Epson brings print applications to life at this year’s FESPA Global Print Expo

Wide Format Solutions

Epson (hall 4.2, stand C30) will mark the return of FESPA with a series of live printing demonstrations on its stand at this year’s show. The company will be joined by a number of its partners from across Europe to showcase the diverse printing applications and stunning results that can be achieved from its professional inkjet printers. Together they will demonstrate that it is now easier than ever before for companies to diversify into new areas and introduce additional revenue streams to their businesses.

The stand will be split into different areas, designed to bring the range of print possibilities to life.

In the promotional area, two of Epson’s desktop dye sublimation printers plus the SC-F2100 DTG printer will show how a small business or start up can expand into the personalised goods sector with a range of items such as mugs, key fobs, phone covers, mouse mats, t-shirts or cushions. The company’s first A4 dye sublimation printer, the SureColor SC-F100 is ideal when space is at a premium while the 24 inch SureColor SC-F500 offers fast turnaround times, reliability, and low total cost of ownership. The printers, which are easy to set up and use with no specialist knowledge required, will be working with a SubliTec 3D press.

Its latest direct to garment printer, the SureColor SC-F3000 together with a Schulze heat tunnel and heat press, will show a complete DTG package for designing and printing t-shirts, polo shirts, tote bags and other fabric items, ideal for higher volume and web-to-print applications.

Running every day of the show, will be the next generation direct to fabric digital textile printer, the Monna Lisa ML-8000. Designed for flexibility and sustainability, it can reach print speeds of 155 square metres per hour (600 x 600 dpi – 2 pass) with eight of the latest PrecisionCore printheads. With high print quality, productivity, stable operation, and minimal downtime, it allows easy operation at an affordable price making it ideal for companies looking to move into digital printing. The ML-8000 will be printing on cotton with pigment ink linked to a Unitech Mini Rainbow drier.

The dye sublimation SureColor SC-F9400H and SC-F10000H will both be running with fluorescent inks to show a range of applications including fashion, sportswear, home textiles and soft signage. The 64 inch SureColor SC-F9400H has two fluorescent ink solutions (yellow and pink), which brings bright vivid colours to life. The 76 inch industrial level SC-F10000H, six colour dye sublimation printer can be configured with genuine fluorescent (yellow and pink) or light inks (cyan or magenta), to expand product offerings even further.

In the signage area, Epson’s first water based resin ink large format printer, the SureColor SC-R5000L will show how easy it is to print on a wide range of substrates including wallcoverings, soft signage and fine art paper. Combining high levels of colour consistency and print accuracy, media flexibility and reliability, the printers are ideally suited for applications in more sensitive indoor settings such as schools and hospitals. There will be live wallpaper demonstrations on Tuesday and Wednesday using Papergraphics’ Digimura 1.1 Tactile high end textured wallpaper, printed on the SC-R5000L and expertly cut on the Fotoba XDL 170-WP wallpaper cutter.

The company’s first UV flatbed printer, the SureColor SC-V7000, will be on display for the first time, ideal for printing eye catching point of sale, outdoor signage, window displays, packaging and décor products. It offers a versatile range of applications across a large range of rigid substrates supplied by Multipanel UK, enabling companies to expand their portfolio of services and deliver consistently high quality results. This printer features an UltraChrome UV ink configuration, including red, grey, white and varnish.

The SureColor SC-S80600L 64 inch, 10 colour signage printer will be printing on a wide range of media including car wraps and vinyls creating superb, colour accurate prints.

Graphtec Europe will be joining Epson in the signage printing area with its FC9000-140 vinyl cutter and FCX2000-60VC flatbed cutter.

Epson signage media partners include Avery Dennison, Drytac, Innova Art, Kavalan, Multipanel UK, Neschen and Papergraphics, showcasing a variety of printing applications on different media and substrates.

Marc Tinkler, head of product marketing for commercial and industrial printing at Epson Europe, said: ‘With companies all over Europe now emerging from lockdowns, there has never been a better time to diversify into new growth markets and maximise on the revenue potential that these areas can deliver. Our range of printers on display at FESPA together with the solutions offered by many of our key partners, demonstrate just how easy and cost-effective it is for printers to do just that.’
