Epson SureColor F-Series – High Performance Dye-Sublimation Transfer Printer
By Databazaar Blog
Epson’s SureColor F-Series dye-sublimation transfer printers support a wide range of professional applications such as soft signage, sportswear, clothing, customized accessories and promotional items. These printers not only simplify the conventional dye-sublimation transfer process, they also remove design limitations and the hassles involving the use of chemicals. Using Epson’s digital imaging technology, there’s no limit on what you can print. Besides, there’s no minimum order quantity – you can print on just one garment or as many garments as ordered.
The F6070 and F7070 can handle 44” and 64” widths respectively and can deliver print speeds up to 618 sq ft/hr. Both models feature an integrated high-capacity ink system that uses Epson’s specially formulated Ultrachrome DS Ink. The ink is fast drying and guarantees brilliant color, sharp images and smooth gradations. You can purchase the inks in refill packs that are available in packs of six and reduce your overall cost. Refilling the ink tanks is a simple process.
Both models in the F-series use continuous 328 feet rolls that are available in standard multipurpose and low tack adhesive paper types. The low tack adhesive paper is great for use in the production of high-end sportswear, while the standard paper can be used on ceramic, regular t-shirts and promotional merchandise. These papers have a unique chemical coating that allows for heavier ink loads. Epson has also included the Wasatch RIP software that enables complete layout, color and printer management. The printers have been designed to deliver industrial-level reliability and they can be operated 24/7.
SummaryThe Epson SureColor F-Series dye-sublimation transfer printer delivers high performance and better profits.
