Kyocera Develops Simutaneous Two-Colour Printhead

August 06, 2012
By

Kyocera of Japan announced it has developed what it describes as the world's fastest 300-dpi inkjet printhead. The new head also features simultaneous two-colour printing.

Running at a speed of 152 metres per minute, the heads also have a 112 millimeter width and print both UV-curable and water-based inks.

According to Kyocera, the distinctive two-colour printing capability of this new printhead allows the company to effectively halve the number of printheads required in a printer, while also reducing the number of parts required for wiring, contributing to equipment downsizing. Furthermore, the 300-dpi model's nozzle configuration prevents the mixing of inks at the point of contact with the printed material — a potential problem when printing two colours simultaneously from the same printhead — ensuring that the new two-colour printhead delivers quality printed images.

This technology will be making its way into the commercial printing market, where Kyocera also distributes 600-dpi and 1200-dpi inkjet heads.
