Epson unveils new printhead series
Wednesday, July 7, 2021
Epson has expanded its portfolio of PrecisionCore printheads with a new range to meet the accelerated shift towards digital printing in the commercial and industrial sectors.
Available later this year, the D3000-A1R will be the first launch in the series. Epson said the new heads will support water-based ink circulation at nozzle level, increasing reliability by reducing nozzle cleaning and capping requirements.
The printhead can be used either in single-colour 1,200dpi mode or with two colours at 600dpi resolution. This combined with high frequency driving technology is said to enable the D3000-A1R to deliver “outstanding image quality” and high print speeds comparable to those of existing analogue printers.
With a 67mm print swathe, Epson said the DC300-A1R is easily scalable for wide, high quality applications including flexible packaging, labels, and decor. Adding that it has a robust, industrial design that means it can be safely handled without causing damage to the printhead nozzles.
Epson Europe business development manager Paddy O’Hara said: “The D3000-A1R builds on the quality and reliability of our industry-leading PrecisionCore technology, adding ultimate flexibility for a wide variety of industrial printing applications.
“The width and design of the printhead is unique within the industry, allowing for highly scalable configurations in multi-head arrays.”
