As textile imaging continues the rapid transition from
analog to digital, Epson America today bridges the gap further with the introduction of its next-
generation SureColor® F-Series dye-sublimation transfer printers. The 44-inch Epson®
SureColor F6200 and 64-inch Epson SureColor F7200 and F9200 leverage Epson
UltraChrome® DS ink with an all new high density Black ink to deliver improved ink efficiency
and black density with better tonal transitions and grayscale for high quality results in the roll-to-
roll fabric production, customized promotional production, soft signage, and cut-and-sew sports
apparel, fashion, and home décor markets.

The flagship SureColor F9200 printer utilizes dual Epson PrecisionCore® TFP® printheads for
high-speed, industrial-level roll-to-roll productivity with superior dot control and precise,
repeatable performance. Each printer offers continuous productivity and less downtime with an
integral and easily refillable, high-capacity bulk ink system and an improved post-platen heater
for seamless media handling and faster drying times for continuous production.

“Since Epson launched its first true dye-sublimation printers in 2013, we have been diligently
working to enhance the technology to meet the demands of industrial manufacturers,” said Tim
Check, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “Now with the flagship
SureColor F9200 providing double the speed and a high-capacity three liter per color ink supply
system, users can print much more efficiently, and with far fewer interruptions.”

Equipped with a highly accurate take up reel, the Epson SureColor F-Series allow for maximum
uninterrupted production runs with minimal maintenance downtime. The printers also come with
a Wasatch SoftRIP workflow that enables users to start printing sellable output immediately out
of the box with specialty features for textile printing. A complete and proven dye-sublimation
printer solution, the SureColor F-Series is compatible with Epson’s line of dye-sublimation
transfer papers and designed to work exclusively with Epson UltraChrome DS Ink to ensure
optimized output quality at industrial-level production1.
