At the Heart of Epson's Technology
Efficient, compact and precision technologies
A commitment to relentlessly pursuing advances in energy efficiency, miniaturization, and precision and accuracy is embedded in Epson's DNA. And today, our efficient, compact, and precision technologies are the source of our strength.
These technologies originated from products such as the Seiko Quartz Astron 35SQ wristwatch. Announced in 1969, the Astron was the world's first quartz watch and, with a daily rate of ±0.2 seconds, offered unprecedented accuracy. The technology for reducing the size and power consumption of the watch astonished manufacturers around the world. Epson has continued to develop these efficient, compact, and precision technologies over the decades, and today they provide the foundation for Epson's core devices, printers, projectors, wearable products, robots, and more.
