The Konica Minolta KM1024 Series printhead is a robust, shear mode, piezo on-demand printhead that is usable in both binary and 8 level greyscale mode, providing variable drop size and higher print quality without the use of additional printheads.
Konica Minolta KM1024 Series Printhead
Major improvement in productivity by use of 1024 multi-nozzles and realization of wide print width of 72mm.
The unit is equipped with twice the number of nozzles mounted on the KM512 printhead, enabling the high density required to realize the 72mm print width. This increased width further enhances applicability to printing systems (e.g.Single-pass inkjet printers) that demand high productivity.
Increased grey-scale levels produce richer tones and more subtle gradients making the printhead even more attractive to existing and new print applications.
Equipped with a new control IC, the KM1024 printhead can print up to a maximum of 8 drop sizes. This allows even greater control of the printed image resulting in smoother colour gradients and more precisely matched tones.
We have added 42pl and 6pl droplet volumes to our lineup
In order to support all kinds of industrial applications, we have added large-droplet (42pl) and small-droplet (6pl) types to our lineup. To satisfy our customers’ needs and print applications, we offer capabilities ranging from high-denition to high-speed printing.
The KM1024 is suitable for use in a diverse range of industrial printing applications.
The product range includes an integral heater and compatibility with solvent, UV and oil ink types.
The KM1024 Series features environmentally considerate products ( With Green Product Approval* ).
Compared to the KM512 Series, the CO2 emissions level during usage of the product has been reduced by approximately 50% thanks to the development of the low-capacitance actuator. In addition, the amount of petroleum-derived resources used has been reduced by approximately 20%. The product also features a slimmer printhead, lighter weight (approximately 20% less than the KM512 Series) and a footprint approximately 20% smaller.
