Recently, Seiko Epson Corporation has completed construction work on a new factory at its Hirooka Office in Shiojiri, Japan. According to Epson, the new factory will be used to produce PrecisionCore print chips, a core component of Epson’s most advanced PrecisionCore inkjet printheads. The new factory, which will begin operations soon will triple current PrecisionCore print chip production capacity.
Under its Epson 25 Corporate Vision, Epson is targeting the office, commercial, and industrial printing markets. Epson will continue to strengthen its lineup of commercial and industrial large-format printers, and will boost both its R&D and manufacturing capability.
The new factory will enable Epson to expand its presence in these markets in addition to bolstering its ability to handle an expected medium-range increase in demand for printheads. By leveraging its production capacity, Epson also plans to rollout sales of its PrecisionCore printheads for large-format printers worldwide, and work with its partners to accelerate the shift to digital in commercial and industrial printing.
