Recently, there has been an increasing demand for Wide Format Printing in a growing variety of applications, from being only used for paper to applications in the Sign Industry, which specializes in commercial signs and window advertisements, the Textile Industry and the Building Materials Industry. In the printing of fabrics and building materials, which have uneven surfaces, there is a need to have a print gap between Inkjet Head and the print surface, which invariably results in deterioration in image quality. In resolving this issue, we have been successful in the development and commercialization of a new Inkjet Head which has improved Ink Jetting straightness (Dot placement accuracy), allowing for high quality prints even with an increased print gap, as well as significantly reducing the risk of contact between the Inkjet Head and the print surface.


1.Improved Ink Jetting straightness (Dot placement accuracy) enables high quality printing on materials with large uneven surfaces even with a wide print gap between the Inkjet Head and the print surface

2.Satellite Dot Reduction and Perfect Circle Dots enables the clear printing of fine detail

3.Compatible with a wide variety of inks, including water based, UV, solvent, resin inks, as well as high viscosity ink with the addition of a heater, allowing for a wider range of application to different surfaces.
