Epson F2160 – raises the bar in productivity and efficiencysublimation
The F2160 was designed from the ground up to provide a complete single-vendor solution with simpler operation, higher durability, and superior imaging. The F2160 is Epson’s latest generation direct-to-garment (DTG) printer. It features enhanced production flexibility, higher productivity, reduced maintenance, and a lower running cost. Optimised for customisation and value-adding on cotton-based garments such as T-shirts, Polo tops, jeans and sweats, it will image onto a range of polyester sports and leisurewear, and can also be used for promotional and décor items including tote bags, tea towels and cushions. Prints can be made on pre-cut fabric or directly to finished garments with a heat press used to ‘fix’ the dye. The printer can be ordered in a 4 colour configuration for high-speed volume production as well as a 5 colour configuration for flexible CYMK + white work. Hardware is covered by a comprehensive on-site warranty with service cover extendable for up to five years.
The SC-F2160 uses advanced Epson UltraChrome® DG ink and our latest PrecisionCore™ print head technology. The print head supports resolutions of up to 1440 x 1440 dpi for exceptional precision and consistency. Enhanced imaging and positional adjustment have enabled improved print quality. Ink consumption has been reduced and density is adjustable to enable variable levels of quality and finish.

The SC-F2160 in 4C configuration will print a full-sized T-shirt in 9-15s while the 5C configuration will complete a multi-pass print in 52-87s. It ships complete with a standard sized platen to enable a single operator to produce standard adult t-shirt sizes as well as common merchandise items. Additional platens can be ordered separately to suit work environments with multiple operators and separate preparation, pre-treatment and/or fixing stations. Optional platens are also available to suit oversized garments, garments with zippers & buttons, child sizes, sleeve and pocket panels.
The F2160 is designed to ensure enhanced reliability with a reduced running cost.
