The print heads by Fujifilm Dimatix, which we already saw in action in Heidelberg Primefire 106+L, impressed the Real Innovation Seekers with improved print results in close to offset quality and their compatibility with many inkjet inks.
The architecture of the silicone inkjet print heads is designed for large arrays and allows a “print head on a chip” design, which in turn maximises the nozzle density to 2048 per module and minimises the droplet size. Mems print heads can be operated with 100 kHz, which ensures extremely high print speeds. According to Fujifilm, the print head is compatible with most inkjet ink technologies (including water-based, UV, hybrid, oil-based and associated maintenance fluids). The new and improved Fujifilm Samba print heads are used in the Heidelberg Primefire 106+L and other machines.
About Real Innovation Seekers
Real Innovation Seekers (RIS) is the result of the close cooperation between Stuttgart Media University (HdM) and zipcon consulting GmbH, and will be accompanying drupa. During the fair, small teams of students from the degree course Digital Publishing will be the “Real Innovation Seekers” looking for the latest trends, business drivers and true innovations propelling the printing sector into the future. They document their findings in articles, short films or interviews, which will all feature these hot new trends right here in my blog.
