DCC Print Vision has introduced Epson’s SureColor SC-F9430H printer, which is capable of printing fluorescent colours. DCC is the sole representative for Epson’s dye sublimation kit in India. Speaking about this new addition in the DCC’s product portfolio, Santosh Nair, the company’s associate director-business strategy, said, “With this machine, we are adding fluorescent colours in the signage space, which will not only boost the colour gamut but also provide better quality and colours for the signage industry.”
Ideal for medium to large-volume roll-to-roll custom fabric, textile and soft signage, the SureColor SC-F9430H offers fluorescent brightness and colour density like never before, giving life to print applications such as fabric flags, fast fashion, and home furnishings such as curtains and cushions. Epson’s new genuine fluorescent dye-sub ink encompasses both fluorescent yellow fluorescent pink ink to offer bright, consistent and high quality vivid prints on many types of fabric.
With the introduction of a genuine fluorescent solution (yellow and pink), this 64-inch high performance roll-to-roll dye-sublimation printer sports dual printheads and comes with features such as fluorescent ink for vibrant & outstanding prints, advanced precision media feeding system, UltraChrome DS ink and precision dot technology are meant to deliver impeccable prints. The SC-F9430H is an evolution of trusted Epson print technology and provides enhanced quality with even greater productivity and reliability.
The machine, which can print at 60sqm/h, will soon become the trend setter owing to its cost-effectiveness, according to Nair. “The need of the hour in the signage industry is all about textile, safe environment and new revenue streams for the print service providers. We want to expand our capabilities in the signage space,” he said adding that the machine is Eco Passport-certified – an independent certification system by Oeko-Tex, for chemicals, colourants and auxiliaries used in the textile and leather industry.
Nair insists that at DCC, environment is very crucial and that’s where the company is bringing in Eco Passport and all other kind of certifications, which are not yet prevalent in the signage industry. “We are looking at giving a new level of quality with cost efficiency in signage,” he said adding that change is inevitable and that the time is right for leading with a visible difference in the signage space. “If you’re not taking the risk, you’re not going to change.”
The next target would be the billboard space, where this machine is under testing. “But it is something that we are very ambitious about. The good thing is that this machine is specified under the Technology Upgradation Fund Scheme (TUFS) – a Government of India initiative to reduce the capital cost for the textile industry – where the MSMEs could get a 10% rebate on the machine.
