Epson introduced the new Surecolor F2000 Series of direct to garment printers at the PRINT 13 Expo, which took place from 8-12 September in Chicago.
The series delivers industrial-level production, image quality, and reliability. With the ability to print directly onto garments – t-shirts, hoodies, jackets, tote bags, and more – ranging from 100 percent cotton to 50/50 fabric blends, the SureColor F2000 Series offers additional revenue opportunities for garment print shops of any size.
The printers leverage Epson UltraChrome® DG ink technology – an all new, garment ink formulation developed specifically for the Epson MicroPiezo® TFP® print head delivering precise and repeatable performance, image quality, and high reliability. The Epson SureColor F2000 Standard Edition is a high-speed CMYK-only model and the Epson SureColor F2000 White Edition offers the added benefit of white ink for printing on dark or colour fabrics.
‘For more than three years, Epson dedicated a team of mechanical, chemical, and software engineers to create an all-new imaging technology designed for printing directly to garments,’ said Larry Kaufman, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. ‘Delivering superior print quality and reliability to generate more revenue, these DTG printers offer versatility and customiSation for high-profit, short-run jobs.’
