a service package that offers cover of up to five years.
The SureColor F10060 is now available for order from authorised Epson large format fabric printing solutions resellers.
