Epson welcomes visitors to its stand at drupa this year (Hall 5, stand D20).

It’s all about personalisation and on-demand production as Epson welcomes visitors to its stand at drupa this year (Hall 5, stand D20).

It’s been almost five years since the last drupa, Europe’s major showpiece for the commercial print industry, and everyone is looking forward to a wonderful show this year in Dusseldorf, from May 28 to June 7.

Epson is genuinely excited to be demonstrating the many significant advances it has made to its digital inkjet technologies and to show how it is continuing to deliver highly innovative, compact and efficient printing solutions. We will be demonstrating our advanced capabilities across a broad range of wide format printing, from large industrial equipment (such our SurePress labelling and Monna Lisa direct-to-fabric machines) to our many smaller, compact printers designed for quality colour printing on a wide variety of different materials and surfaces.

A key theme for Epson at drupa this year is meeting the demand for localised production as the industry moves away from one-sized mass production toward more personalised products made on-demand.  People are looking for beautifully designed 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 many different high quality, colourful and uniquely designed printed items at the point of demand.

The giftware market is undergoing significant transformation as micro-producers across Europe move away from less flexible and inefficient analogue production techniques towards newer digital technologies. This shift is necessary if producers are to meet the growing call for personalisation and individually tailored products. Epson can successfully deliver in this market with its comprehensive and highly flexible range of wide format printers. We are enabling producers to create high quality, beautiful personalised items using advanced applications with the newest dye sublimation, direct-to-garment (DTG) and Ultra-Violet (UV) signage printers.

On the Epson stand at drupa we’ll be showing off a whole storefront of stunning products that illustrate how our printing technology encourages creativity and means individuals can realise their visions - from colourful custom-designed t-shirts, photos, phone cases, magnets, coasters, to golf balls, surf boards, deck chairs, towels, car wrappings and wallpapers.

There are many new and exciting products on display this year and visitors to Epson’s stand (D20, Hall 5) can see:

  • Our SureColor SC-P20500, displayed for the first time, for producers of high-quality fine art photography, posters and indoor signage.
  • The new ColorWorks C8000 on-demand digital colour label printer designed for high quality commercial label production.
  • Our new direct-to-fabric Monna Lisa 13000, an affordable single-step printer with smaller footprint that delivers in-line printing using sustainable pigment inks.
  • SureColor F10000 with new optional jumbo roll, Epson’s most productive dye-sublimation printer to date.
  • New additions to Epson’s personalisation and micro-production printer range including the new hybrid DTG/DTFilm SureColor F1000, the A4 UV flatbed SureColor V1000, the A3 UV flatbed SureColor V2000 and the micro-production DTG/DTFilm SureColor F2200.  
  • Our complete range of mini-lab (D1000, D500) and smaller dye sublimation printers (SureColor F500 and F100) designed for micro-producers and creative designers working on all kinds of materials and substrates.
  • Epson’s latest industrial robust printhead, the D3000, designed for aqueous and UV ink applications, showing the flexibility of Epson’s high precision printhead technology. 

Come and visit us at drupa this year – stand D20, Hall 5.
