Epson has announced its first 76in dye-sublimation printer - the SureColor SC-F10000. It will be available from September.
Epson manufactures all the components for the new machine, including printheads, ink, firmware and software.
The SC-F10000 offers speeds of up to 255m2/hr using new PrecisionCore Micro TFP printheads and Epson Precision Dot Technology (blending new Halftone, LUT and Micro Weave technologies).
It has an easy media setting (media loading lever front and back), auto-adjustment technology including an integrated RGB camera, a new dryer for less ink transfer to the reverse of the media and wrinkle elimination, an advanced auto tension control (Ad-ATC), and operator-replaceable parts. Ink comes in 10-litre or 3-litre ink boxes supported by ‘hot-swap’ function.
Tom Owers, pro graphics product manager, Epson UK, said: “We’ve developed an industrial level dye-sublimation printer that, we believe, sets new standards. The SC-F10000 offers the highest throughput of all Epson LFPs and is equipped with four new PrecisionCore Micro TFP printheads and a ‘hot-swap’ bulk ink solution that’s designed to keep businesses running. Our heritage is built on innovation and this is one of those moments in which we’re raising the benchmark for productivity in dye-sublimation.”
