Epson’s Red Dot 2023 Wins

Best of the Best Award in the Product Design category.


23 June 2023

Epson’s series of SureLab D500 (D560 in A/NZ) compact photo production printers has become one of a small percentage of entrants to win a Best of the Best award, the highest distinction in the Red Dot: Product Design 2023 awards. This marks the fourth time that Epson has won Best of the Best. Epson also received Red Dot awards for five inkjet printer models, one industrial robot and one projector model.

SureLab-D500 (D560 in A/NZ)

The design of the SureLab D500 (D560 in A/NZ) series of compact, lightweight photo production printers provides installation flexibility in shops where space is limited. Up to three units can be stacked on top of one another. Meanwhile, front access operation means you can install them even on narrow shelves and counters. Environmental impacts are minimised by employing a housing that contains recycled resin and ink bottles instead of ink cartridges, resulting in less packaging and other waste.


The clean, stylish appearance meets customers’ needs for printers that can be comfortably worn on a belt or shoulder and that fit seamlessly into any environment. In addition, the printers provide robust impact resistance and water protection to IP54 standards.

TM-L100 (Compact label printer)

This compact label printer is ideal for order management and food item labelling in restaurants and stores. The smooth, sleek design makes it easy to clean and perfect for use anywhere food is handled. Demand for a wider variety of media has increased along with the spread of food delivery services. This printer supports liner-free labels with high adhesive strength, improving utility while reducing the environmental footprint.

SureColor T7700 Series (T7760 in A/NZ) & SureColor P8500 Series (T8560 in A/NZ)

These large-format printers are designed for CAD, photo and POP applications. With a depth of 500mm, these units can be installed even in narrow spaces in the backyard of stores. Everything from loading roll paper to printing operations can be done from the front panel, and the rear and side panels are flat to allow tight installation against three walls. The top surface is also flat so that it can be used as a workbench or PC desk, using space with maximum efficiency.

TM-m30III (Receipt printer)

This POS receipt printer can be operated from a smartphone or tablet device. The stylish cube-shaped design fits any environment, from elegant boutiques to convenience stores. This unit conveniently supports output from both the front and the top. The smooth exterior has fewer joints, steps, and uneven surfaces. This not only gives a clean impression but is also easier to clean. The case is antibacterial, making the product safe to use even at self-checkout registers that are used by many people.

LQ-690II Series & LQ-780 Series (Serial impact dot matrix [SIDM] printers)

The clean design of these SIDM printers maximises office desk space efficiency. The slim profile enables installation on even narrow counters. When not in use, the sheet guide can be folded up to make even more efficient use of desk space. These printers are compact, yet the flat top surface was enlarged to provide space to place objects.

GX8 (Industrial robot – sold via Epson reseller in A/NZ)

Industrial robots are required to operate accurately in a limited space and in various work environments, and the GX8 has been developed to meet such strict requirements. GYROPLUS Technology, which enhances motion control performance, achieves both high speed operation and high accuracy while maintaining a smart body size. In addition, we adopted a design that can provide a wide variety of variations that correspond to various work environments. This allows users to improve productivity and save space by realising the optimal size and layout.

CO-FH02 (Smart full-HD projector)

This multipurpose projector is equipped with functions for playback of video-on-demand and other online content. Despite its compact size, it delivers 3,000 lumens of brightness and has switchable viewing modes, allowing it to be used comfortably in a bright conference room or in a living room. The simple, clean silhouette and casual details allow it to fit effortlessly in any environment.
