SureColor F10060H combines efficient high-speed production with outstanding image quality
Epson has announced a new 76-inch high speed dye sublimation printer with support for media up to 76” wide – the SureColor F10060H. This new model features a total of six ink lines including the traditional CYMK along with two more that can be configured for either Light Cyan (Lc) and Light Magenta (Lm) or Fluorescent Pink (Fp) and Fluorescent Yellow(Fy).
The CYMKLcLm configuration is aimed at customers who seek to produce premium quality output with maximum image quality. It enables more precise and accurate colour with fine gradation and reduced grain. It is particularly suited to output that include images of people, product and locations and environment. Skin colours are outstanding, equipment is vibrant and beaches, trees and skies look rich and captivating.
The FpFy configuration is aimed at customers producing sportswear, work and emergency clothing, merchandise and soft signage which require a fluorescent component.
Images produced with fluorescent ink are bright and intense with high reflectivity. While traditional dye sub printers only apply fluorescent inks as a spot colour, the SC-F10060H can also apply them as a continuous tone mixed with other colours to provide a full rainbow of brilliance.
The new printer features a total of six next generation PrecisionCore printheads, each with 3200 nozzles. The heads support Variable Sized Dot Technology (VSDT) and feature active inkless nozzle status monitoring. To ensure maximum image quality with minimum wastage the printer undertakes auto nozzle replacement and incorporates advanced self-cleaning.
The new printer supports production speeds up to 245m2/hr on rolls up to 1950mm (76”) wide and 60kg in weight. To ensure cost-effective operation it supports ultra-thin media, incorporates a high-precision auto-take-up and features a bulk ink system that holds up to 120L with dual storage and auto hot-swap.
Like its 4-colour siblings, the SureColor F10060H is a sophisticated, dye-sublimation machine for textile production aimed at high volume producers. It combines speed, efficiency and production-cost minimisation with the ability to produce superior output quality .
In the dye-sublimation sector, customers demand fast turnaround and reliable operation. They also expect consistent and accurate output. With these requirements in mind, Epson has developed a machine that sets new standards in terms of standards in quality, reliability and durability.
The SC-F10060H is designed for easy operation. It features a large 9” colour touch panel display and a transparent platen window with integrated lighting. Downloadable EMX profiles facilitate rapid set-up with common media types. An integrated RGB camera enables easy profile adjustment and fast configuration with new medias.
When developing the original 4-colour SC-F10060 and now the new 6-colour SC-F10060H, Epson carefully considered workflow. The printer can be loaded by single operator, care of an integrated media lifter and dual front and rear feed controls. It also features an industrial style signal lamp and an ink system with automatic hot swap. The SC-F10060H ships complete with Epson Edge Print and Edge Dashboard software and also supports a new service called Epson Cloud Solution PORT (ECSP) that enables detailed production monitoring and advanced status analysis.
As with all Epson Large Format Printers, the SC-F10060H is backed with a comprehensive service package that offers cover up to five years. The new ECSP system enables Epson to offer remote support and accelerated repair; problems can be directly analysed and service agents dispatched complete with appropriate parts.
To ensure maximum up-time, the optional User Self Replacement of printheads have been enabled, clearly demonstrating Epson has raised the benchmark for production equipment.
The SureColor F10060H is available for ordering now from authorised Epson Large Format fabric printing solutions resellers.
