Epson announces new dye sublimation textile printer

MANAMA, December 15, 2017

Epson, a printing industry major, has announced the new SureColor SC-F9300 dye sublimation textile printer, designed primarily for fast, high-volume printing for clothing, textiles and soft signage, as well as other printed merchandise.

This new flagship model replaces the existing SC-F9200, with an evolution of trusted Epson print technology that provides even better quality and reliability, said a statement from the company.

Brand new Epson Precision Dot technology for dye sublimation including a halftone module, look-up tables and micro-weave help make an instantly noticeable difference to print quality, and make it easy to get quality results straight out of the box, it said.

Meanwhile, Epson’s Wide CMYK input profile combines with UltraChrome DS inks to ensure the maximum possible colour gamut, for accurate reproduction of even the most complex designs, it added.

Now offering print speeds of up to 108.6m2/h, the SC-F9300 provides a complete Epson solution, comprising printer, inks, sublimation papers and software, that maximises uptime, with improved take-up and other reliability features to eliminate common problems such as cockling and head strike.

The SureColor SC-F9300 comes with Oeko-Tex Eco Passport certification and has passed Japan’s AZO test for household products, meaning that clothing and textiles produced on the printer using UltraChrome DS inks are completely safe to wear for adults and children, including babies.

Shihab Zubair, regional sales manager, Epson Middle East, said: “It’s a challenge to top a product that is already incredibly reliable, very fast and extremely high quality, but with the SC-F9300, that’s exactly what we’ve done.”

“It’s faster, with improved handling of even very thin substrates, and better at avoiding cockling and other common feeding problems,” he said.

“Our company offers a complete solution – printer, inks, substrates, software and support – so everything is designed to work perfectly together. Combine that with straightforward setup and operation, and it’s the ideal solution for print companies looking to move into dye sublimation, or those who want to update an earlier model,” he added.

The new model will be displayed at Epson's stand in Sign and Graphic Imaging exhibition, DWTC, from January 14 to 16. – TradeArabia News Service
