Epson Inkjet Inspires Display Creativity at Fespa Digital 2010

Epson Gs

'Inspired creativity' is Epson's theme at FESPA Munich (22-26 June 2010) where it will show the ability of its Micro Piezo digital inkjet technology to produce innovative display graphics for the signage, decorative art and interior design markets on a variety of flexible paper, plastic and textile materials.

The award-winning Epson Stylus Pro 9700 and 7700 inkjet printers will be in action demonstrating point of sale applications such as posters, backlight panels and textile banners, as well as CAD/ GIS applications, in association with Epson's strategic software partners.  The stand highlight will be the 64in Epson Stylus Pro GS6000 printer featuring UltraChrome GS ink demonstrating a number of different indoor and outdoor applications, including interior decoration.

Epson's focus on environmentally responsible technologies is a strong feature at FESPA. BioMedia, a new biodegradable and recyclable print media, will be demonstrated on the GS6000 producing display graphics which biodegrade in under 5 years. BioMedia is a complete range of printing substrates and is quickly becoming the substrate of choice for organisations adopting environmentally responsible display print, including Virgin Atlantic, BAA and World Duty Free.

Inspired by Epson's passion for extreme colour gamut and photographic print quality, the GS6000 uses the high-performance Ultrachrome®GS ink technology. This new ink allows commercial print makers to integrate safer signage printing technology without sacrificing output quality. Epson UltraChrome GS introduces eight individual colours - including Orange and Green - in efficient 950 ml cartridges and produces an exceptionally wide colour gamut making the Stylus Pro GS6000 ideal for branded applications. It delivers virtually odorless printing without the need for special ventilation or air purification systems and the ink dries extremely fast, eliminating the need for special dryers. Furthermore, this ink does not contain harmful Nickel compounds, which minimizes the negative health impact on both the environment and employees. This inkset allows the production of high-impact, high quality durable prints, enabling printers, copy shops and sign shops to extend their business into higher quality and more demanding applications such as airport and exhibition graphics.

On the Epson booth several third-party software and media partners will demonstrate a range of creative applications and effects using a wide selection of materials including wallpaper, textile, canvas, and biodegradable substrates.

Claes Jeppsson, Senior Business Manager, LFP and LFP Solutions, Epson Europe says: "Companies are increasingly looking to push the boundaries of digital inkjet and produce ever more creative applications with high environmental credentials and Epson meets this need with a range of highly flexible and market-leading inkjet printers that can produce the best quality products for the display, decorative art and interior design markets."

Epson Europe looks forward to welcoming you to FESPA Digital 2010 at booth 360 in hall B2 at Messe Munich on 22-26 June 2010, where you will have the opportunity for an in-depth look at these new technologies and products.
