Woven Monkey installs Epson dye sublimation printer

Digital textile printing company from UK, Woven Monkey, has announced a new service for its customers with the installation of the SureColor-F-7200 dye sublimation printer by Epson, a global technology company. The new machine will help produce products on a wide range of polyester-based materials, including silk simulations and stretch fabrics.

The dye sublimation printer is a 64 inch width machine featuring Epson’s unique Thin Film Piezo heads with PrecisionCore technology and running Epson’s UltraChrome DS inks giving vibrant results to textile and home furnishings.

Woven Monkey’s managing director Ed Morton said, “Magnus Mighall of RA Smart has helped and advised us from the company’s inception in 2013 and he has been instrumental in our decision to diversify from pigment-based printing direct on to textiles to the dye sub sector with the Epson machine. With this SureColor F series technology, we print onto paper and then heat transfer the image and the ink is absorbed into the material. It is much easier to control than direct to textile and there is less risk with issues like shrinkage.”

“The FC-7200 gives us a much wider range of textiles to work with and it eliminates any fear of the image fading when washed. Our vision is to expand into stretch fabrics, including clothing and to make use of the wide range of polyester based materials which today are hard to distinguish from natural products like silk, linen or cotton. The key to our success is quality and the fact that Epson not only supplies the printer but also manufactures the printheads, ink, and dye sub paper enhances the control and the confidence we have in this equipment,” Morton added.

Phil McMullin, sales manager for professional print solutions at Epson UK said, “Many printers are waking up to the huge scope of the SureColor SC-F series fabric printers because of their quality and versatility. We are pleased that RA Smart has introduced Woven Monkey to our equipment and added value to this expanding business.” (GK)
