Epson introduces SureColor Dye-Sublimation Printer in America
Epson America launched on January 17, 2014 its latest dye-sublimation printer designed for the roll-to-roll digital textile market
The new Epson® SureColorTM F7170 joins the complete line of SureColor F-Series printers, including the F6070 and F7070, and integrates true roll-to-roll support for unmatched levels of performance, reliability, and image quality for the fabric production and soft signage markets.
Designed exclusively by Epson, the optimiosed Epson MicroPiezo® TFP® print head and Epson UltraChrome® DS ink system enables the SureColor F7170 to deliver high quality printing for a range of dye-sublimation applications with superior dot control, precise and repeatable performance and excellent longevity. A new highly accurate take-up reel and substrate system delivers winding accuracy between zero and .19 inches on transfer paper rolls for a wide range of digital textile applications, including flags, banners, home furnishings, and apparel manufacturing. Built for increased productivity, the SureColor F7170 also features a high capacity ink tank system with refillable bags to allow continuous printing through a full roll of media, without running cleaning cycles, and a new post-platen heater for faster drying times.
According to Catalin Frank, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “the SureColor F7170 was designed to enable digital textile producers to increase productivity, minimise downtime and maximise profitability. The combined power of Epson’s MicroPiezo TFP print head technology, with an advanced feature set, and industrial level performance, enables customers to manage high quality dye-sublimation printing across a range of applications, all day, everyday”.
The Epson SureColor F7170 will begin shipping in summer 2014 through Epson’s select F-Series dealers. The product offers a standard Epson Preferred (SM) Limited Warranty, a one-year-program that includes toll-free advanced telephone access Monday through Friday, and usually next business-day on-site service.
