Earlier this month I reported on Epson’s latest printhead, the D3000 A1R, and now Global Inkjet Systems has announced that it has developed drive electronics and software to support this head. The 1200 npi D3000-A1R is the first Epson printhead to offer ink recirculation around the back of the nozzle.
This support comes in the form of the HMB-SE-D3000 Head Manager Board, which can drive up to two of the Epson D3000-A1R printheads per board. It includes print data management, greyscale waveform control and printhead diagnostics, which can all be accessed over Ethernet.
The D3000 is Epson’s first printhead to offer nozzle level ink recirculation and so GIS is also offering its proven recirculating ink delivery modules. In addition, GIS also supplies its Atlas software, which includes a range of different capabilities.
Nick Geddes, CEO of GIS, commented, “With launch partners already lined up, GIS is pleased to be in a position to offer OEMs and system integrators support for the Epson D3000, and we invite other interested system builders to contact us to discuss their plans for using this printhead.”
GIS has also said that it will offer support for more Epson heads later this year. You can find further information from globalinkjetsystems.com.
