Epson’s proprietary MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) technology integrates all the functional printing elements of the printer on one remarkably thin chip, replacing complex parts with an all-in-one, simple chip design.
Every chip includes the piezoelectric print actuator for control and performance, microtubes for fast ink delivery, and up to 800 nozzles for incredible accuracy. The result is a simple printing process capable of self-detecting errors, helping prevent problems and requiring fewer parts to service.
With over 40 years of expertise, Epson has perfected the chip manufacturing process. The use of precise automation and quality control enables permanent, high-quality printheads, high yields, and consistent quality in every chip.
