Epson has strengthened its leading position in the dye sublimation printer market with the launch of two new 44-inch, dye-sublimation products. Designed for low to medium-volume printing, the SureColor SC-F6400 4-colour, and SureColor SC-F6400H 6-colour are ideal for applications such as textile production, personalized products, and high-end photo reproduction. The printers offer a range of significant improvements, including increased productivity and reduced wastage.
Based on Epson’s revolutionary Micro TFP PrecisionCore technology, which is designed to deliver exceptional image quality, both printers offer different advantages, depending on the needs of the user. The SC-F6400 increases productivity by 20% compared to its predecessor the SC-F6300. The SC-F6400H provides an extended color gamut by offering the use of CMYK, plus a choice of either Fluorescent Pink and Fluorescent Yellow, Light Cyan and Light Magenta, or Orange and Violet. This means that, as Epson’s first 6-color 44-inch dye-sublimation printer, the SC-F6400H opens the door to an expanded range of potential applications for both textile and rigid substrates. Users in the production of fashion, home wear, sportswear, soft signage, and promotional items will find this enhancement of particular interest.
The SC-F6400 and SC-F6400H offer several other advantages to business users including new, higher-capacity ink packs that contain 45%* more ink (1.6L), reducing replacement frequency and waste. The ink packs only need to be shaken and inserted, no more pouring and stirring, which can create a mess. The printers also feature a new 4.3-inch touch screen which is 30% larger than the previous model. Simplified maintenance routines minimize downtime and software bundles are included to help businesses run more efficiently and better analyze costing and profitability. Both products offer users a complete solution including hardware, software, printhead, ink, sublimation papers, and warranty, plus the SC-F6400H includes a bundled take-up reel.
“With a high market share, Epson has built a strong reputation for supporting the business with true end-to-end printing solutions that offer the highest levels of quality, flexibility, and cost-efficiency,” said Tom Owers, Pro Graphics Product Manager at Epson UK. ” These new printers are perfect examples of our commitment to listening to market needs and delivering timely and effective solutions.”
