At Heimtextil (12-15 January 2016, Messe Frankfurt, Stand E15 Hall 4.0) Epson Europe will showcase its latest range of SureColor dye sublimation printers developed for the production of home textiles and decorated housewares. Easy-to-use and affordable, the printers offer complete flexibility for anyone looking to produce small-to-medium volumes of high-quality bespoke interior décor products.
The SureColor SC-F6200 and SC-F9200 printers feature Epson’s PrecisionCore technology and TFP printheads for consistent and reliable results. For users wishing to print larger volumes of home textiles with superb colour and clarity, the SC-F9200 64-inch printer offers the complete solution. Working in tandem with Epson’s high-density HDK Black ink it produces deep, neutral blacks and dense shadows with the added benefit of two high-capacity ink supply systems meaning longer, uninterrupted print runs and less time spent replenishing inks. The flexible SC-F6200 44-inch printer meanwhile, is capable of producing a wide range of high-quality printed home textiles and also ideally suited to sublimation onto hard substrates such as table tops, mugs, cutlery, vases and coasters.
Working in association with a young designer, the whole of the Epson stand will feature a customised design implemented across multiple media and products to showcase the considerable potential and opportunity that Epson technology gives to designers and home textile producers. Included in the display will be curtains and bed linen produced on high-quality cotton and linen fabrics using the latest Monna Lisa Vinci and Monna Lisa Evo Tre digital textile printers, designed by F.lli Robustelli and based on Epson technology, in cooperation with For.tex.
During Heimtextil, Epson will also team up with DMI, the German Fashion Institute, to show textile designers and producers how they can create, proof – using an Epson Stylus Pro 4900 printer – and digitally print their textile colours all the way from mood board to the final product using Spring-Summer 2017 trend colours.
Finally, visitors to the stand will also see the Epson SureColor SC-F2000 direct-to-textile printer in action as it prints directly on to fabric and personalises aprons, cushions and other textile products.
Richard Barrow, Senior Product Manager, Epson Europe, says: “Epson offers a range of reliable and flexible inkjet printers to deliver exactly the benefits the textile industry needs - an opportunity to create and produce a wide range of customised home textiles and products easily and cost-effectively. At Heimtextil, we aim to show that, using Epson technology, anyone can achieve superior-quality results on textiles and rigid substrates.”
