Epson's first industrial direct-to-garment printer and has been designed for high-production print shop environments. Featuring dual printhead technology and a bulk ink pack system, the F3000 provides low ink cost and minimised waste compared to Epson cartridge systems.

Epson bills the F3000 as being designed to provide low total cost of ownership, as well as reliability for exceptional performance and savings in high-production print shop environments. The SC-F3000 is a versatile DTG solution that enables users to quickly respond to incoming orders. It features high levels of accuracy and allows businesses to deliver quick turnaround times, while producing complex designs on a variety of light and dark cotton garments.

The SC-F3000 makes t-shirt loading quick and easy. The printer uses its sensors to automatically detect the garment’s surface height and adjust accordingly, reducing both operator error and waste. Auto platen gap adjustment allows the SC-F3000 to accommodate garment thicknesses of up to 29.5mm and the addition of a second printhead helps to deliver fast print speeds. The bulk ink solution (1.5-litre ink pouches) makes reloading a simple and quick task. To further improve your printer's uptime, this DTG printer includes Epson's Production Monitor software that provides ongoing printer status information on smart devices and PCs.

The inks meet the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and you're ensured that you can comply with the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 for high-standard safety ecological textiles.

For added peace of mind, the printer is supplied with a one-year warranty as standard that can be augmented with additional Service Packs.
