Epson increases production to meet high demand after successful drupa
Epson has reported significant orders across its range of printers from companies visiting its booth at drupa. “We have had a very successful show,” says Duncan Ferguson, Executive Director, Professional Printing & Robotics, Epson Europe. “This was Epson’s biggest ever showcase for our most complete range of inkjet printers for prepress, signage, photographic, textile and label applications. The stand was extremely busy with huge interest from visitors from around the globe and we are delighted with the high number of significant orders generated.”
Interest in the new SureColor SC-S signage range of printers was so high that Epson has increased production in order to keep up with the surge in demand. The show launch of Epson’s new 44inch SureColor SC-P10000 wide-format printer was a resounding success with sales of 10 machines, including one to Picto in France which will be installed alongside their three 64inch SC-P20000s already onsite.
Exhibited at drupa, the SurePress L-6034VW digital label press attracted significant attention with orders from around Europe - the show press is being delivered to Print-ID in Germany and the first in the UK was sold to Superfast Labels. The SurePress L-4033AW press proved popular too with a number of global sales made, including the US and Dubai.
Within the print shop zone, Epson showed how its desktop solutions could enable companies to offer a collaborative design-and-print service to produce a wide variety of personalised products on a vast range of substrates. The new ColorWorks C7500 label printer alongside the SC-F2000 direct-to-textile printer in particular, drew in the crowds by demonstrating the potential to build new business streams, without compromising on quality and at an affordable price.
