ESPON has developed three new printheads, including the D3000-A1R, the series’ first product to support ink circulation at the nozzle level. The line-up of inkjet heads now comprises five series. The three new products will help accelerate the transition to low-waste, low environmental impact digital printing of things such as textiles, packages, and decorations. They will also facilitate distributed printing, allowing items to be produced locally, and on-demand printing, meaning that printers only produce what they need, when they need it.
The three new printheads will be released in the second half of the 2021 fiscal year (ending March 2022). D3000-A1R: With 1200-dpi resolution and high-frequency driving, these printheads enable digital printers to deliver image quality and print speeds comparable to those of existing analogue printers. S3200-A3: The S3200-A3 uses the same 24 kHz frequency as the existing S3200-A1 yet produces droplets that are 1.4 times larger. I3200(8)-A1HD: With up to 1200 nozzles per inch (when using two colours), the I3200(8)-A1HD has a higher nozzle resolution than the existing I3200(4)-A1, enabling it to deliver high-definition images in a compact size without sacrificing the characteristic usability of the series.
