Epson to Expand Printhead Production in Akita

EpsonAccording to Epson, Akita Epson Corporation will invest a total of approximately 3.5 billion yen in the construction of a new factory on the Akita Epson lot to increase the production capacity of printheads for inkjet printers.

It is said that construction work on the new factory will begin in November 2022 and is scheduled for completion in December 2023. “This investment will approximately triple Akita Epson’s current printhead production capacity,” said the spokesperson of Epson.

The new factory will be used to manufacture and assemble inkjet printheads, the core devices used in inkjet printers. The investment plan will ensure that Epson has enough production space to meet the predicted future growth in demand. It will also enable Epson to strengthen its product lineup and expand printhead sales to third parties, with a view to increasing the supply of inkjet printers equipped with cutting-edge PrecisionCore MicroTFP printheads.

The plan is to construct the new factory adjacent to the existing factory. By consolidating PrecisionCore MicroTFP printhead production at Akita Epson, the company aims to maximize efficiency. In addition, production equipment and processes will be arranged to further increase human productivity and space productivity.
