How is the Ricoh GH2220 printhead?

Let’s take a look at the basic introduction first: The latest Ricoh GH2220 breaks through the industry’s printing accuracy of 3PL. At the same time, the price of the GH2220 printhead is less than ¥7,000, and the printing speed is completely industrial-grade.
How is the performance of the Ricoh GH2220 printhead? Is it durable?
This article comprehensively analyzes the advantages and disadvantages of the Ricoh GH2220 print head!

Ricoh GH2220 printhead used on a printer

It is well known that the advantages of Ricoh print heads are good precision and long service life, while the disadvantage is high price. This time, Ricoh launched the GH2220 print head, which is completely affordable and even lower than the water-based print head. This is really a blessing for customers. At the same time, many people are worried about the performance of such print heads and whether they are durable.

It looks a bit like an Epson printhead, but the precision is higher than that of Epson. It is also the most sophisticated printhead among all the printheads due to its small ink droplet of 3PL. It is smaller than Ricoh G4 and G5, but it looks very coordinated. Let’s take a look at the main parameters of the Ricoh GH2220 printhead.

Ricoh GH2220 printhead color configuration:
gh2220 printheads are also single color, i.e. single head single color, standard colors: C, Y, K, W, W, that is, 6 printheads are used for configuration. If it is a high configuration, two more printheads are added for light color.

What is the printing effect of the Ricoh GH2220 printhead?
The ink droplets of the GH2220 printhead are finer than those of the Epson printhead. This printhead has 3pl ink droplets and the printing effect is better than that of Epson. It can print fine fonts as small as 2# and about 0.6mm. It is very suitable for customers with very high requirements for effects.

Is the Ricoh GH2220 Printhead Durable?

Ricoh gh2220 printhead is a structure that has been rigorously tested and applied in industry. It has been used abroad for several years, but it has only been introduced to China for use now. There is definitely no problem with the nozzle, but it is necessary to test the technology of the UV printer manufacturer. Ricoh gh2220 is also an industrial printhead, with a plastic structure on the outside, a full steel structure on the inside, a built-in heating device, and ink circulation. Therefore, the fluidity of the ink is very good, and the impact of the ink on the printhead is also reduced to a very low level, so the durability is very good.
