Featuring an extra wide print-width (108mm), the RC1536 ink circulation printhead enables print-bars to be configured with a small number of printheads.
It is designed to work at low-voltage, thereby reducing initial investment to driver electronics with the additional benefit of low energy consumption. Isolated channel technology allows the printhead to operate at high frequency (up to 40kHz) and achieve 8 levels of greyscale with a drop range size between 13pl to 100pl.
It provides sufficient throughput for high speed industrial productions and the high flow Ink Circulation Structure means ink constantly circulates immediately behind the nozzles at high speed. This ensures nozzles recover from blockages automatically and instantaneously, eliminating the need for routine nozzle cleaning during operation and significantly reducing ink wastage.
Ink is in constant circulation and always ready to jet, removing the need for priming or purging before starting printing. It is also suitable for Stop-and-Go operations. The RC1536 ensures a long and stable operation without wasting ink or time and allows customers to enjoy the highest possible productivity from their printhead.
The constant ink stream within the circulation structure removes bubbles and impurities and prevents sedimentation of ink containing large pigments. The printhead can accept a wide range of viscosities compared to conventional printheads. It is compatible with oil and UV based fluids and a water-based ink version is forthcoming. The RC1536 is adaptable to a wide variety of applications such as ceramic tiles, corrugated cardboard, textiles, varnish, 3D, Printed Electronics and other customised fluids.
