KM1024i

Konica Minolta KM1024i printhead

KM1024i Series Printheads are:
  • High speed, high productivity printheads with ‘independent’ firing technology – not limited by the low speeds of older ‘shared wall’ technology.

  • Proven in a wide range of single-pass systems, providing print up to 80 meters per minute from a single row of heads.

  • Simple to integrate, tough and reliable with good fluid compatibility
 
  • Available in 6, 14 and 30pl drop sizes. Variants are available for solvent oil, UV and water-based inks. These heads may be operated in a wide range of different orientations and suitable for use with recirculating ink systems.

  • Printheads can be used in binary or greyscale (3bit) models.
