Japan KMIJ Inkjet Technology Co., Ltd. is a subsidiary of Konica Minolta Japan, established in 2005. After the company purchased the patent rights of Xaar, it developed a piezoelectric print head based on Xaar technology. Its products are mainly low-end and medium-end, and are mainly used in circuit printing, advertising inkjet, textile and other industries in the domestic market.
Analog waveforms are used to achieve high productivity and print performance for multi-drop continuous drop jetting. In addition, according to the characteristics of the ink, the freedom of waveform design is greatly enhanced; printing can be performed at 6pl/40kHz and 20pl/22kHz.
Designed for high quality single pass printing systems. Primarily designed for UV inks, it can also be used with higher viscosity water-based inks or hot melt inks. Delivers 3.5pl drop volume at 600dpi resolution in a narrow 19.8mm space using proven batch piezoelectric technology.
This printhead is suitable for use with circulating ink systems, eg for white or metallic inks. The printhead can be used in binary or grayscale (3bit) mode.
The independent drive system enables the drive frequency (45 kHz) to be approximately three times higher than the current KM1024 series. This inkjet printhead is ideal for developing single-pass inkjet printers capable of high-speed printing.
Like the existing KM1024 series, it is equipped with a high-performance IC. Capable of printing patterns in up to 8 shades of gray.
This enables use in new applications that require richer layers and higher image quality.
Compared to the KM512 printhead, the number of nozzles has been doubled to achieve higher densities, resulting in an expanded print width to 72mm. This wider print width further increases the printhead's suitability for printing systems that require high productivity (high speed printing) (such as single-pass commercial printers).
The high resolution of 360dpi enables 512 nozzles to be arranged on a compact print head. The KM512 series includes types L, M and S, corresponding to 42pl, 14pl and 4pl of unit ink droplets respectively. Types M and S can be driven in 4-level grayscale mode for reproducing high-quality images with smooth tones
