Introduced in 2003, PrecisionCore is a collection of thin-film piezo print head technology by Epson which combines inkjet technology and advanced micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS). Each of its printhead has individually controlled nozzles which can release up to 50,000 accurate ink droplets per second.
Epson produces the PrecisionCore entirely in Japan because the company wishes to identify what they can improve on for the succeeding printheads. Epson also wishes to increase the competitive advantage of its production sites and to stabilize its production technology by using automated production lines that feature their industrial robots.
