Hear from Epson's team of experts, who spent years bringing this groundbreaking print head to the forefront of technology, and see what went into one of the largest strategic investments in Epson’s history.

A Printing Paradigm Shift

With its incredible ability to scale while delivering unbeatable image quality, speed and precision, PrecisionCore technology represents a fundamental change in the way we approach printing solutions.

MicroTFP Print Chip

At the heart of PrecisionCore is the PrecisionCore MicroTFP print chip. This print chip is modular and can be arrayed in various print head configurations.

Outstanding speed and output quality

Based on the thin film piezo (TFP) technology that Epson has been using in commercial large-format printers, the MicroTFP PrecisionCore print chip offers vastly improved basic performance compared to conventional piezo print heads. This includes faster speed and more accurate dot placement. Thin film piezo actuators, which act as pumps that fire droplets of ink, are just 1 micron thick and can precisely control the droplet shape and volume at a rate up to 50,000 times a second per nozzle. In addition, by increasing the length of the nozzle plate, and thus the length of the nozzle line, from 1 inch to 1.33 inches, PrecisionCore print heads are able to deliver professional output quality at incredibly high speeds with unbeatable image quality.

Expanding potential

Modular PrecisionCore chips can be combined in different ways to build a variety of print heads, from industrial press line heads to desktop serial print heads. As it continues to evolve, PrecisionCore promises to be an enduring inkjet technology platform and its potential is only just beginning to be tapped.
