Kyocera Printhead Claims World’s Fastest Inkjet Printing

The new Kyocera KJ4 Series inkjet printhead

Kyocera Corporation today announced that it has developed the world’s fastest inkjet printhead — the key component in inkjet printing equipment. Each nozzle in the new KJ4 Series printhead ejects ink at up to 60,000 dots per second (at 60kHz drive frequency); with 2,656 nozzles per head, the device is capable of printing approximately 150 million dots per second.

Kyocera said its previous inkjet printhead offered the world’s fastest print speed when it was introduced in 2008 – 150 meters per minute at 600×600dpi resolution, using a drive frequency of 30kHz. The newly developed printhead, the company adds, sets new records for high resolution, full-color inkjet printing, offering the world’s fastest print speeds in any of three resolutions: 600×360dpi (330m/min. at 40kHz), 600×600dpi (200m/min at 40kHz), and 1200×1200dpi (150m/min at 60kHz).

Kyocera will display the new printhead at the Japan Graphic Arts Show 2009 from October 6 through 10 at the Tokyo Big Sight.
