Epson has set its focus on personalisation through micro-production at this week’s FESPA Amsterdam, with the company showcasing its first small-footprint UV flatbed printer (SC-V1060) and new entry-level DTG hybrid printer (SC-F1060) for first time at FESPA in 2024.

“FESPA this year is all about demonstrating how Epson’s micro production digital printing technology can support businesses producing beautiful, bespoke products that enhance our lives,” said Chris Davies from Epson Europe’s commercial and industrial printing division.

“The variety of printing techniques on display demonstrates the many advanced flexible applications of Epson’s digital printer range including the latest dye sublimation, direct-to-garment (DTG) and ultra-violet (UV) signage printers.”

This week at FESPA, Epson has showcased its new SureColor-V1060 A4 flatbed UV printer and entry-levelSureColor-F1060 DTG printer. Epson’s SureColor-V1060 A4 UV flatbed printer has been designed to serve the needs of businesses in the promotional goods industry.

The SC-V1060 prints on a wide range of substrates with thicknesses up to 70mm, including acrylics, polycarbonates, PVC, aluminium, metal, polyester, foamboard, styrene, wood and stone, making it ideal for creating promotional and personalised items. The SC-V1060 new UV flatbed printer will be of interest to a wide range of businesses, from photo-retailers and small goods manufacturers to e-commerce printers and visitor attractions, such as theme parks.

Epson’s SureColor-F1060 DTG printer is the first entry-level DTG printer that can print directly onto dark and light fabrics. Completing Epson’s range of hybrid DTG and DTF (Direct-to-Film) printers, the SC-F1060 will be of particular interest to hobbyists, retailers and businesses that require a cost-effective solution with the flexibility to print on a wide range of fabric types.

The SC-F1060 is the only printer in its category to include white ink, enabling it to print directly onto dark garments and on film. This enables producers to print on many items such as t-shirts, hoodies, bags, sweatshirts and cushions, and ideal for companies providing in-store printing in quick time.

“Many small and medium sized businesses are using Epson’s digital printing technology to produce and retail uniquely designed, highly desirable and personalised items so we will be showing many fine examples of these items on our stand this year,” said Davies.

Accompanying the SureColor-F1060 on the stand is Epson’s recently launched DTG hybrid SureColor F2200 that has been designed for start-up companies or medium-volume businesses requiring high levels of flexibility, accuracy and rapid turnaround.

Designed to produce complex designs on a variety of garments, the SureColor F2200 uses Epson’s advanced PrecisionCore MicroTFP printhead technology to provide faster printing and data processing speeds, resulting in a productivity increase of up to 25 per cent over its predecessor, while maintaining extremely high print quality.

Also showing at FESPA is Epson’s recently launched 17-inch photo and fine-art production printer. The new SureColor-P5300 combines the technology of the Epson SC-P700/P900 with the production capability of the Epson SC-P5000 and is designed to serve the needs of professional photographers, fine-art users, design agencies and photo retail stores.

The SC-P5300 offers exceptional image quality thanks to the consistency and accuracy of Epson’s Micro Piezo printhead technology, coupled with an optimised colour gamut and UltraChrome Pro10 ink with violet as standard. The printer also offers black enhanced overcoat (BEO) and a carbon black mode for delivering the very highest black density, as well as improved contrast, better tonality and reduced bronzing in dark areas on glossy media.
