Epson launches Precision Core tech
CHICAGO—Epson unveiled a new inkjet head technology at Print 13 that the company says is completely scalable from desktop printers to industrial printing systems.

Called Precision Core, the technology is based on micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS). One of the largest research investments in Epson’s history, it uses an ultra thin actuator on the print head that pumps out ink quickly and precisely. The result is a head that puts out two to three times the resolution of Epson’s conventional piezo heads delivering drops that range from 1.5 to 32.5 picoliters.

The first product with the technology is the SurePress L-6034 inkjet label press announced at Label Expo last week. That particular model prints at 600 x 600 dpi at 15 m per minute.

But, according to the company, the technology can be adapted to many applications and printing devices. At Print 13 it was being demoed to print t-shirts. The printed area was soft and barely discernable to the touch.
