Press release from the issuing company
Santa Clara, CA – FUJIFILM Dimatix, the world's leading supplier of drop-on-demand inkjet printheads for industrial applications, today reported its participation at the 18th annual Shanghai International Ad, Print, Pack & Paper Expo July 7-10 exceeded expectations. An eager reception for its industrial printing and materials deposition products, and a strong showing of its new Q-Class printheads in dozens of OEM printer products around the show floor were defining factors.
Materials Deposition- Asian Market Introduction
Based on Dimatix' proprietary Silicon MEMS (Si MEMS) technology, the new D-Class printheads feature 1 and 10 pl drop sizes and 128 individually addressable channels with driver per nozzle (DPN) technology to compensate for any variability between channels. Designed for non-contact printing of functional fluids for applications such as displays, electronics and biotechnology, the new printheads can deposit conductive lines and features so small that they are not visible to the naked eye.
Proof in the Booth…
…And Around the Show Floor
Many OEMs have incorporated new FUJIFILM Dimatix 512-jet Spectra Polaris printheads in their latest wide format inkjet printer designs. Most of the printers were UV and solvent ink designs featuring Spectra Polaris PQ-512/15 and PQ-512/35 printheads. These included the new Rodin P9320 solvent printer from Hi-Jet and a new design from Flex Europa that featured eight Spectra Polaris PQ-512/15 heads. Other configurations included as few as two printheads with a total of 1,024 channels to models with as many as 12 printheads for jetting ink through more than 6,000 independent nozzles.
The Spectra Polaris PQ-512 series are general-purpose drop-on-demand printheads that utilize the binary operating mode of Dimatix' VersaDrop jetting technology and Q-Class construction to deliver adjustable ink drop sizes from 512 individually addressable nozzles. Polaris series printheads are compatible with a broad range of inks, including UV-curable inks, aggressive organic solvents and most recently aqueous inks, making them suitable for a wide variety of commercial and industrial printing applications such as wide-format, label and decorative printing, at resolutions up to 1000 dpi.
Additional printer models displayed by OEMs on the show floor included a Dimatix Spectra Nova-based solvent printer from Korean manufacturer DGI Company as well as several other Spectra Galaxy and Spectra Skywalker based printers.
"The Shanghai International Ad, Print, Pack & Paper Expo has become one of the world's prominent venues for the global advertising and sign industry and a showcase for inkjet technology in the Far East," said Martin Schoeppler, CEO and President, FUJIFILM Dimatix, Inc.
