Epson has unveiled a new 76-inch (1.93m-wide) dye-sub printer developed for textile production.

Following the SureColor F10000 and F10000H industrial textile printers released in 2020, the SureColor SC-F11000H features a new optional Jumbo Roll with a 300kg maximum roll weight that Epson said enables continuous production and reduced downtime due to less frequent media changes, making it suitable for uninterrupted high-volume production.

The printer is suited to applications in fashion, sportswear, home furnishings, and soft signage. It features CMYK ink configuration and includes the addition of one of three inksets: orange and violet; fluorescent yellow and fluorescent pink; and light cyan and light magenta.

Phil McMullin, head of sales for commercial and industrial at Epson UK, said: “In the dye-sublimation sector, customers demand fast turnaround times, consistent performance, high-quality output and reliability.

“With these requirements in mind, we’ve developed an industrial level dye-sublimation printer that, we believe, sets new standards.”

The SureColor SC-F11000H uses four PrecisionCore Micro TFP printheads and a bulk ink solution with 10-litre or three-litre ink boxes supported by ‘hot-swap’ function. It also features Epson Precision Dot Technology that blends three dedicated technologies for dye-sub: Halftone, LUT, and Micro Weave.

The device offers high-speed printing up to 255sqm/hr, while its dryer means there is less ink transfer to the media reverse, and wrinkle elimination. Advanced Auto Tension Control, meanwhile, offers accurate and stable media feeding.

Epson manufactures all the components for the kit, including the printheads, ink, and Epson EdgePrint Pro software.

Commercial availability for the SureColor SC-F11000H, which was shown at Drupa, began this month.
