Global Inkjet Systems, which develops software, drivers, firmware and electronics for industrial inkjet printheads, now supports Kyocera’s 2-colour 300dpi KJ4-03T printhead.
GIS has designed a new mini Head Interface Board (HIB-KY-2C) which connects to its existing Head Interface Board for Kyocera KJ4 printheads and developed the firmware and drivers to enable support for the KJ4-03T printhead. The new interface board is currently undergoing customer trials and should be available in production volumes in Q3 2014.
The KJ4-03T printhead has a print speed of 152m/min (simultaneous 2-colour printing at 300dpi) and an effective print width of 112mm. Its 2-colour capability effectively halves the number of printheads required in the printer and is proving a popular choice, particularly in textile applications.
