LONG BEACH, Calif., Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson America today announced its plans for Labelexpo Americas, the continent's largest event for the label, product decoration, web printing, and converting industry, being held from Sept. 9-11 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill. Epson will be showcasing its full range of prime, sub-prime and GHS label solutions, as well as a laser finishing unit, in its booth, #5813, as well as participating in the Inkjet Trail, which challenges five of the leading inkjet press manufacturers to produce identical label designs. Epson will also be showcasing upgrades to the SurePress® L-4033A/AW digital label press, including a clear sensor that will allow for printing on a clear substrate with a clear liner, as well as improved Variable Data Printing processing for maximum label customization.
"Labelexpo provides the ideal venue to showcase the new SurePress® L-6034VW and L-6034V single-pass industrial press with Epson's proprietary PrecisionCore™ printhead technology for the first time in the U.S." said Michael Pruitt, product manager, SurePress, Epson America, Inc. "In addition, we are very excited to be participating in the Inkjet Trail, providing an opportunity to show attendees how the SurePress presses stack up against competing solutions when color accuracy and quality are on the line."
In its booth, Epson will be showcasing the Epson SurePress L-6034VW and L-6034V – Epson's first single-pass industrial presses using PrecisionCore technology in a linehead configuration, and the first to offer Epson's new LED-cured UV ink with in-line digital varnish technology. The SurePress L-6034V/VW are designed for label converters investing in a digital label press for the first time or looking to expand their production facilities with a reliable, easy-to-use press that will produce high quality, durable labels all day, every day with minimal downtime.
Epson will also be showing the SurePress L-4033A/AW easy-to-operate inkjet digital label presses that make high-quality, short-run label printing easier and more efficient. Delivering exceptional print quality and accurate color reproduction, as well as innovative printing features, the L-4033A/AW are cost-effective and reliable solutions that allow printers to expand their service offerings and improve profitability.
As part of the Labelexpo Inkjet Trail, each of the five inkjet manufacturers will receive the same origination for a food, personal care and industrial label and provide labels using the same paper, film and foil substrates provided by Avery Dennison, FLEXcon and UPM Raflatac. Epson will be printing on the SurePress L-4033AW and show attendees will be able to collect samples and compare the results for themselves.
In addition, Epson will be represented in several conference program panels and discussions, including the following:
- Panel Discussion: Investing in Digital – On Sept. 9 from 3-4 p.m., SurePress customer Steve Middleton from Middleton Printing will participate in a panel discussion focused on making the right decisions based on a business model, and making digital more affordable by reducing costs while delivering high value print and product quality

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
