Epson has announced the launch of its first ever industrial level direct-to-garment (DTG) printer, Epson SureColor SC-F3030. It is a robust DTG printer that is designed for high productivity. Epson, headquartered in Japan, is focused on driving innovations and exceeding customer expectations in inkjet, visual communications, wearables, and robotics.

The new printer is targeted towards garment screen printers, e-commerce customers, drop-shipment jobbers and new start-ups engaged in personalised t-shirt printing business. It offers a low total cost of ownership (TCO) for mid/large garment and t-shirt manufacturers. The SC-F3030 features high levels of accuracy and prints even complex designs on a variety of cotton garments from light to dark colours, allowing businesses to deliver quick turnaround time. Its high speed networking enables rapid file transfer with 4GB RAM for job queuing, Epson said.

While printing on a light coloured shirt can be done in 14 seconds, printing on a dark garment takes 26 seconds. Its new hanger platens and auto height adjustment enable for faster loading with optional grip pads for frameless placement. Epson SureColor SC-F3030 comes with Epson Garment Creator, which enables production of complex high-quality images containing a mix of text and graphics. Epson accounting software helps in cost control and new Epson Cloud Solution PORT (Remote Monitoring System for Professional Printers) solution helps in enhanced management, security and operational support. These software make the new printer highly functional. Epson has introduced elements such as enhanced productivity and highly durable design to help businesses be more efficient and to optimise the printing workflow. Additionally, the new SureColor SC-F3030 printer is designed with ink-less nozzle status monitoring and advanced auto cleaning, which ensures consistent output with minimum wastage, according to a press release by the company.

Epson Precision Dot technology and advanced VSDT ensures solid and consistent colour with enhanced brightness (dMax) and gamut along with superior gradation and detail. It supports a wide range of fabrics in light and dark colours containing a mix of natural and man-made fibres. It offers high functionality supplied with Epson Garment Creator that enables production of complex high- quality images containing a mix of text and graphics, Epson accounting software for cost control and new Epson Total Solution PORT for enhanced management and operational support, according to a media statement by Epson.

It features a large fabric based head wiper and a bulk ink supply system that uses cost-effective bag based ink. Consumables last longer, require less frequent replacement and result in less waste. It is easy to operate, supplied on a stand with an ergonomic height, runs off a standard 240V power supply, and incorporates a touch-sensitive control panel with adjustable display settings, the release added.

The printer comes with the latest print engine with heavy-duty motors, all-new linear motion guide carriage system, extra-large fluff catchers, and self-washing capping system. The Epson Cloud Solution, PORT remote monitoring system, will provide a live view of the printer’s fleet production to better manage the efficiency and optimise the printing workflow.
