Epson wins best of the best awards in the product design category

Epson SC-F2200

Epson’s DS-C480W and DS-C420W series of document scanners became one of a small percentage of entrants to win a best of the best award, the highest distinction in the Red Dot: Product Design 2024 awards. This marks the fifth time that Epson has won best of the best. Epson also received Red Dot awards for a business inkjet printer, garment printer, and an auto color chart reading portable table in the product design category.

Document Scanners: DS-C480W and DS-C420W Series

Epson Document Scanners – DS C480W and DS C420W Series

These compact desktop scanners help save space. The U-turn paper feeding vertical layout, frontal operation and flattened back achieve space saving, which helps contribute to an environment where the user can work comfortably and smoothly.

Business Inkjet Printers: WorkForce Enterprise LM-C4000, 5000 and 6000

Epson LM-C6000 5000 4000

These high-speed A3 inkjet printers are intended for medium-sized to large offices. These inkjets don’t use heat to fire ink*, and therefore consume less power than laser equivalents. Together with a simple structure that saves resources, these printers are designed to minimize environmental impact. The exterior is white, clean, rounded and unimposing.

* This describes the characteristics of Epson’s Micro Piezo technology, and not the performance of specific inkjet printers.

Garment Printers: SureColor SC-F2200 Series

These garment printers can directly print onto T-shirts and other clothes. The compact design of these printers makes them easy to install, expand and transport. Epson has also changed the design of the operating unit to solve the issue of T-shirts being difficult to attach to the previous model. Productivity has also been improved with the new model being made easier to operate. Epson hopes that the product helps contribute to the digitalization of the textile printing industry.

Auto Color Chart Reading Portable Table

This automatic color measurement portable table makes it easy to match colors on Epson large-format printers. It works in conjunction with Epson’s color measurement device and color management software to automatically measure colors so that anyone can match colors accurately and quickly. It can also measure soft materials such as cloth and thick materials. Conventional automatic color measurement tables are large and difficult to carry. Epson solves this problem by using drive technology cultivated in printers to create a small, lightweight, high-precision body. It comes with a carry bag that is easy to carry and store, so you can take it to a site, open the bag, and start measuring colors immediately.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
