Epson America has launched a new, app-enabled label printer that connects via Bluetooth for use with smartphones and tablets, and USB for use with Windows and Mac computers. The printer, called the Epson LabelWorks™ LW-600P, offers the capability to create an endless variety of labels for any personal, home, or office use.

 

The free app, iLabel, takes full advantage of the capabilities of your smartphone and tablet devices by offering features such as the ability to use your own handwriting, the ability to create QR-coded or bar-coded labels, and even voice-to-text recognition.

 

The printer itself is compact, battery powered for portability, and comes with an AC adaptor for home or office use. It prints labels quickly at 15mm/s, and offers the use of tape widths from 6mm to 24mm.

 

The app also includes a preview function that uses your smartphone or tablet’s camera to show you what your labels will look like before you print. This is a great feature since you can create your labels from start to finish, right on your tablet or smartphone, and it’s always best to preview your work before you print.

 

You can see the new label printer in action if you are in the Las Vegas area from January 7th – 10th. There will be demonstrations at the Epson SmartWare Pavilion, in meeting room S214 of the Las Vegas Convention Centre.

Epson President Minoru Usui is making bold statements that allude to companies such as Apple and Samsung being copycats of each other. Usui claims that when you open up the gadgets created by the technological giants Apple and Samsung, the parts are essentially the same with only the design and software used as the only real differences.

 

Usui wants Epson known as the company that creates original technology. He aspires to create things that other companies cannot. This involves moving past the printers they are known for manufacturing, and into the area of wearables. According to theage.com, Minoru Usui is said to be creating products that can track changes in your body over time. Epson is busy creating a type of wearable glasses that they say is superior to Google Glass.

 

Epson registered 17,890 patents between January 2010 and December 2012. Usui says that Epson’s patent policy states that patents have to lead to an output, meaning that they don’t register as many patents as they can in hopes of earning money from lawsuits when people cross into their patent territory.

 

Epson, who currently has their hand in manufacturing many technologies such as printers, is already working with a start-up company in Silicon Valley that is using Epson’s technology to manufacture the optics for the glasses, which will allow users to take part in virtual gaming, facial recognition, and 3D visualizations.

Epson recently announced its mobile-printing support for the Kindle Fire through an integrated wireless print solution in the Kindle Fire HD and the Kindle Fire HDX tablets. Your new Kindle Fire just got a lot more useful.

 

Many of Epson’s connect-enabled printers now offer the mobile-printing capabilities for the new line of Kindle Fire tablets with a free software download through Amazon. The free download, Amazon Fire OS 3.1, takes your Kindle Fire from a leisure and entertainment device to one capable of offering the necessities in a work or home office environment.

 

The new Kindle Fire tablets are the first Amazon devices to offer built-in wireless printing. You can now produce quality prints at home, directly from your Kindle Fire with little effort. The connect-enabled Epson printers are easy to set up and only take a few seconds.

 

This potentially makes your choice of suitable tablets for purchase larger and possibly more difficult to decide which is best for you. For work-related duties, the Kindle Fire offers the ability to check your email, view documents created using the MS Office suite, keyboard and mouse support via Bluetooth, and accessing your company’s network remotely, among other benefits.

 

Which tablet will you choose, and why?

Epson is releasing their first direct-to-garment printer, the SureColor SC-F2000. Available in November, printing your own t-shirts or other items up to 25mm thick is a fun and exciting way to use printing technology at home or business.

 

The SureColor SC-F2000 boasts high quality prints with low maintenance and running costs. The ink is soft and crack resistant, making it an ideal choice for any home or business offering t-shirt design and print services.

 

For businesses looking to figure out pricing, or a return on investment, Epson’s new garment printer also offers a calculation of the amount of ink used for each print job; simple math will tell you the cost of the ink used.

 

The garment printer is bundled with Epson’s design software so users can get creative with their printed images and designs. It prints at a resolution of 1440×1440 dpi, offering smooth edges and contours.

 

The ink used is vibrant and eco-friendly, as it doesn’t contain any harmful substrates.

 

This unit is also quite speedy, and claims not to take more than 2 minutes to print a t-shirt design, no matter what color of fabric you are printing. This speed is ideal for small to medium sized commercial business use; your turnaround time would be very quick.

 

If you decide to use this printer at home, you may have to keep it out of the reach of children, who may decide to print on all of their clothing while you are sleeping!
