Konica 1024 print heads are produced by Japanese manufacturers. It is characterized by precision technology, piezoelectric ink-on-demand drive, industrial inkjet printhead with high-speed drive, 1024 nozzles.
Independent Drive Mode for All Nozzles
The Konica 1024 series is a multi-line inkjet print head with independent drive modes for all nozzles, upgrading the previous 3-cycle drive mode to an independent drive mode in which all 1024 nozzles can fire at the same time. Due to high-precision arrangement of 256 nozzles in 4 rows to form a high-density structure, the nozzle position accuracy has been improved, and high-definition printing quality can be achieved.
Using the Konica 1024 printhead, the multi-nozzle greatly increases productivity, enabling 72mm wide prints. The unit is equipped with nozzles twice the number of Konica Nozzle 512 printhead, providing the required print width to achieve 72mm of high density. The increased width is more suitable for printing systems that require high productivity.
The use of new, high-efficiency piezoelectric actuators for Konica printheads reduces printhead energy consumption by 50%. The drive voltage of Konica Minolta’s piezoelectric ink-on-demand printheads is already lower than that of other printheads, and the new actuators used in Konica Printhead 1024 further reduce energy consumption. This makes the printhead ideal for a “green” design, demonstrating Konica Minolta’s consistent respect for the environment. The addition of the Konica Printhead 1024 grayscale level reproduces rich tones and subtle gradations, making the printhead more attractive for existing and new printing applications.
New Control IC
Equipped with a new control IC, the Konica Printhead 1024 printhead can print ink droplets of up to 8 sizes. It gains greater control over printed images, reproducing smooth color gradations and precisely matched tones.
Ultra-Thin, Space-Saving Shape
Konica print head 1024 is the latest Konica print head, breaking the traditional Konica print head 512 series in one fell swoop. Among them, the ultra-thin, space-saving print head shape of Konica Print Head 1024 improves printing quality and makes the machine design more compact.
The Konica Printhead 1024 can be installed compactly to minimize alignment errors in transport or traverse systems. Improved print registration can realize consistently high-quality prints. Since multiple print heads can be installed in a small space, the length of the printing channel is usually greatly shortened, and the overall volume of the machine is reduced.
