Epson launches the SureColor F9360, the company’s latest wide-format dye sublimation printer, printing at 1.6m, offering CMYK print.
Making its debut at the western Sydney Epson Product Expo, those in attendance got to see it in action before it arrives in the country.
Nathan Fulcher, product marketing manager, Epson says, “This is a new addition to the family, a successor to the F9200. In the range it is 64” inch, dual head machine, CMYK.
“The dual heads give it the clear speed advantage. We also have a 64 inch single head, and a 44 inch.
“It is our flagship, has a wider colour gamut, and is faster and costs less to run.
“For two pass printing, high-quality, it will do 60sqm/hr. If productivity is the focus, it can do one-pass production at 108sqm/h.
“It is aimed at printers with high volume needs across fabric, soft signage, and personalisation.
“We work with suppliers like Chromolux to print metal signage, or sublimate onto things like coasters, stubby holders, plastics, novelty items, thongs, mugs. For custom, branded products, it gives printers a lot of flexibility.
“One possible use would be print-for-pay advertising for billboards, signs, this also opens you up to branded novelty items in line with that as well."
Fulcher says, “We are taking forward orders, and shipping in February. We are in discussion with a number of customers who are keen, but it is physically not in the country. We have one in the head office in Sydney.”
