Epson launching DTG at Visual Impact

Epson is launching its new SureColor F2160 direct-to-garment printer at Visual Impact in Brisbane next week, taking place from Thursday to Saturday.


The company says its SureColor SC-F2160 raises the productivity bar while enhancing output quality and reducing running costs.


“It is capable of making full colour prints on a range of items including t-shirts, sweatshirts, polo shirts and tote bags. It also incorporates a host of enhancements with easier job set-up, faster loading, and faster printing. The printer also features new print modes for improved imaging with reduced graininess and an enhanced gamut. Ink and print systems have also been enhanced to enable improved reliability with reduced user maintenance.”


The DTG printer is sold as a complete Epson solution, including printer, printhead, ink, and software. The company says the user can be assured that not only have all parts have been designed to work together, but are protected by a comprehensive single-source warranty. It is being offered with on-site service cover that is extendable to three years.


Sitting alongside the new F2160 will be the award-winning SureColor F9360 wide-format textile printer, designed to deliver digital dye-sublimation transfers at speeds of up to 93 m2/hr. The dye-sub printer won the 2017 SGIA Product of the Year Award in the Roll-to-Roll Dye Sublimation on Textile category.


The F9360 features an integrated new fabric wiping system coupled with a roll-to-roll media support system to handle economical lightweight transfer papers.


Epson’s Visual Impact stand will also feature a signage and POS graphics demo area, including the SureColor Solvent 60600, designed for rapid and cost-effective production of durable indoor/outdoor signage, and its higher-end sibling, the 80600, featuring Pantone coverage exceeding 98 per cent.


Both recently won BLI Awards for Wide Format Printers and incorporate Epson’s latest PrecisionCore printhead and UltraChrome Eco-Solvent ink technology.


Epson’s final demo area at the show is dedicated to posters, graphics and technical printing and is represented by the SureColor P20070 and flexible SureColor T5200D.


The company says, “If you produce large format saleable photography or commercial POS, then the Epson SureColor Production 20070 is a 64" (1,626mm) large format printer designed to suit your needs. It offers production speeds of up to 38m2/hr and supports media up to 1.5mm thick. It uses a low cost 10 colour ink set that produces an outstanding gamut and incorporates a special LLk ink for gloss optimisation. Dedicated Photo and Matte Black channels ensure minimum waste and there is an optional precision ATU available for roll-to-roll production.


“If you produce plans, drawings or low cost posters then the SC-T5200D is the product of choice. It will print an A0 image in as little as 50 seconds with output that dries almost instantly to be water and rub resistant. It is extremely cost-effective to run, with low power and low ink consumption. Designed for business, corporate, educational and government environments, the printer features a small footprint and dual roll loading. It can be ordered with optional high-speed Postscript for drag-n-drop P4P applications as well as a large format scanner for full print, scan, copy, and share functionality.”
