Epson is showcasing the commercial strengths of its Micro Piezo print head technology and the outstanding qualities of its inks through a range of new devices and applications on its stand at PacPrint 09. PacPrint 09 is on in Melbourne on 26-30 May.
To focus attention on the renowned global reputation of its print quality the Epson stand [Stand # L50] follows the theme: Epson. The name behind print.
“For more than 15 years Epson has been the name behind the print in large format printing for professionals worldwide,” said Craig Heckenberg, Business Unit Manager, Large Format Division, Epson Australia.
“World renowned photographers, image makers and leading print companies have all successfully and confidently staked their reputations on Epson printer, ink and media technology,” said Craig.
“Now the scope of application for Epson’s Micro Piezo technology as a manufacturing technique is ever widening and its strengths – being able to accurately place ink droplets onto various substrates without direct contact, and its compatibility with different ink substances because it is a cool process – are being used to print textiles, create colour filters for large LCD televisions and in the manufacture of circuit boards.
“At PacPrint we will be displaying innovative print solutions and showing visitors the revenue opportunities available to print service providers and graphic arts professionals, from CD/DVD publishing to large format printing; pre-press to fine art printmaking.
“Visitors to our stand will see our latest solutions and the technologies that increase productivity and reduce costs,” he said.
At PacPrint, Epson will be joined on its stand by six strategic industry partners that will demonstrate Epson’s innovative technology in digital inkjet printing across a wide range of vertical market applications.
CGS, EFI, GMG, Blackmagic, ColorGATE, and ONYX will be producing prints for a number of different digital print applications which include; hard-copy digital proofs based on ISO12647, signage, professional photography and fine art print making.
As well as the complete range of Epson Stylus Pro large format printers and proofers on the stand, Epson will have three new innovative products that use Epson’s award winning Micro Piezo inkjet print heads and inks:
