Epson’s SureColor Sublimation Printer Wins SGIA Award
Epson’s SureColor F9200 sublimation printer landed the product of the year award within the “roll-to-roll dye sublimation on textile” category at the recent Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) expo in Atlanta.
Introduced in August, the F9200 is a 64-inch dual-printhead printer capable of continuous printing at high speeds for production printing.
“We are honored to receive this significant industry award from a prominent association, representing leaders in the digital and screen-printing community,” said Tim Check, product manager, Professional Imaging for Epson America Inc., based in Long Beach, Calif. “This award underscores the impressive results customers can expect from the SureColor F9200—exceptional reliability for true industrial-level production while keeping costs at a minimum.”
The F9200 is part of Epson’s SureColor F-Series line, which includes the 44-inch SureColor F6200 and 64-inch EpsonSureColor F7200. All use Epson’s UltraChrome DS ink, which includes the company’s new high-density black ink. The F9200’s dual Epson PrecisionCore TFP printheads enable high-speed, industrial-level, roll-to-roll printing with superior dot control, according to Epson. The printer’s high-capacity three-liter ink tank and post-platen heater also contribute to high-speed production printing.
