Fujifilm Dimatix has brought to the market an entire new Samba GMA line of printheads. The printheads are based on silicon micro electro mechanical systems (Si-MEMS) manufacturing. The Samba GMA is now much more com pact, has low-voltage printheads for tasks like scanning applications of textiles, indoor signage, soft signage, and more.
The Samba GMA 33 model features 384 nozzles, native 300-dpi resolution, and adjustable drop size from 5 to 18 pL. The best part about the printheads is that is is compatible with UV-curable, solvent, and aqueous inks. The line also offers features like RediJet continuous ink recirculation technology and VersaDrop multilevel grayscale.
RediJet continuous ink recirculation technology incorporated with several innovations including nozzle plate design, specialized nozzle plate geometry, and waveforms tailored to specific fluids the systems unleash full productive potential of the Samba GMA printheads by allowing printing to be done quickly with minimal ink waste and greater reliability.
The groundbreaking and unique VersaDrop jetting technology allows multiple fixed drop sizes in binary mode and greyscale capability from one printhead without losing productivity. In binary operating mode, the Samba GMA printhead is designed to eject adjustable drop sizes from 5 to 18 picoliters, and can support grayscale levels as defined by the users control electronics.
“The speed, precision and scalability of the Samba GMA platform sets a new standard for scanning printer designs, providing significantly expanded capabilities that system developers will need to meet the requirements of high-speed, high-image quality printing,” said Terry O’Keeffe, strategic customer support manager, FUJIFILM Dimatix, Inc.
