Epson to Construct New Inkjet Printhead Factory

As part of its strategic plan to boost its Inkjet printing solutions business, Seiko Epson Corporation has launched the construction of a new factory at its Hirooka Office in Shiojiri, Japan.

According to, the new factory will produce PrecisionCore printheads, the core devices in Epson’s inkjet printers. In addition, the factory will handle the front-end manufacturing process for manufactured high-capacity ink tank printers, with commercial and industrial printers as well.

As reported, Epson will conduct R&D and drive advances in production engineering and other areas at the facility. It is believed that it will triple Epson’s current printhead production capacity in the future.

The new factory is scheduled to start operations in the first half of the 2018 fiscal year.
