Talking about SGI Dubai, Shihab Zubair, Regional Sales Manager - Professional Solutions, Epson Europe, stated, 'We are pleased to be associated with SGI Dubai - one of the prominent shows in the region. Our PrecisionCore TFP printheads demonstrated at SGI is one of our major break-through innovations and is the result of one of the largest investments in research and development in Epson's history, merging the company's expertise in MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) fabrication with advances in material science. We have experienced strong demand for signage printing in this region with an 18% growth in 2016. With the introduction of new products and upgraded technology, we look forward to capturing larger share of the regional signage sector.
Epson had recently launched the SureColor P10000 and P20000, designed for high-production photographic, fine art and indoor display graphics printing. The company is also relaunching its signage and fabric range printers with the latest generation PrecisionCore TFP printheads. PrecisionCore is a scalable technology suited for products ranging from industrial systems such as largescale label presses to desktop printers. Its modularity allows PrecisionCore print chips to be arrayed in both moving serial print head and fixed line head configurations. A new printhead structure means fewer vibrations, and more accurate ink droplets and dot placement.
