Industrial Inkjet Printhead best-suited for Versatile Applications

Feature

Shear mode, Piezo On-Demand Printhead

Piezo on-demand inkjet ejects ink drops utilizing deformation of small ink chambers composed of piezoelectric material, by applying electric field in accordance with signals. The principle of shear mode piezo actuation with shared wall structure allows lower power consumption as well as a high-density nozzle array.

512 Nozzle with 360 dpi Spacing

High resolution, 360 nozzle per inch spacing has enabled arranging 512 Nozzle on a comactly designed print head. The KM512 series consists of type L, M and S, corresponding to unit drop volume capabilities of 42pl, 14pl and 4pl respectively. The type M and S can be driven in 4 level grey-scale mode for reproducing high quality images with smoother tones.
