New printing packages complete Epson’s dye-sub line-up

Dye-sublimation printing on a range of substrates

Epson has unveiled two new dye-sublimation printers to help users reliably and cost-effectively produce superior-quality textiles and promotional goods. Part of a complete Epson package, the SC-F7200 and SC-F6200 printers are backed up with warranty and service support, allowing textile producers, photographic studios and promotional product companies to benefit from Epson’s high-quality output with peace of mind.

These new models enhance Epson’s dye-sublimation line-up by offering customers the chance to expand their production capabilities. Both the SC-F7200 and SC-F6200 are capable of producing high-quality printed textiles such as clothing, sportswear and home textiles, while the SC-F6200 also offers the flexibility needed to sublimate onto a range of hard substrates. Ideal for companies producing promotional goods, the printer can be used to sublimate onto tailored goods, including mugs and phone and tablet covers.

Vernon Mellors LFP Product Manager of Epson South Africa says: “With these two models, we have used the latest Epson engineering advancements to deliver two new dye-sublimation printers to our customers. With its new and enhanced capabilities, the SC-F6200 opens up a plethora of new possibilities in the photographic market for printing photos on to substrates such as metal and wood. Alongside this, the SC-F7200 has been created and developed to help the roll-to-roll textile market achieve outstanding results.”

Both printers use Epson’s PrecisionCore TFP printhead to produce outstanding, accurate prints with superb colours and clarity. These work in tandem with the UltraChrome DS ink-set to help users achieve the best-possible results. A new HDK Black ink has been created primarily for textile printing, to help produce deep, neutral blacks and dense shadows. Users printing on rigid substrates will benefit from the standard black ink, as it produces smooth gradations, perfect for creating promotional goods.

Dye-sublimation customers purchasing these products will benefit from a complete Epson printing package. The hardware, software, printhead, ink and sublimation papers have been made and supported by one manufacturer to ensure everything works together seamlessly. The printers also come bundled with Wasatch software, meaning users are ready to start printing straight away, without the need for further investment.

Epson places a priority on providing first-class service and support. In the unlikely event of a problem, both products come with a standard one-year warranty. If customers wish to extend their cover, Epson CoverPlus warranty options are also available, including Epson’s rolling one-year warranty that allows customers to pay for a year at a time, rather than paying for a long term commitment upfront.

Furthermore, both models include a number of ways to help customers keep their costs low. High-capacity ink systems mean a low printing cost per square metre, while the use of Epson’s genuine inks ensures less cleaning and fewer printhead replacements are needed reducing possible downtime. Disposing of waste ink is now easier and more cost-effective as both printers now include a two-litre bottle to collect wastage. Both products are also available with Epson's managed print service programme[1], which allows tighter budget control and helps reduce overstocking.
