Seiko II announces it is transferring printer division to OKI Data

Posted June 15, 2015

Transferring your WIDE-format printer division to a nice, well-known, and capable SMALL-format company, and one that is not inkjet, is a challenge.

The other unanswered question (and also a previously unasked question) is what happens with Seiko printhead technology?

We discuss all this in a special FLAAR Report, TRENDs level, about solvent printers at FESPA 2015 in Cologne, since the memo from Seiko II came out a few days after this expo.

You can order a copy by asking FrontDesk "at" FLAAR.org to invoice you for this report.

100% of all web sites merely repeat the same identical PR release by SII. Why does no one in the industry ask the pertinent questions? These we ask in our report on solvent printer brands. Plus we list crucial aspects of all this, to judge what is really going on, and what will happen to the nice ColorPainter series (out in the real world, where PR releases tend to vary from unrealistic to wishful thinking).

Seiko II and OKI Data are both respected companies. Thus this situation is rather unexpected.
