Digital imaging leader, Epson has just announced that it is set to increase the production capacity of its PrecisionCore inkjet printheads to keep ahead of the competition.

Epson PrecisionCore printheads–produced in Japan–offer blazing-fast print speeds and striking image quality. This technology is fitted primarily in office, commercial, and industrial inkjet printers.

PrecisionCore is a collective description of Epson’s thin-film piezo print head technology. This Epson-developed technology sees the convergence of its core inkjet technology with advanced microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology. To put it simply, PrecisionCore is revolutionary technology that is driving a transformation of inkjet printing.

As a company focused on providing the most value to customers, Epson Philippines’ product manager for inkjet printer, Russer Cabrera shared, “This is where Epson is currently shining the most. Our L-Series – the first and only genuine ink tank system printer in the world – offers the lowest running cost against any printer in the market that uses genuine consumables. For only P295 per black ink bottle, a user can print up to 4,000 pages. This unbelievable value, coupled with the stunning prints, reliability of the printer, and excellent after-sales support, has propelled Epson to be the leader in value share in the inkjet printer market today.”

The company is investing approximately 10 billion yen from the 2014 fiscal year (beginning April 1, 2014) through the 2015 fiscal year (ending March 31, 2015) in production lines at its Suwa Minami and Tohoku Epson PrecisionCore production sites in Japan. According to Epson, this venture will total roughly 40 billion yen by fiscal 2015, including research and development spending and capital investment over the past decade.

This investment will allow Epson to achieve its business goal, which is to strengthen its position and expand its footprint in the inkjet printer domain.
