Global Inkjet Systems (GIS), which develops software, drivers, firmware and electronics for industrial inkjet printheads, now supports the new Xaar 1002 printhead range. GIS has designed a new Head Interface Board (HIB-XR-1002) to drive the 1002, without the need for the Xaar HPC. The HIB connects directly to the Xaar 1002 printhead and is designed to drive the printhead to full specification.
Xaar launched the “all new” Xaar 1002 in March this year and the printhead incorporates multiple new technology features including improved drop volume uniformity and drop placement accuracy. It is available in a number of versions including GS6, GS12 and GS40 – all of which are supported by the new GIS Head Interface Board HIB-XR-1002.
Debbie Thorp, Business Development Director at GIS, says that many customers are moving from the 1001 t the 1002 head, adding: “The 1002 is a significant printhead across key markets for GIS – ceramics, labelling, packaging and additive manufacturing – and with the print quality enhancements we expect more machine builders to start using this printhead.”
