Epson’s new SureColor F2160 direct-to-garment printer.

Epson will launch its SureColor F2160 direct-to-garment (DGT) printer next week at Visual Impact Brisbane 2018.

The new SureColor is capable of making full colour prints on a range of items including t-shirts, sweatshirts, polo shirts and tote bags. It incorporates a range of enhancements with easier job set-up, faster loading, and faster printing. The printer also features new print modes for improved imaging with reduced graininess and an enhanced gamut. Ink and print systems have also been enhanced to enable improved reliability with reduced user maintenance.

Sitting alongside the new F2160 on the Epson stand [B10] at the show will be the new SureColor F9360 wide-format textile printer designed to deliver high quality digital dye-sublimation transfers at high speed for a range of textile and apparel applications. This 64-inch printer delivers outstanding image quality and production speeds of up to 93 m2/hr. It features an integrated new fabric wiping system coupled with an accurate roll-to-roll media support system to handle lightweight transfer papers. The SureColor F9360 was also the proud winner of the 2017 SGIA Product of the Year Award in the “Roll-to-Roll Dye Sublimation on Textile” category.

The signage and POS graphics demo area on Epson’s Visual Impact stand will showcase the latest in high-speed, high-quality solutions in the market.

The SureColor Solvent 60600 is designed for rapid and extremely cost-effective production of durable indoor/outdoor signage. The SureColor Solvent 80600, which boasts PANTONE©coverage exceeding 98 percent, is designed to produce durable high-impact, high-value graphics with outstanding image quality. 

Both printers recently won BLI Awards for Wide Format Printers and both incorporate Epson’s latest PrecisionCore printhead and UltraChrome Eco-Solvent ink technology.

Epson’s final demo area at the show is dedicated to posters, graphics and technical printing and is represented by the SureColor P20070 and SureColor T5200D.

If you produce large format saleable photography or commercial POS, the Epson SureColor Production 20070 is a 64″ (1,626mm) large format printer designed to suit your needs. It offers production speeds of up to 38m2/hr and supports media up to 1.5mm thick. It uses a low cost 10 colour ink set that produces an outstanding gamut and incorporates a special LLk ink for gloss optimisation. Dedicated Photo and Matte Black channels ensure minimum waste and there is an optional precision ATU available for roll-to-roll production.
