Achieve industrial reliability and round-the-clock productivity, all at a low total cost of ownership, ($89,995) with the breakthrough SureColor® F10070 printer. Our most advanced dye-sublimation printer to date, the F10070 features four, all-new 4.7" PrecisionCore® printheads to deliver roll-to-roll performance at speeds up to 2,700 sqft/hr1.

Handles up to 132lb of roll paper up to 9.8” in diameter. (jumbo rolls) Gonna need a Foster roll lifter and we have them! Also, if you buy this big bad guy, we have 1.9 meter oil filled rotary heat transfer presses, so give us a call. Here’s my take on this new system;
Sort of a stupid move to buy into this system at $89,995 and have to deal with Epson direct which is certainly no fun, at this price, you can buy 6 of the Epson SCF9470PE units that do standard 64” and common paper roll sizes and not have to mess around waiting for service when one goes down, simply use one of your extra 5 redundant units. Sort of the “Hub & Spoke” method and with production speeds of 1,169 feet per hour, the F9470 x 5 units gets you 5,845 feet per hour, compared to 1 of the $89,995 F10070 doing roughly HALF the productivity ???
Moral; Local Value-Added Support & Service, Local Supplies and TWICE the productivity, my bet is on using the F9470PE as the workhorse dye sub printer of choice!
