Revolutionary 1440 dpi Print Head on Board
A revolutionary variable drop piezo print head is at the heart of the VJ-1324’s stunning performance. This 1440-nozzle head comprises four colour sections. Each colour section has 360 nozzles, or two 180 nozzle rows per colour. Because all colour sections are united in one head, there is no need for time-consuming head-to-head calibration routines.
The print head is capable of producing ink drops ranging from 3.5 pl to 35 pl. Bottom line, it can produce a wider range of ink dots, which are moreover jetted at a much faster speed compared to other print heads on the market. The result is faster output speeds and moreover a much better print quality at higher output speeds.
