Epson takes the wraps off new dye-sublimation printer

Epson has unveiled a new 76-inch high speed dye sublimation printer, the SureColor F10060H, with support for media up to 76-inches wide.

Like its four-colour siblings, the SureColor F10060H is a dye-sublimation machine for textile production aimed at high volume producers.

“In the dye-sublimation sector, customers demand fast turnaround and reliable operation. They also expect consistent and accurate output. With these requirements in mind, Epson has developed a machine that sets new standards in terms of standards in quality, reliability and durability,” the company said.

This new press features a total of six ink lines including the traditional CYMK along with two more that can be configured for either Light Cyan (Lc) and Light Magenta (Lm) or Fluorescent Pink (Fp) and Fluorescent Yellow(Fy).

The company said the CYMKLcLm configuration is aimed at customers who seek to produce premium quality output with maximum image quality. It aims to enable more precise and accurate colour with fine gradation and reduced grain.

The FpFy configuration is aimed at customers producing sportswear, work and emergency clothing, merchandise and soft signage which require a fluorescent component. Images produced with fluorescent ink are bright and intense with high reflectivity.

While traditional dye sub printers only apply fluorescent inks as a spot colour, the SC-F10060H can also apply them as a continuous tone mixed with other colours.

The new printer also features a total of six next generation PrecisionCore printheads, each with 3200 nozzles. The heads support Variable Sized Dot Technology (VSDT) and feature active inkless nozzle status monitoring. To ensure maximum image quality with minimum wastage, the printer undertakes auto nozzle replacement and incorporates advanced self-cleaning.

The new printer supports production speeds up to 245m2/hr on rolls up to 1950mm (76-inches) wide and 60kg in weight. To ensure cost-effective operation it supports ultra-thin media, incorporates a high-precision auto-take-up and features a bulk ink system that holds up to 120L with dual storage and auto hot-swap.

The SC-F10060H also features a large nine-inch colour touch panel display and a transparent platen window with integrated lighting, in addition to downloadable EMX profiles and an integrated RGB camera.

“When developing the original four-colour SC-F10060 and now the new six-colour SC-F10060H, Epson carefully considered workflow. The printer can be loaded by single operator, care of an integrated media lifter and dual front and rear feed controls,” Epson said.

“It also features an industrial style signal lamp and an ink system with automatic hot swap. The SC-F10060H 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.”

The SureColor F10060H is available now from authorised Epson large format fabric printing solutions resellers.
