GIS develops drivers for Dimatix heads

Global Inkjet Systems, or GIS, which mainly develops drive electronics for various printheads, has developed a new solution that’s capable of driving a wide range of Fujifilm Dimatix printheads, including the latest high-performance Starfire SG600.

Global Inkjet Systems’ HMB-FD-HV Head Management Board can drive up to four Fujifilm Dimatix Starfire SG600 or four Starfire SG1024.

This new Head Management Board –  the HMB-FD-HV – can drive up to four Fujifilm Dimatix Starfire SG600 or four Starfire SG1024 from each board.  It can also be set up to drive large numbers of the Polaris, Sapphire, Emerald, Nova, Galaxy and S-Class printhead ranges from a single board.

It’s based  on GIS’s Ethernet platform, which includes data management, waveform generation and printhead diagnostics, all accessed via Gigabit Ethernet with a robust protocol and standard Ethernet components. It supports the full binary and greyscale capabilities of the Fujifilm Dimatix printheads with multi-level waveforms, meniscus activation and jet straightening control.

Debbie Thorp, business development director, commented: “This new Head Management Board for the Fujifilm printhead range demonstrates the huge flexibility and capability of the GIS Ethernet platform. We are able not only to support the new SG600, but also to offer an upgraded solution to users of other well-established Fujifilm printheads.”

The HMB-FD-HV works with GIS’ Atlas customisable User Interface and Atlas Machine Control Services software, which has been designed for managing the entire printing and sub-system process, from image to swathe conversion and integration of workflow through to print queues, transport and beyond.
