The "Big E" (Epson) Enters the Direct-To-Garment T-Shirt Printing Market--Welcome SureColor SC-F2000

The Big E--Epson--seem to be entering all segments of digital imaging and now have a new product called the SureColor SC-F2000 Direct-to-Garment printer. Additionally the pricing of the new SureColor SC-F2000 starts at around $20,000 and for dark and black does not include the pre-coater which costs an added $6,000.

Shipping in October of this year, the SureColor SC-F2000, offers either dual CMYK or CMYK plus White imaging for t-shirt and garment production. The t-shirt printing speed is approximately 27 seconds for light and white and 111 seconds for dark and black. The SureColor SC-F2000 still does not measure up to the speed offered by OKI LED transfer products, such as the GO UNO, pro920WT or 711WT. Of course OKI based transfer units offer speed of about 2 seconds per transfer. When pricing is considered with the speed there is no doubt the OKI based products offer the best value. Watch for more comparison information on the EPSON SureColor SC-F2000 verses the GO UNO, OKI 920WT and OKI 711WT in future blogs.
