KM1024i

The KM1024i series are the high speed, high productivity printheads in the Konica Minolta range. “I” is for “independent” firing – these heads are no longer limited by the low speeds of the older “shared wall” technology.

Iseries heads are used in a wide range of single-pass systems, providing print up to 80metres per minute from a single row of heads. Like the earlier heads they are simple to use, tough and reliable with good fluid compatibility.

They are available in 6, 14 and 30pl drop sizes.. Versions are available for solvent oil, UV and water-based inks. These heads may be operated in a wide range of different orientations. They are suitable for use with recirculating ink systems. Heads can be used in binary or greyscale (3bit) modes.

For the full model range, see datasheet.
