Epson launches new DTG printer

Epson has announced the launch of the SureColor SC-F2100, a DTG printer that will be commercially available from March.

The new SureColor SC-F2100, which will replace the existing SC-F2000 model, is capable of making high-quality full colour prints on a range of items including T-shirts, sweatshirts, polo shirts and tote bags.

It offers a host of enhancements and new features including improved speed and reliability, and the ability to create your own print designs using Epson’s Garment Creator software.

The printer provides a complete Epson solution including printer, print head, ink, software and warranty, meaning the user can be assured that all parts have been designed and extensively tested to work optimally together. It offers speedier results than its predecessor, with additional fast print modes and improved ink circulation for quicker start-up, and incorporates improved screening for smoother reproduction of images and a wider gamut than the previous model.

"Our first direct-to-garment printer was a great success, so following it up was always going to be a challenge," commented Epson UK sales manager Phil McMullin. "With the SC-F2100, however, we’ve managed to improve in every area – it’s faster, higher quality and more versatile, with software that makes it easy to create unique designs. And all of that is backed up with quicker, easier maintenance."

Epson’s versatile Garment Creator utility is available for free with the SC-F2100. The software allows users to add text and multiple images, create user presets for image adjustment, and provides a hot folder and CMYK image support.

The SC-F2100 has an auto-maintenance mode with a separate cleaning cartridge to substantially reduce scheduled maintenance, as well as a dust catcher to prevent fluff and dust on the print head. It comes with an optional fabric platen grip pad and platen grip tool to make garment placement easier.
