FUJIFILM Dimatix, the world’s leading provider of inkjet printheads for commercial and industrial printing, is pleased to announce the launch of the DIMATIX Samba® G5L, the latest generation in the Samba printhead family.
Leveraging state-of-art silicon micro electro-mechanical systems manufacturing (SI-MEMS), the DIMATIX Samba G5L printhead has a unique parallelogram design on the nozzle plate to offer simplified printhead stitching — enabling integration in production environments. The DIMATIX Samba G5L also offers a 30%-45% larger drop size (3.5 – 13pL), providing higher in coverage at production speeds at 1,200×1,200 or 1,200×600 dpi printing to produce color rich prints.
Additionally, the DIMATIX Samba G5L’s design of a single printhead width of 43mm (1.7 inches) can be configured to make a compact print bar of any width in order to scale to various print applications. Its extensive fluid compatibility, and broad ink latitude from a robust non-wetting coating on the nozzle plate, offers robust functionality for inkjet printing and materials deposition.
Optimized for single-pass, the DIMATIX Samba G5L offers a fast priming, higher standoff capability (up to 4 mm, without air assist and up to 5 mm with air assist), and reduced maintenance cycles from multi-level ink recirculation, to limit downtime.
“With features enabling faster print speed, more versatility and better uptime, the DIMATIX Samba G5L was engineered to meet the evolving needs of the corrugated packaging and textile industry, said Bailey Smith, senior vice president, sales, marketing and business development, FUJIFILM Dimatix Inc. “We are pleased to unveil our latest technology – the new DIMATIX Samba G5L printhead.
