Epson's new SC-F6200

Epson Australia is expanding into the thriving textile printing market with the launch of three new dye-sublimation printers. 

“The Epson SureColor SC-F9200, SC-F7200 and SC-F6200 printers will allow users to produce superior-quality textiles and promotional goods simply, reliably and cost effectively,” said a company press release. “The new range is also designed to enable production of interior décor with imaging onto hard surfaces.”

The SC-F6200 replaces the SC-F6000 with support for a new high density black ink (HDK), a high quality print mode and a bulk waste system. It’s designed for sheet-based production and is suited to custom clothing, merchandise and hard surface work.

The SC-F7200 replaces the SC-F7100 with support for the new HDK ink and HQ Print mode. The 64” machine is designed for roll-based production and suited to custom fabric and soft signage work.

The high speed SC-F9200 offers almost twice the performance of the SC-F7200, with dual print heads, dual high-capacity continuous ink supply systems (CISS) and a maximum print speed of just over 100m2/hr.

“With these new models, we have utilised the latest Epson engineering advancements to deliver outstanding colour, precision and performance to our customers,” said Craig Heckenberg, general manager, business division, Epson Australia.  “The SC-F7200 and F9200 offer significant opportunities to the roll-to-roll textile and soft signage markets. With its new and enhanced capabilities, the SC-F6200 opens up a plethora of possibilities in the merchandise, home and office decor markets.”

Epson’s new F-Series printers are priced inclusive of hardware delivery and installation costs within all capital cities across Australia, along with 1 year warranty and optional service packs which provide cover for up to three years. Prices start at AUD$9,995 for the SC-F6200, $19,995 for the SC-F7200 and $30,995 for the SC-F9200.

A recent FESPA/InfoTrends survey found that textile print growth – in graphics, garment, décor and industrial markets – was the dominant growth application amongst respondents.
