GIS ships D3000 electronics

Global Inkjet Systems will ship its HMB-SE-D3000 Head Manager Board and software for the Epson D3000-A1R industrial inkjet printhead to its partners later this month though it will be early next year before the company is able to satisfy high volume demand.

Global Inkjet Systems has developed this HMB-SE-D3000 Head Manager Board for the Epson D3000-A1R printhead.

The D3000 is a 1200 npi printhead that Epson first announced back in It’s significant because its the first printhead developed by Epson to offer true recirculation around the back of the nozzle. 

GIS had committed to support this head as I reported in June. The GIS HMB-SE-D3000 Head Manager Board, which can each drive up to two of Epson’s D3000-A1R printheads. It supports the main features of the printhead, including both binary and greyscale printing, continuous printhead status monitoring, auto printhead shutdown, access to the EEPROM memory and the ability to design and generate high quality waveforms.

The drive electronics also add several additional functions, including status monitoring and diagnostics, remote updating, auto electronic shutdown and support for buffered and streamed print. It is also compatible with other solutions from GIS, including its recirculating ink delivery modules and Atlas software, which together give OEMs a fairly comprehensive solution when developing high speed inkjet industrial inkjet printers. 

Nick Geddes, CEO of GIS, commented: “We are delighted to be shipping the HMB-SE-D3000. The market demand to integrate Epson D3000-A1R printheads is high in a wide range of applications; and our customers have some significant projects in the pipeline.”
