Epson printers - Testing process|
During production of its UltraChrome K3 printer range, Epson incorporates a sophisticated testing process to ensure uniformity of output between printers. This is important to Inter IKEA Systems because it provides accurate, stable and highly consistent proofs that can be verified to match their quality control targets at any production stage and in any location.
