Epson has announced details of two more dye sublimation printers. They’re transfer printers and mainly designed for textile printing such as clothing, sportswear and home textiles but can also be used for hard substrates including mugs and phone and tablet covers.
The SC-F7200 is a 1.6m wide model capable of producing up to 58.9 sqm/hr, while the SC-F6200 is 1.1m wide that can print at up to 63.4 sqm/hr. Both use Epson’s proven Precision Core printhead, which uses variable sized ink drops and is capable of resolution up to 720 x 1440dpi. Both use Epson’s UltraChrome DS ink and have a 1.5 litre ink system. They can use the HDK Black ink first seen on the bigger F9200, said to produce deep, neutral blacks for textile printing, and there’s also a standard black that’s better suited to promotional items.
The F7200 also boasts a post-platen heater for quick drying and an auto take up reel.
