Epson SureColor F6070 and F7070 Deliver Increased Performance, Reliability, and Profitability to Digital Textile Production

Epson America enters the dye-sublimation printing market for the first time with the announcement of two roll-fed dye-sublimation transfer printers – the 44-inch SureColor F6070 and the 64-inch SureColor F7070.

The new SureColor F-Series printers are not only the first dye sublimation models from Epson, but also the first in the market in which every component – from ink and print-head to printer chassis and bulk ink delivery system – is designed and manufactured by a single company.  The result is a high-performance dye-sublimation transfer printing technology designed for exceptional reliability and industrial-level production with high quality output up to 1,440 x 720 dpi on all leading transfer papers.

The all-new SureColor F-Series models support an extensive range of applications, including efficient production of high-quality soft signage, sportswear, apparel, accessories, and customized promotional items such as mouse pads and ceramic mugs. Depending upon the application, both models can output at speeds up to 618 square feet per hour, and both feature an integral and easily refillable, high-capacity 1.5 liter bulk ink system.

Developed over a three-year period, Epson UltraChrome DS is a specially-formulated dye-sublimation ink, producing outstanding images with vibrant colors, intense blacks, sharp contours, and smooth gradations. This all-new ink technology exhibits excellent light- and wash-fastness, as well as resistance to alkaline and acid perspiration. Designed specifically for Epson UltraChrome DS ink technology, the newly optimized Epson MicroPiezo TFP print head ensures precise and repeatable performance as well as excellent longevity. The printers are designed to be used exclusively with the Epson UltraChrome DS inks1.

Epson is also introducing a new line of dye-sublimation transfer papers designed specifically for the SureColor F-Series. Epson low-tack adhesive is dedicated for high-end cut-and-sew fabric and apparel production, while the Epson standard multipurpose paper is ideal for a variety of transfer applications that use either soft or rigid surfaces, including t-shirts, mouse pads and ceramics. Both papers utilize a unique chemical coating that allows for heavier ink loads to provide superior color, and will be available in 328-foot rolls in both 44-inch and 64-inch widths.

"We are excited to provide the garment printing industry with industrial-level printers engineered from the ground up for true dye-sublimation production," said Catalina Frank , product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America , Inc. "Developed using our latest performance imaging technology, the SureColor F-Series allows our customers to take on more jobs and generate more profits, while reducing the number of printers needed for full production capacity."
