Dye sublimation offers significant benefits over traditional screen printing. Digital image processing enables easier image creation and editing, more output control, and more flexible production with superior consistency. It is considerably quicker and less expensive for short to medium production runs, requires less labour, involves less materials, and less wastage. Printing is mess free and production can occur in a relatively small amount of space. Job turnaround is faster and repeat runs can be undertaken at the push of a button. While the process generally only suits fabrics with a high polyester content, it can also be used with a range of other materials that will accept a polyester spray and withstand the heat + pressure of the transfer process. A wide range of products can be produced including fabric banners and metal signage, timber furniture finishes and sporting goods, phone covers and tablet cases, footwear ('thongs') and sportswear, wall decorations and home décor.

The SureColor F6460 runs off a standard 240V power supply and can be driven by a moderately powered PC. The printer ships with Epson Edge Print PRO software that enables production of quality material with outstanding colour, precision, and consistency. It is built on an advanced Adobe Postscript engine that supports source files in PS, EPS, PDF, TIFF, JPEG and PNG formats. It provides basic functions such as copy, position, trim and nest, as well as advanced functions such as tiling, step and repeat. Unlike traditional RIP software that can often be difficult to use, it features a simple interface that is designed to emulate the output so what you see on screen is what you get on the page. The printer also features an integrated Epson Cloud Solution PORT server. When activated, PORT provides convenient web/app based reporting and management while also facilitating advanced back-end support.1

1 A PC with reasonable processing power, memory, storage, and networking facilities will be required. For full functionality and maximum performance Ethernet connection is strongly recommended. Epson Edge Print is a Windows only application. The independent sourcing of appropriate transfer equipment will be required. After-sales service is co-ordinated by Epson in conjunction with our Authorised Reseller network. Service may be restricted or limited when equipment is used outside of specification, with non-Epson consumables and if Epson Cloud Solution PORT is not activated. For further details please refer to our Warranty and CoverPlus statements.
2 This printer is designed for operation exclusively with Epson UltraChrome DS ink. The ink ensures accurate colour with reliable and durable mechanical operation. HDk was traditionally only recommended for fabric work however the upgraded print head and Precision Dot Technology featured in this model now enables hard surface work. The extended ink sets available for the 6c SC-F6460H must be ordered separately and in pairs. Sets cannot be combined and once the printer has been initialised the set cannot be changed.
3 The ATU is optional with the SC-F6460. It comes standard with the SC-F6460H. It accepts media from 17” (432mm) to 44” (1118mm) wide and 13kg max weight. It is generally recommended that a 3rd party dryer be employed, particularly for operation at high-speed and/or with heavy ink loads.
