Epson will demonstrate the full capabilities of its commercial and industrial digital inkjet range at drupa 2024.

Book an appointment for a tour of Epson’s stand at drupa 2024.

The company’s range covers large industrial label presses, wide format direct-to-fabric, dye-sublimation and signage machines, smaller, compact devices, all designed for high quality colour printing on a wide variety of materials and substates.

Epson Global President, Yasanori Ogawa, will attend drupa and give a keynote speech on the first day entitled ‘Up Close and Personal – Innovation in Digital Printing’. He will describe how Epson has reinvented itself, moving away from analogue towards a more sustainable digital inkjet future.

He says, “I will discuss the potential for digital in commercial and industrial printing, how this is more sustainable, less wasteful and meets a growing demand for personalised, more valued products.

“The pursuit of ever greater efficiency, compactness, and precision that Epson has embraced for many years goes well beyond just technology. ‘Efficient, compact, and precise’ (sho sho sei) encompasses an enduring philosophy of eliminating waste, reducing dimensions, and increasing precision. I believe that this approach will enable us to create even greater social value.”

Localised printing

A major focus for Epson at drupa this year is how to meet the growing demand for localised on-demand production. As the industry moves away from analogue-based one-sized-all printing towards more personalised, bespoke products, the demand for high quality, compact and flexible printers for micro-production has never been greater. 

Duncan Ferguson, vice president of Epson Europe’s Commercial and Industrial printing division,  “People are looking for beautifully designed, personalised items that brighten their lives and Epson aims to demonstrate how it has geared its manufacturing to meet this need. On stand we’ll be showing how our newest digital printing technologies can help businesses produce high quality, colourful and distinctively designed printed products at the point of demand.”

“At drupa we’ll be showing a storefront of stunning products that illustrate how our printing technology encourages creativity. It allows individuals the creative freedom to realise their dreams working with many colours on numerous materials and surfaces. Applications include vivid, colourful custom-designed t-shirts, photos, phone cases and coasters, golf balls, surf boards, deck chairs, towels, car wrappings, and beautifully designed wallpapers and home furnishings.
