Printing solutions provider Epson exhibited signage, photo printers, and a textile printer at MediaExpo New Delhi held from 14 – 16 September 2023 at Greater Noida’s India Expo Center. The company exhibited the SureColor SC-60670L large format printer, SureColor SC-T3730E CAD printer, and a 24-inch photo printer (SureColor SC-P7530).
“India is a big market for the textiles. Epson has a wide range of textile printers that can print on all kinds of substrates. The new product we have exhibited here is the resin printer, which is also a signage printer (SureColor R5030L roll-to-roll resin printer). But in the case of the signage resin printer, you don’t need to laminate it because it is scratch-proof,” said Akhtar Imam, zonal head at Epson India.
Imam said the signage industry in India – both digital and conventional – will continue to grow.
Epson India is a part of the Seiko Epson Corporation in Japan. The India office takes care of Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka while the Middle East market is being governed by the Epson headquarters in the European countries. The metropolitan cities (Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad) have the most number of installations, he said, adding the Epson headquarters in India are located in Bengaluru with regional offices in other major cities.
Epson, HP and Mimaki are strong in the signage industry, which also has Chinese manufacturers selling machines at cheaper prices, Imam concluded.
