Products will include large industrial label presses, wide format direct-to-fabric, dye-sublimation and signage machines. Epson will also present its smaller, compact devices designed for high-quality colour printing on various materials and substrates. 

In addition, 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’.  

Mr Ogawa will say how Epson has ‘reinvented itself’ by moving away from old analogue towards a more sustainable digital inkjet future: “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.”

Mr Ogawa continues: “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.”

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, adds: “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 the stand, we’ll be showing how our newest digital printing technologies can help businesses produce high quality, colourful and uniquely 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 and allows individuals the creative freedom to realise their dreams working with many colours on numerous materials and surfaces – from vivid, colourful custom-designed t-shirts, photos, phone cases and coasters, to golf balls, surfboards, deck chairs, towels, car wrappings and beautifully designed wallpapers and home furnishings.
