Epson SureColor SC-F9480H and SC-F9480: Sublimation printers with fluorescent inks
Although fluorescent inks certainly represent a niche in the market compared to the broader demand for traditional colors, companies can undoubtedly benefit from the possibility of offering printing with such inks.
The new Epson SureColor SC-F9480H is the first model of the Japanese manufacturer that allows printing with fluorescent yellow and fluorescent pink on fabrics and clothes, soft signage (flags, etc.) and promotional items.
This is the most significant difference between the SC-F9480H and the SC-F9480, which are otherwise identical in their ability to print on objects up to 64 inches wide.
With this new series, Epson also introduces other innovations: instructions on the use and maintenance of the printers are provided via a video accessible by a QR code; there is a wider selection of EMX files; the print head is protected to control the air flow; an automatic fiber removal system prevents the occlusion of the nozzles.
