On the Epson India website, a featured dye-sublimation printer is the SureColor SC-F6270 44. This dye-sublimation transfer printer incorporates advancements in inkjet printing technology, including Epson’s exclusive PrecisionCore TFP printhead and its all-new high-density black ink, delivering what is claimed to be an excellent performance at affordable running costs.

The 44-inch inkjet for dye-sublimation is designed with extreme reliability for sheet-based production and has a large capacity 1.5-liter ink tank for each color. It is suited for short-volume custom clothing, soft signage, merchandise, and hard surface work.

Engineered for continuous production, the SC-F6270 delivers high print quality at high speeds with class-leading speeds of up to 63.4 square meters an hour. On 21 August, Epson unveiled its high volume 76-inch dye-sublimation printer in the US, which runs at almost four times the speed of the SC-F6270.

Lightfast, washable and safe for children’s garments

The one-year warranty includes the printheads. High-volume printing relies not only on the printheads but on Epson’s UltraChrome DS ink and ink tank system. The UltraChrome DS ink has excellent light and wash-fastness as well as resistance to alkaline and acid perspiration.

Epson’s UltraChrome DS ink contributes to a healthy work environment with its 100% nickel and fluorine-free formulation that allows for printed textiles and garments to be certified safe for babies and toddlers three years old under the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Class 1 criteria.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
