- TOKYO, Japan, June 19, 2013 -
Seiko Epson Corporation (TSE: 6724, "Epson") has invested approximately 16 billion yen*1 in two new production lines in Japan. The lines have been constructed to manufacture next-generation print heads - the core component in ink jet printers - for use in business and industrial printing systems to come to market in the latter part of the 2013 fiscal year.http://global.epson.com/newsroom/2013/news_20130619.html
Another quote from the press release: ".. the new head pursues more compact design, even greater precision and improved cost performance. "
I personally am very much interested in the 3880 replacement with the hope the new design finally allows all blacks to be available at all times so no more time-ink consuming switching.
