Epson SureColor F9470 | Dye-Sublimation Inkjet Printer


Epson SureColor F9470

The Epson SureColor F9470 printer range delivers high-fidelity, bleed-resistant printing technology. Designed for high-precision commercial applications, the printer Epson SureColor F9470 delivers impeccable results in factory settings.

With a print speed of 1,169 square feet per hour, it’s the perfect tool for high-volume applications. Each PrecisionCore TFP print head ensures that the Epson SureColor lays the ink with precision even at high speeds.

Each Epson SureColor head can work independently of the other, ensuring no downtime should one head fail.

The innovative pigment ink produces highly saturated, vibrant color mixes. The long-lasting formula makes certain the ink stores well and that the color is fade-resistant after application. The high-density black ink ensures this printer Epson Surecolor delivers well-defined patterns without fuzziness or bleeding.

With a capacity of 3 liters per tank and two banks of cartridges, the printer can deliver many hours of uninterrupted runtime.

The innovative air guard technology allows the precise placement of ink droplets. In a standard printer, the movement of the heads creates a slight disturbance in the airflow. Though subtle, this disturbance is enough to throw the droplet placement off.

The Epson SureColor printing system incorporates safeguards to ensure smooth, consistent print quality.

To create the perfect printer, Epson SureColor utilizes three technologies to deliver precision results:

  • Half-Tone Module: This relatively new technique allows for the smooth application of ink to eliminate visible graining
  • LUT: Another new technique, LUT, smooths color gradation, providing maximum color range and consistency, and ensures high durability
  • Microweave: This established technique improves uniform results

When coupled with the Multi-Pass Overlap technology, the Epson SureColor printer delivers rich, highly-detailed prints of unsurpassed quality. It’s simple to roll out professional-level apparel, textiles, decor, banners, and far more with exceptional color fidelity and contrast.

Control the system with the free Epson Edge Workflow software. Powered by an Adobe PostScript 3 Engine, this program allows you to get maximum use from your new Epson SureColor printer.

The highlights are:

  • Custom spot colors and creation abilities
  • Clients have used Wi-Fi direct, Google Cloud Print, and ethernet cable to import new media
  • Onboard project library storage capacity
  • Flawless pattern repeats

The software enables you to maximize productivity for the printer Epson SureColor and creates an efficient workflow for each run.

The Epson SureColor auto paper-tension control guarantees that media loads correctly each time. Most comparable systems in the United States today use either a roll drive motor or feed motor. The Epson SureColor printer utilizes both to make sure that the media loads perfectly each time.

With a capacity to load rolls of up to 100 pounds in weight and auto paper-tensioning, it’s never been simpler to produce seamless print runs. Epson America Inc. also included a fabric head wiper to automatically clean the heads without intervention.

The wiper and dust guard make sure that the heads stay cleaner for longer and require less maintenance. There’s less need to shut the printer Epson SureColor system for routine cleaning than with its competitors in the United States.

Clients should not use third-party inks with their new printer as Epson SureColor warranties are voided if they do.

This condition increases the cost of topping up the tanks slightly, but the print quality makes it worthwhile. The Epson UltraChrome range also carries an Eco Passport certification by Oeko-Tex, meaning that their formulas contain nothing that harms human health.

With consumers placing more focus on the chemicals they expose themselves to, this rating gives Epson an advantage over some generic brands. There’s never a bad time to contact Epson or their authorized reseller if you need a rundown of what specific chemicals the SureColor range uses.

The Epson cartridge yields vary considerably, depending on the type of prints you make, but the replacement ink is affordable. The printer can use a variable amount of ink with each pass, so you may tweak the output to make it more economical.

With Epson America, you may save even more on UltraChrome HD ink through the customer loyalty program. You’ll need to give consent to Epson America to sign you up. After that, you buy your replacement ink through an authorized dealer.

The dual print head setup ensures that ink is evenly distributed. The printer uses a pigment ink type. The colors are more vibrant and boast a  finer ink droplet size.

The SureColor printer technology is advanced enough to allow users to vary the droplet size to alter print quality. This function enables the printer to capture even the finest detail with great accuracy.

This printer, Epson SureColor 9470, uses four colors from the Ultrachrome DS range:

  • Cyan
  • Magenta
  • Yellow
  • High-Density Black

Load the cartridges in order of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and High-Density Black. UltraChrome HD inks deliver high-resolution ink coverage for color and advanced black and white prints. The high-density black ensures results comparable to that of a photo printer model.

The Epson SureColor inkjet printer’s ink cartridge shelf life is around two years unopened. This timeframe drops to six months when the first cartridges is used or punctured.

Each of the cartridges holds 3 liters of ink to provide thousands of prints or feet of material. With two banks of cartridges, the printer Epson SureColor has space for 24 liters of ink at a time.

Epson also recommends stirring the SureColor black ink type once a week to prevent sediment from forming. They provide full instructions on how to do this in the manual.


The SureColor high-resolution ink coverage and larger cartridges help businesses better manage each variable. The rate of ink-use for the printer is simple to ascertain. This feature makes it possible to provide clients with accurate estimates upfront.

Every Epson Surecolor inkjet printer delivers on its certified level of performance as long as users follow Epson’s instructions. General printer care is simple and primarily entails cleaning the heads occasionally and using the correct Epson UltraChrome ink cartridges.

Reviews for the performance of the SureColor wide format printer in both black and white and color are favorable. Users comment that both imaging technology and printing technology are impressive.

What’s most impressive, however, is the printer’s versatility. The Epson SureColor allows printing on paper, soft textiles, or banners, increasing its usefulness. Users like switching between color prints, B-W prints, and promotional banners quickly and efficiently.
