Konica Minolta IJ Technologies Inc. announces the launch of Nassenger VII, a high-speed inkjet textile printer equipped with newly developed high-performance inkjet printheads. Sales of the printer will begin in the European market in mid-April, 2009.

The new Nassenger VII, is characterized by newly developed 512-nozzle high-speed drive inkjet printheads to deliver a maximum print speed of 210m2 per hour (about 3.6 times faster than its predecessor, Nassenger V) making it one of the fastest inkjet textile printers in the world. This printing speed allows Nassenger VII to be highly productive, comfortably meeting the needs of print works for short-run production of a variety of printing in small lots.

Furthermore, equipped with a multi-gradation recording mode to control droplet size, the new printer enables the reproduction of a wide range of tones from the lightest to the darkest. Whereas it is quite difficult to produce a subtle gradation using the conventional screen textile printing, the new mode allows to meet varying design needs of the textile industry while constantly ensuring high-quality printing.

To secure high productivity, the new printer is equipped with a high-capacity ink tank that can hold 10 liters for each color. The inline degassing unit incorporated in the ink supply system ensures greater stability during long hours of operation. Capable of printing on a maximum fabric width of 1,850mm, Nassenger VII is also suitable for printing fabrics used for curtains and bed linens.

Konica Minolta will exhibit and demonstrate Nassenger VII at FESPA DIGITAL 2009, a major exhibition of screen printing and textile printing systems, to be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from May 12 to 14, 2009.

Main features
1. Newly developed high-speed, multi-nozzle inkjet printheads (KM512) are mounted for speed and precision.

The printer installs 24 newly developed 512-nozzle high-speed drive printheads, to enable a maximum print speed of 210m2 per hour, putting Nassenger VII among the fastest digital textile printers in the world. Incorporating Konica Minolta's drop-on-demand piezo printheads, developed in-house, Nassenger VII is an energy-saving, environmentally-sound system capable of printing the exact volume precisely in the designated space at a lower voltage level.
2. The multi-gradation recording (multi-drop) mode enables the reproduction of a wide range of tones from the lightest to the darkest.
The multi-gradation recording mode controls the ink droplet size and enables to reproduce a subtle gradation of tones that is difficult with the conventional screen printing method. A unique character of the inkjet printers to precisely reproduce a gradation of tones from the lightest to the darkest supports a variety of emerging design needs in the textile industry.
