The Konica Minolta KM512 Series printhead is a robust, shear mode, piezo on-demand printhead that is usable in both binary and 4 level grayscale mode, providing variable drop size and higher print quality without the use of additional printheads.
Shear mode, Piezo On-Demand Printhead
Piezo on-demand inkjet ejects ink drops utilising deformation of small ink chambers composed of piezoelectric material, by applying electric field in accordance with signals. The principle of shear mode piezo actuation with shared wall structure allows lower power consumption as well as a high-density nozzle array.
512 Nozzle with 360 dpi Spacing
High resolution, 360 nozzle per inch spacing has enabled arranging 512 Nozzle on a compactly designed print head. The Konica Minolta KM512 Series printhead corresponding to unit drop volume capabilities 14 or 42 picoliters. The Konica Minolta KM512 Series printhead can be driven in 4 level grey-scale mode for reproducing high quality images with smoother tones.
Compatible with Solvent, UV, Oil
Due to its specially designed internal structure, the Konica Minolta KM512 Series printheads boasts a wide range of ink compatibility, including aggressive solvent inks typically used for super-wide format printers. Inks which have high viscosity at room temperature,such as UV ink, can be heated up to 55 degrees Celsius with the H type’s internal heater.
Enabling Compact Design of Head Mount System
The Konica Minolta KM512 Series printhead is specially designed to have a “wing” structure so that users can precisely align the print heads without difficulty. This feature allows easy combination of page-width printhead units for the purpose of single-pass high-speed printing. The same external design allows interchangeability of different type heads on the same mount system.
