Introducing the EPSON SureColor F2100 Direct-to-Garment Printer

When Epson unveiled the original SureColor F2000 printer a few years ago, it set the benchmark in high-performance direct-to-garment imaging. With the announcement of the new SureColor F2100 White Edition, Epson has raised the DTG bar again, offering improvements in productivity, print quality and reliability.

Compared to screen printing, this DTG technology significantly simplifies digitally printing t-shirts, sweatshirts, tote bags and more, whether you’re printing one or 100.

One of the factors contributing to the improvement of image quality, print speed and brightness is a second coating of white ink and simultaneous printing of color and white inks. As is the case with the F2000, the Epson pretreatment fluid is required when using white ink, as it aids in the durability and opacity of the ink. Also, Epson’s Precision Dot technology features variable size ink droplet control for better print quality and 10% greater range of color.

The latest Epson DTG technology requires minimal user maintenance because of the inline automatic cleaning system. With this upgrade, no ink is used during the cleaning process and there’s no need to manually wash the tubes after daily use. Total time of maintenance has dropped to about 10 minutes per week, lessening the ink waste and labor cost associated with printer upkeep.

The SureColor F2100 will start shipping in March. If you have questions about bringing garment printing in-house to offer custom images for your clients or for more information on the Epson SureColor F2100, contact a LexJet sales representative at 800-453-9538.

How-to Video: Loading Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-Series Printers

The launch of the new Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-Series printers has been successful for many reasons (e.g.: smaller footprint, improved print performance and speed), but one notable improvement over previous incarnations of Canon printers is the ease with which paper can be loaded. In just a few steps, you can load single or multiple rolls of media, keeping downtime to a minimum.

Select “New Roll” on panel

The media loading process is so simplified, a beep and a button push is all it takes to let you know that the paper is ready to go. The only time manual adjustment is needed is if the printer detects an alignment issue.

Michael Clementi, LexJet’s tech specialist, reviewed these printers last summer. At that time, he noted that Canon had reduced some of the clumsiness that occurred with the older models: “With just a quick beep and a button push, the printer takes the media into the printer and registers it. No more opening up the top hatch and lining up the paper.”
