Epson America (Long Beach, California) has unveiled its next-generation SureColor F6370 44-inch Dye-Sublimation Inkjet Printer. Featuring speeds up to 680 square feet per hour, the new printer quickly produces high-quality images for promotional products, soft signage, cut-and-sew fabrics and more. Designed for ease-of-use, the intuitive SureColor F6370 comes equipped with new Epson Edge Print workflow software, featuring an Adobe PostScript 3 Engine, as well as a built-in cutter for roll-to-sheet printing, plus an optional take-up reel system for unattended printing. The new model replaces the SureColor F6200 to join Epson’s line of SureColor F-Series printers, including the SureColor F9370 and SureColor F7200.
“The award-winning SureColor F-Series product line is the number one selling large-format dye-sublimation printer, and we’re thrilled to continue expanding the series and providing new features that customers have requested,” said Tim Check, Senior Product Manager of Professional Imaging at Epson America. “The SureColor F6370 includes features that improve efficiency and productivity – including the new Epson Edge software designed to streamline workflow applications and provide customers with the information they need to produce high-quality output that meets the needs and turnaround times of customers.”
The SureColor F6370 also comes equipped with Epson Edge dashboard, a remote printing management software featuring an easy-to-use, intuitive interface with detailed views on current activity, ink supply levels, and important warnings or errors. The dashboard allows users to manage the status of up to ten printers, including all SureColor F-Series, SureColor F-Series Direct-to-Garment, and SureColor S-Series of wide-format printers. The Epson Edge Print workflow software features an Adobe Postscript 3 engine and includes job nesting, custom spot colours, project libraries, pattern repeats and the ability to import new media settings, when available. Also provided is the ability to edit media settings and manage projects remotely.
Utilizing Epson PrecisionCore TFP printhead technology and Epson UltraChrome DS ink packs with High Density Black, the SureColor F6370 produces output with vibrant colour saturation and contrast, said the OEM. The new printer also leverages new roll media adapters to provide support for 2-inch and 3-inch roll media cores, and media up to 170 mm. The new roll media adapters lock into place to prevent unwanted roll movement, and new built-in cutter for additional convenience. An optional take-up reel aids in streamlining roll-to-roll printing and transferring to a rotary calendar heat press. In addition, the new user-accessible maintenance panel provides easy access to the printhead, wiper and wiper cleaner, and features simple instructions to complete routine maintenance checks.
