Printhead R&D and innovation drives large format printing advancement

Epson launched its new production fine art and graphic printers, the 44-inch SureColor P10000 and 64-inch P20000, successors to the Epson Stylus Pro 11880 and designed for high-production photographic, fine art and indoor display graphics printing.

Epson also relaunched its signage and textile printers with the latest generation PrecisionCore Thin Film Piezo (TFP) printheads. The new printhead structure causes fewer vibrations, and enables more accurate ink droplets and dot placement. PrecisionCore is a scalable technology suited for products ranging from industrial systems such as large-scale label presses to desktop printers. Its modularity allows PrecisionCore print chips to be arrayed in both moving serial print head and fixed line head configurations.

Shihab Zubair, regional sales manager-professional solutions, Epson Europe, pointed out that printhead innovation is at the heart of the company’s product development process.

“Our PrecisionCore TFP printheads, demonstrated at SGI, is one of our major breakthrough innovations and is the result of one of the largest investments in research and development in Epson’s history, merging the company’s expertise in Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) fabrication with advances in material science. As a technology company that invests heavily into research and development, Epson offers the rare combination of printing machine, printhead, ink, and all other components as a complete solution available under one roof,” said Shihab.

“We have experienced strong demand for signage printing in this region with an 18% growth in 2016. With the introduction of new products and upgraded technology, we look forward to capturing larger share of the regional signage sector. Signage and textile printing is expected to grow at a faster pace as the market continues to shift from analogue to digital printing and continues to adopt new technologies,” added Shihab.
