Epson has announced two new dye-sub printers, the SC-F7200 and SC-F6200.
Both the SC-F7200 and SC-F6200 are capable of producing high-quality printed textiles and also offer the flexibility needed to sublimate onto a range of hard substrates, the SC-F6200 is ideally suited to this application.

Martin Johns, product manager, Epson UK said: “With these two models, we have utilised 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 exclusively created and developed to help the roll-to-roll textile market create outstanding results.”
Both printers utilise 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 the creation of 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.
Both models include a number of ways to help customers keep their costs low. High-capacity ink systems help with lowering printing costs per square metre. Disposing of waste ink is now easier and more cost-effective as both printers now include a two-litre bottle to collect wastage.
