Fujifilm Dimatix SG-1024 single-pass printhead
Fujifilm Dimatix (www.dimatix.com) recently introduced the SG-1024 single-pass printhead. The company describes it as a high-nozzle-density, drop-on-demand, inkjet printhead designed specifically for demanding industrial single-pass printing and decorative applications. Dimatix also says the printhead features high-performance, repairable construction that combines superior jetting performance in a compact, self-contained design. Each printhead has 1024 independent jets arranged in eight rows, each with 128 channels. The printhead supports nominal 20- to 30-pl drop size (fluid-dependent) and is compatible with aqueous, oil-based ceramic inks and associated maintenance fluids. According to Dimatix, SG-1024 incorporates RediJet technology, which involves a unique nozzle-plate design, special conformal and non-wetting surface coatings, enhanced on-head electronics, ink recirculation, and waveforms tailored to specific fluids.
