Kyocera Corporation said it will launch an inkjet printhead featuring a new highly robust design for textile printing, which will be produced at its Kagoshima Kokubu plant in Japan.

“For use as a key component in inkjet printers, the company will start mass production this month,” a press release from Kyocera stated.

The printhead has dimensions of 200×45×68.5 mm, maximum drive frequency of 30 kHz, resolution of 300 dpi, effective print width of 112 mm and is compatible with water based inks.

According to Kyocera, the industry is experiencing unprecedented demand for digital technologies, which eliminates the printing plate and allows for the immediate printing of only the required amount of ink.

“This not only contributes to increased productivity and cost reduction, but also a reduction in environmental burden, as plate-washing waste is not generated in the production process,” it said.

“At the same time, there is a growing need for inkjet printheads which can withstand severe conditions, such as fabric being caught or device errors occurring from shocks when feeding the fabric,” the company added.

“Furthermore, the scattering of ink mist or fabric dust can result in malfunctions when entering the printhead,” Kyocera informed.

In order to meet this need, Kyocera developed a new, highly robust design which enhances printheads for use under the harsh conditions of textile printing.

Additionally, the product offers the advantage of simultaneous two-colour printing with one printhead, contributing to equipment downsizing.

It also features the world's widest effective print width of 112 mm or around 4 inches, which simplifies equipment design and maintenance by further reducing the number of printheads.

Kyocera already mass-produces inkjet printheads for textile printing which offer world-class levels of high print speeds with high resolution.

“By launching a robustly designed printhead, Kyocera addresses a multitude of market demands, thus expanding the possibilities of the digital printing industry,” Kyocera observed. (AR)
