Japan-based Seiko Epson Corporation has expanded its lineup of PrecisionCore printheads in response to an accelerated shift in the commercial and industrial sectors to digital printing. The three new products will help accelerate the transition to low-waste, low environmental impact digital printing of things such as textiles and packages.

The new printers will facilitate distributed printing, allowing items to be produced locally, and on-demand printing.

The new printheads will be released in the second half of the fiscal 2021 fiscal year (ending March 2022). The lineup of inkjet heads now comprises five series, thus expanding potential applications in digital printing, Epson said in a press release.

The D3000-A1R supports ink circulation at the nozzle level to prevent potential issues caused by the evaporation of moisture near the nozzles. Circulation also facilitates stable printing and increases the degree of freedom in the engineering of devices and ink. With 1200-dpi resolution and high-frequency driving, these printheads enable digital printers to deliver image quality and print speeds comparable to those of existing analogue printers. There is also no need to adjust the position of heads in multi-head arrays.

The S3200-A3 printer uses the same 24 kHz frequency as the existing S3200-A1 yet produces droplets that are 1.4 times larger. It can deliver high print quality at high speeds even when the distance between the head and media is large, such as when printing on textiles and cardboard. With an easily scalable S-shaped design and a robust structure, the S3200-A3 supports a wide range of needs and applications.

With up to 1,200 nozzles per inch (when using two colours), the I3200(8)-A1HD printer has a higher nozzle resolution than the existing I3200(4)-A1, enabling it to deliver high-definition images in a compact size without sacrificing the characteristic usability of the series. This head is suitable for both high-speed, single-pass printing as well as multi-pass printing.

The demand for digital printing with water-based ink has risen in recent years due to a desire to mitigate the environmental impact of printing. Epson will continue to develop original technology to contribute to the expansion of low environmental impact digital printing and further accelerate inkjet innovation, the release said.
