Sublimation A4 printer   EpsonSureColor SC-F100



The first A4 sublimation printer (EcoTank) from Epson, suitable for printing to ceramics and textiles.

Very compact dimensions, easy operation with several buttons on the front panel with 2.4 "LCD, easy paper loading, easy ink replenishment, connection via WIFI / LAN / USB ... all this makes the printer attractive for home or novice users in the field of sublimation printing.

The printer is also interesting for professional users, as it is

the first small-format sublimation printer, where the printer - ink - sublimation paper - driver - ICC is manufactured and guaranteed technically and guaranteed by one and the same company..

The EcoTank system
does not use ink cartridges, which are always a bit more expensive, but the ink is added directly to the printer's high-capacity cartridges in a simple but at the same time absolutely clean way (where there is no risk of splashing) from separate and economically advantageous 140ml bottles.

Printer specific features :

*  Printer / driver settings / but also ICC profile integration
   performs automatically during printer installation - considerable
   simplification for home users
*  Quality printing thanks to Epson PrecisionCore Micro TFP heads 
*  Very low printing costs
*  WIFI / USB / LAN interface
*  A4 / 150 sheet tray
In addition, as is generally the case for Epson printers, the printer driver and firmware are automatically updated via the Internet while the printer is in use.




    We recommend this printer to anyone looking for a simple printer for installation / operation / maintenance, a printer of smaller dimensions,
  in addition to very reasonable price with very cheap sublimation ink and a 1-year Carry in warranty (or 6,000 sheets) for the entire set

Open the printer box. On the left side ( see fig. ) You have all 4 bottles of ink, it also includes a quick guide, warranty card and power cord.

Remove the printer and remove any packing material
( If you do not install the printer immediately, leave the ink in the original vacuum plastic bag )






Ink installation

The first ink refill is performed with the printer turned off !

After unpacking the printer :

* Open the top large printer cover

* Then the smaller cap on the right above the ink tanks and prepare the ink bottles.

Before unpacking the ink bottles, shake them - according to the instructions 15 times within 5 seconds, when shaking you will feel that the ink no longer overflows in the bottle.
Unpack and prepare the bottles

Flip the blue lever above the cartridge up - you can start from the left of the black and at the same time unscrew the plastic cap from the black ink bottle  

Turn the bottle downwards ( it is sealed, nothing will leak from it ) and insert it ORIENTED ( ie the wings longitudinally ) into the slot of the black cartridge ( see picture ) .... ink gradually starts to flow out of the bottle. If the ink does not flow, you can try to extend / retract the bottle or "very gently" turn it right / left in the inserted state.
Never squeeze the bottle - the ink will leak out by itself

Fill the container to the top line ( marked in
red ), then remove the bottle, close the lid well and store the rest for further refilling ( store the bottles upright in a darker place - out of UV range )

Close the cartridge lever and repeat the entire process for all colors -
each color of ink in the same color-coded cartridge

Finally, close the color cartridge cover and the printer cover

To adjustment




Before making print quality settings, load sublimation paper in the printer to print control images

A4 paper

For A4 format, you have a front tray in which you can load 150 papers (adjust the plastic guides inside this tray to this size, max. Paper thickness is 0.12 mm)
Install the sublimation paper with the print
(whiter) side DOWN

If you make a mistake and install the paper upside down - nothing happens - only after printing on the wrong side is the printed image noticeably less contrasty (subli paper / Epson DSA4).

If you use Texprint / SubliPrime paper, the back of the paper is clearly marked with a logo

Epson recommends genuine paper for this printer

If over time you feel that the images are either too red / blue ... please always start with this check.
