Adding to its range of digital textile printers, Epson has introduced its first direct-to-garment T-shirt model.
The 1440x1440dpi SureColor SC-F2000 can be configured to suit users’ specific requirements through a choice of CMYK ink for use on white garments and CMYK ink with up to four white inks for use on coloured garments, both of which are crack-resistant and provide a soft and comfortable feel.
Garment Creator software is bundled with the printer/ink package that includes a cost calculation function to monitor the amount and cost of the ink used for each print job.
Featuring Epson’s TFP print head, the SC-F2000 can print a single white T-shirt in 27 seconds using the dual-colour mode and a dark coloured T-shirt in 27 seconds using a white and colour ink. When used in conjunction with Epson’s eco-friendly UltraChrome DG ink, the printer is said to excel on dark fabrics due to the robustness of the white ink. This is circulated within the system and has been designed to reduce clogging, thereby increasing productivity and enabling fast turnaround.
