Konica Minolta have released 2 brand new printheads that further enhance its product range.
The KM1024aLHG-RC is a large drop dual-path nozzle-level recirculation printhead. The dual-path recirculation provides an exceptional degree of scavenging of each nozzle, removing air or ink sediment and ensuring it can run reliably with the most difficult inks and fluids. A native 25pl drop volume combined with new analog-waveform electronics greatly enhances the printhead’s laydown rate or productivity up to 67g/m2 at 24m/min. This new printhead is designed for demanding applications including ceramics, metallic inks, large-particle functional fluids, flood-coat varnishes, primers and low-stability white inks. The printhead incorporates a large-area replaceable ink filter. A very compact print head “footprint” (only 18.7mm thick) means print-bar dimensions can be 50% or less compared to competitors printheads.
The KM1024aSHE is a new small drop (6pl) printhead. The use of analog electronics results in approximately a 2x improvement in print productivity over earlier printhead models. With very compact dimensions, this printhead is an ideal way of radically increasing the throughput and print quality of UV wide-format or flat-bed printers.
As with all of Konica Minolta’s printheads, reliability and durability are a cornerstone of the design philosophy. Combined with the ability to handle a very wide range of inks, Konica Minolta ensures that their printheads are easy to integrate and trouble free in use.
