Designed exclusively by Epson, the optimized Epson MicroPiezo TFP print head and Epson UltraChrome DS ink system enables the SureColor F7170 to deliver high-quality printing for a range of dye-sublimation applications with superior dot control, precise and repeatable performance and excellent longevity.
A new highly accurate take up reel and substrate system delivers winding accuracy between zero and .19-inches on transfer paper rolls for a wide range of digital textile applications, including flags, banners, home furnishings, and apparel manufacturing. Built for increased productivity, the SureColor F7170 also features a high-capacity ink tank system with refillable bags to allow continuous printing through a full roll of media without running cleaning cycles and a new post-platen heater for faster drying times.
"The SureColor F7170 was designed to enable digital textile producers to increase productivity, minimize downtime and maximize profitability," said Catalina Frank, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. "The combined power of Epson's MicroPiezo TFP print head technology with an advanced feature set and industrial-level performance enables customers to manage high-quality dye-sublimation printing across a range of applications all day, every day."
