Long Beach, CA—Epson America introduced the next-generation SureColor F6370 44-inch dye-sublimation printer. With speeds up to 680 square feet per hour, the new printer produces images for promotional products, soft signage, cut-and-sew fabrics and more.
Moreover, the SureColor F6370 comes with new Epson Edge Print workflow software, featuring an Adobe PostScript 3 engine. It also includes a built-in cutter for roll-to-sheet convenience. In addition, an optional take-up reel system allows for unattended printing.
“The award-winning SureColor F-series product line is the number one selling large-format dye-sublimation printer; we are thrilled to continue expanding the series and providing new features customers have requested,” said Tim Check, senior product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America Inc. “The SureColor F6370 includes features that improve efficiency as well as 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 for customers.”
Epson SureColor F6370 Key Features
The SureColor F6370 provides an Epson Edge dashboard; the remote printing management software offers an easy-to-use interface. It includes detailed views of current activity, ink supply levels, as well as important warnings or errors. The dashboard also allows users to manage the status of up to 10 printers. These units comprise all SureColor F-series, SureColor F-series direct-to-garment and SureColor S-Series wide-format printers.
In addition, the Epson Edge Print workflow software features an Adobe Postscript 3 engine. It provides job nesting, custom spot color, project libraries, pattern repeats and also the ability to import new media settings, when available. Furthermore, it offers the option for printshops to edit media settings and manage projects remotely.
The printer also employs Epson PrecisionCore TFP printhead technology. Moreover, it uses Epson UltraChrome DS ink packs, with 10% more ink than previously and high density black ink. As a result, the printer creates output with color saturation and contrast.
In addition, touting additional new hardware features to streamline workflow, the F6370 leverages new roll media adapters to provide support for 2-inch and 3-inch roll media cores and media up to 170mm. The new roll media adapters lock into place to prevent unwanted roll movement.
Also, an optional take-up reel, available in the fall, helps streamline roll-to-roll printing and transfer to a rotary calendar heat press. In addition, the new user-accessible maintenance panel provides access to the printhead, wiper and wiper cleaner. It also provides simple instructions to complete routine maintenance checks.
The Epson SureColor F6370 standard edition printer sells for $8,495. It comes with a standard Epson Preferred limited warranty, a one-year program that includes toll-free advanced telephone access Monday through Friday and usually next-business-day on-site service.
