Targeting speed and efficiency
Through EPSON Variable-Sized Droplet
Technology, this engineering masterpiece
can create several different sizes of ink
droplet, which enables better results,
increased efficiency and higher speeds. It
works by targeting the larger dots at areas

ones – including the virtually invisible
EPSON 4 picolitre Ultra Micro Dot™ – for
areas where fine detail is required.

print, and your printer will take care of it.
