The SC-F2130 can be used by MSMEs for t-shirt printing, online t-shirt retailing, high and low volume printing companies as well as corporates to produce branded workwear or promotional items.

The machine uses Epson’s Epson PrecisionCore TFP printhead and UltraChrome DG garment ink technology. Mr Satyanarayana, director of Large-format printers, Epson India said, “The SureColor F2130 achieves up to twice the speeds of the previous generation DTG printers. Users can print and dispatch completed garments in as fast as 27 seconds.”

The SC-F2130 printer will replace the existing SC-F2000 model and is expected to lower costs with improved speeds and reliability.

The machine has additional improvements like a quick-load platen and Epson Garment Creator software. He said, “This takes productivity even further, while the all-new integrated self-cleaning system means less downtime.”

The DTG printer has been re-designed with an automated maintenance design that includes a cleaning cartridge configured to automatically clean the print head cap, enabling continuous operations and reducing manual maintenance efforts.

Its new white ink filter system improves ink flow, further preventing ink build-up for improved reliability and performance. “The new SC-F2130 comes with a new ink circulation algorithm that shortens waiting time before the start of next print job, improving turnaround time,” Mr Satyanarayana.

The Epson Garment Creator software has also been re-designed, to enhance the workflow of the printing process. Users can save predefined colour management and layout control presets. Also, users can get cost estimates before a job is sent to print.
