Epson (Los Alamitos, California) has added two new 44-inch, wide-format dye-sublimation printers – the SureColor F6470 and SureColor F6470H. Designed to maximize productivity for print businesses, the 4-colour SureColor F6470 and 6-colour SureColor F6470H generate fast output for quickly and efficiently producing high-quality transfer images. The new models will be available in early 2023, will replace the SureColor F6370, and will join Epson’s growing line of SureColor F-Series dye-sublimation printers.
Built to create custom printed products, the SureColor F6470 generates 4-colour output at speeds up to 820 ft2/hr., producing high-quality images for promotional and personalized goods, apparel, home décor, soft signage and more. The SureColor F6470H prints 6-colour output at speeds up to 400 ft2/hr. and allows for multiple ink configurations to meet various colour needs (CMYK plus either Light cyan/light magenta, fluorescent pink/fluorescent yellow, or orange/violet). The expanded colour options make it deal for producing photographic panels, flags and banners while also meeting branding colour requirements for corporate clients, said the OEM.
The new models feature a 1.33-inch PrecisionCore MicroTFP printhead with Nozzle Verification Technology (NVT) for consistent print quality. An integrated ink-pack system utilizing 1.6-litre UltraChrome DS Ink Packs allow the printers to continuously deliver rich colour saturation and contrast. Designed with ease of use in mind, both models come with a 4.3-inch touchscreen control panel, an easily accessible maintenance area, a built-in cutter for roll-to-sheet convenience, and a media take-up reel system for unattended printing.
