Epson updates dye sub with F9300

Epson has announced a new wide format dye sublimation printer, the SureColor F9300, replacing the existing F9200 model.

This Epson F9300 wide format dye sublimation printer gains a new halftone module for better image quality.

This now benefits from Epson’s updated Precision Dot technology, including a halftone module, look-up tables and micro-weave, making it easier to get good results without too much fiddling around. Strangely enough, Epson’s press release seems to imply that its input profile now works with the UltraChrome DS inks though I’m pretty sure that was always the case, and is indeed the whole point of having the profiles.

The maximum print speed is now 108.6 sqm/hr and Epson has improved the reel accuracy including for thinner papers down to 40gsm. Epson also seems to have altered the shape of the platen slightly to reduce cockling, and added a guard to protect against head strikes. There’s also a dust catcher and wiping system to reduce the maintenance, which is even more important than preventing head strikes if you want the heads to last. Naturally it comes with certification from Oeko-Tex.

Phil McMullin, Epson UK’s sales manager for Professional Printing Solutions. comments: “It’s a challenge to top a product that is already incredibly reliable, very fast and produces extremely high quality prints.  It’s faster, with improved handling of even very thin substrates, and all but eradicating cockling and other common feeding problems.”

It should be available from October.
