When Mercedes-AMG Petronas took its fourth consecutive FIA Formula One World Constructors Championship, it was the third successive championship title in partnership with Epson.
Since the partnership began in 2015, some 130 Epson products have been integrated into team operations at the HQ, and at the 20 Formula One tracks worldwide, which the company says showcases Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsports’ belief in Epson products to deliver when speed and reliability are crucial.
Epson says its extensive range of products enables it to equip Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport with products specific to their requirements. For example, its SureColor T-Series printers allow high-precision CAD drawings, whereas its WorkForce Pro printers allow high-speed and reliable printing in potentially challenging conditions trackside.
Epson says, “Trackside Epson supports the team with multiple WorkForce Pro RIPS printers which are 95 per cent more energy efficient than laser printers, and free up valuable power for other vital equipment from a sometimes limited power supply.”
Ian Cameron, general manager, Brand and Communications, Epson says, “We are delighted to be celebrating our third consecutive World Championship with the team. It is testimony to both Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport’s and Epson’s constant desire to continually achieve ground-breaking innovation and performance on and off the track.”
During the season, this unrivalled performance on track has seen Mercedes-AMG driver Lewis Hamilton take the record for the most number of pole positions, beating Michael Schumacher’s previous record of 68.
Epson says, “This constant pursuit for the highest level of performance represents a shared value with Epson, which is committed to creating value that exceeds its customers’ expectations through continual innovation.”
