pson has released its first 76-inch large-format printer in its LFP history. The SureColor SC-F10000 is a sophisticated, dye sublimation printer that has been developed for the textile production market; where high productivity, speed and reliability are central to the success of the business. The numerous applications include: fashion, sportswear, home furnishings, promotional goods and soft signage. Tom Owers, pro graphics product manager, Epson UK said: “In the dye sublimation sector, customers demand fast turnaround times, consistent performance, high-quality output and reliability.

raphtec GB has partnered with Portugal-based WID Innovations and is now the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor for the L300 Laminator and the soon to be announced C Series of Laser Cutting machines.

The L300 can be used for both thermal and cold laminating applications to accommodate different production requirements and media preferences. Using the machine for cold lamination, power consumption is reduced and the need for special operational skills and closer consideration of environmental issues less critical than for thermal lamination and with operating costs commensurately lower as a result. Conversely, when used for thermal lamination the L300 will impart greater strength and durability to laminated
