Seiko Epson Corporation, a pioneer of digital textile printing and a leader in connecting people, things and information with efficient and precision technologies, has announced the opening of two new hub sites, the innovation research lab and the printing research centre, dedicated to the development of new industrial digital textile products in Italy.

The innovation research lab will focus on ink technology R&D and has been created by Epson together with For.Tex, provider for dyes, thickeners, and specialty for printing. The printing research centre, in collaboration with F.lli Robustelli, a major player in production engineering for textile printers, will aid future development of Epson inkjet core technology dedicated to textile printing.

The two new sites join Epson’s established textile solution centre in Como, Italy. With the opening of these facilities, Epson, For.Tex and F.lli Robustelli have realised their vision to create a worldwide hub for the digital textile printing industry based in Italy.

With the aim of researching and developing new inks for industrial digital printing on a wide array of materials, the innovation research lab is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies and is staffed with a team of highly-skilled technologists and researchers (chemical engineers, chemical analysts, lab technicians, etc.). The lab is committed to research that will increase industrial ink performance and sustainability on behalf of Epson.

The printing research centre, located in F.lli Robustelli’s head office, will aid product development of inkjet core devices, ensuring the continued development of the highest quality textile printers for Epson.

Sunao Murata, chief operating officer, of Epson’s professional printing operations division said, “We are delighted to announce the establishment of the innovation research lab and the printing research centre in Como. These state-of-the-art R&D facilities symbolise Epson’s strong commitment to accelerating the development of digital textile inkjet printing both in the Como region and the rest of the world.” (GK)
