Designed to provide low total cost of ownership (TCO) and reliability for high-production print shop environments, the SureColor F3070 is Epson’s first direct-to-garment printer to leverage dual printhead technology and a bulk ink pack system, providing remarkably low ink cost and minimised waste compared to Epson cartridge systems.
“The printed textile market is seeing tremendous growth, complemented by new printing technology innovation,” said Tim Check, Senior Product Manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “We are committed to driving the digital textile market and excited to expand Epson’s award-winning product line to deliver our first industrial direct-to-garment printer for high-production print shops. Designed for mid-to-large size garment printers looking for a high-production, cost-effective equipment, the SureColor F3070 can produce a full-size shirt in about a minute, allowing shops to print hundreds of shirts per day.”
The printer leverages a new dual 2.6-inch PrecisionCore printhead for high-quality output at production speeds with true one-pass printing for both colour and white ink. Coupled with the first bulk ink system integrated into an Epson direct-to-garment printer, it is capable of housing 1.5 litres per colour and 3.0 litres of white ink for less frequent refilling, lower operating costs, and less waste.
First ever automatic printhead height adjustment is set based on garment thickness and texture for optimal print quality without user interference, and easily switches between thin t-shirts and thick sweatshirts with less downtime between garments. Built for reliability, the SureColor F3070 features an ultra-durable linear rail system and CNC milled print carriage, designed for years of production, and features user serviceable parts, including printheads, and low maintenance time ideal for high production print on-demand service providers, fulfilment houses and in-house print on-demand production.
The SureColor F3070 (estimated MSRP $49,995 (€45,085) offers a standard Epson PreferredSM Limited Warranty, limited on-site warranty with US-based phone support. The Epson SureColor F3070 will be available in July 2020 through Epson Authorised Professional Imaging Resellers.
