The History of Epson

Seiko Epson Corporation (Epson) was founded in 1942 by Hisao Yamazaki, a local clock shop owner, in Japan and started as a producer of watch parts.

When the Seiko Group was assigned the task to be the official time keeper for the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games, Epson was assigned to develop a printing timer. To date, they have become famous for pioneering the piezoelectric Inkjet Technology. Printers using this technology do not heat the ink when printing like other inkjet printers do.

Today, Epson is one of the largest suppliers within the printer market, offering inkjet printers, laser printers, scanners and dot matrix printers for every use from the home to commercial printing.

Interested in Epson Compatible Cartridges?

Buying an original Epson cartridge is not cheap, with sets of cartridges costing upwards to 100.00. Fortunately, the market has been opening up in the last few years and there are now choices out there for those that want to buy an Epson compatible cartridge instead. These cartridges are manufactured to be 100% compatible with the Epson printer and to meet the standard set by Epson for their cartridges.

Epson have always produced printers with a permanent printhead. This has historically made the Epson ink cartridges cheaper than many other printer makers, because of the simplicity of the ink tank. The reason for this is that the Epson cartridge only contained the printer ink and no or few electronics.

Epson have in the last years introduced new printers to the market that use cartridges that contain a chip. The goal with this chip was to make it impossible for other ink manufacturers to create an Epson compatible cartridge. Luckily for Epson printer owners, other ink manufacturers such as Jet Tec have been able to create fully compatible cartridges that also include an Epson compatible chip.
