Thursday, March 12, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

DPS Innovations, a developer and supplier of control boards for industrial printheads, is pleased to announce the release of a new driver board specifically designed for the industrial printhead Ricoh GH2220, supplied by a well-known Japanese company.

The key advantage of Ricoh GH2220 printhead is durability, it has industrial strength structure that is characteristic of other, more expensive types of printheads produced by Ricoh. Another important factor is the price, which will be lower than the price of a similar printhead manufactured by Epson company, a well-known printhead manufacturing company.

DPS control driver board for Ricoh GH2220 is now available for order to all equipment manufacturers and integrators of inkjet solutions. Together with the printhead driver board DPS can also supply full datapath line (Ethernet based), continuous ink supply system with negative vacuum pressure, motion control for X,Y,Z, as well as printhead cleaning system. DPS system has modular architecture and can be used partially as well as a full printer engine including customizable user interface software.

"We have developed and completed testing of our newest control board for Ricoh GH2220, and we were convinced during the testing of the high reliability that this printhead provides" - says the founder of DPS Innovations Mr. Vlad Mirchev.

'Taking into consideration that this printhead is geared towards low cost inkjet solutions, we have come up with a highly attractive pricing policy. I am sure that you will not find a better cost per nozzle anywhere in the world.' - says Mr. Jon-Andri Mantel - Director of DPS innovations european office.

Based on calculations done by DPS team, the entry level set of control electronics, including the cost of a printhead, will be priced at 0,6 USD per nozzle. ( price for electronics + GH2220 printhead).

One needs to be reminded that an average price of an industrial printhead on the market is usually about 3-4 USD per nozzle (not including electronic control boards).
