MicroPiezo® Technology

MicroPiezo technology is the award-winning piezoelectric technology used in the printheads of every Epson inkjet printer. The piezo elements inside the printhead ensure precise control over the ink, which helps Epson printers achieve droplets as small as 1.5 picoliters (much finer than a human hair). These tiny droplets produce the unprecedented image quality, reliability and faster print speeds that Epson inkjet printers are known.

1Inkjet cartridge yields vary considerably for reasons including item printed, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently. A variable amount of ink remains in the cartridge after the "replace cartridge" signal. Ink from the first cartridge is used for priming the printer. Ink is used for both printing and print head maintenance.
