Following the success of the 76-inch SureColor F10000 and F10000H industrial textile printers, in 2020, Epson has announced a new 76-inch textile printer. The SureColor SC-F11000 dye-sublimation printer has been developed for textile production where high productivity, speed, quality and reliability are central to the success of the business.

The SC-F11000H has been designed for maximum up-time, with its optional jumbo roll, which enables continuous production and reduced downtime due to less frequent media changes. Tailored to applications in fashion, sportswear, home furnishings and soft signage, the SC-F11000H features CMYK ink configuration and the addition of one of three ink sets: orange and violet; fluorescent yellow and fluorescent pink; and light cyan and light magenta.

Phil McMullin, head of sales for commercial and industrial, Epson UK, said: ‘In the dye-sublimation sector, customers demand fast turnaround times, consistent performance, high-quality output and reliability. With these requirements in mind, we’ve developed an industrial level dye-sublimation printer that, we believe, sets new standards. The SC-F11000 offers the highest throughput of all Epson LFPs and is equipped with four 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.’

Epson manufactures all the components for the SC-F11000 and SC-F11000H, including printheads, ink and Epson EdgePrint Pro software, to further improve consistency, quality and reliability.
