Epson America (Los Alamitos, California) has expanded its line of textile printing solutions with the industrial-level SureColor F10070H Dye-Sublimation 76-inch wide-format printer. Delivering “round-the-clock productivity at unmatched speeds and at a lower price than comparable solutions,” the new printer offers multiple ink configurations – including Light Cyan and Light Magenta or Fluorescent Pink and Fluorescent Yellow. The configurations will enable print shops to deliver bright and vivid customized apparel, décor and novelty goods quickly. The new printer will ship directly from Epson America starting in July of 2021, said the OEM.
“As textile and apparel manufacturers expand production strategies to meet faster lead times, the SureColor F10070H enables shops to create high-quality customized clothing, unique sportswear, individualized novelty products, customized socks, décor pillows and more in the amount needed,” said Tim Check, Senior Product Manager of Professional Imaging at Epson America. “The industrial-level SureColor F10070H enables producers to support just-in-time digital production, eliminating the need for stockpiling garments and allowing shops to easily replenish weekly demand. Moreover, the SureColor F10070H is one of the fastest in its price point, and costs about half the price of competitive solutions available today.”
With 6 new user-replaceable 4.7” PrecisionCore printheads and UltraChrome DS6 ink technology, the F10070H delivers industrial-level, roll-to-roll performance at speeds up to 2,635 sq.ft./hr. with exceptional colour saturation and high contrast. Leveraging six colours, the new printer provides the ability to expand colour gamut and bring bright, vivid colours to the production of custom sportswear, fashion items, décor, soft signage, and more with high levels of personalization. Ita cost-effective, high-capacity replaceable ink-pack system holds 20L of ink per colour, allowing for longer print runs with less user intervention. Engineered for demanding industrial environments, it also includes advanced auto paper-tension control and a fabric head wiper for simple, continuous production with predictable performance. The SureColor F10070H comes equipped with Epson Edge workflow software that features an Adobe PostScript 3 engine for colour management, smart nesting, pattern repeats and more. The printer also comes with Epson cloud solution PORT, providing a live view of the printer fleet – including production rates and printer utilization – to optimize workflow.
