Seiko 508GS Printhead vs. Seiko 1024GS Printhead

Seiko 508GS printhead and Seiko 1024 printhead are two types of printheads used in the field of industrial UV printers, which are different from civilian printheads.
On the one hand, the printing speed, service life, and stability of the printheads are better than those of civilian types. On the other hand, the price of the printheads is also higher than that of civilian types. When choosing, it is necessary to make a technical analysis of the output, printing effect, printing cost, and other aspects based on the material itself, and then determine which suitable printhead to choose.
In actual applications, these two printheads are mostly used in wide-format models, such as 2513, 2030, 2533, 3040, and other models. There are two main reasons:

  1. The wider the width of the UV printer, the more directly it affects the printing speed. Only on a wide enough format can the printing speed of the printhead be improved;
  2. The size of the printhead itself is also larger than that of civilian printheads. If there are five printheads as standard or 8 or 12 printheads as high-end, the size of the cart is already very large and needs to be installed on large-size equipment, otherwise, the moving position is very small.

Seiko 508GS Printhead

This Seiko printhead has a width of 71.54MM, the model is Seiko 508GS, with 508 nozzles. The minimum aperture of this printhead is 12PL, and it has 4 levels of grayscale gradient. It is characterized by all-steel structure, good impact resistance and shock resistance. There is a screen connection at the bottom of the back of the head. The flat interface is equivalent to secondary heating of the printhead to ensure that the printhead will not be affected by temperature during use in winter and cause ink to break. The printing speed can fully meet the production demand of 15 square meters per hour.

Seiko 508GS printhead parameter introduction:

Nozzle width: 71.54mm
Model: 508GS
Number of nozzles: 508
Inkjet aperture: 12PL, 4-level grayscale gradient

Seiko 1024GS Printhead

Seiko 1024GS is 72.17M wide and has a minimum aperture of 7PL. There is an ink heating system at the bottom of the printhead, and it is double heated on both sides. The heating on both sides of the nozzle can reach up to 45℃ and the minimum can be adjusted to 20℃. The Seiko 1024GS nozzle belongs to the serial port type interface. When the serial port type interface is disassembled, it will not plug the flat wire of the printhead in reverse to prevent the printhead from being damaged or directly burned. Seiko 1024GS printhead is also detachable and can be directly disassembled and cleaned. Its service life can be up to 3 years, and its printing speed can fully meet the production demand of 25 square meters per hour.
