The Konica Minolta KM512 MN printhead is a robust, shear mode, a piezo on-demand printhead that is usable in both binary and 4 level greyscale mode, providing variable drop size and higher print quality without the use of additional printheads. The Konica Minolta KM512 MN printhead has 512 nozzles with a droplet size of 14 picoliters and a native resolution of 360 dpi. It is compatible with oil-based, solvent and UV inks.
Shear mode, Piezo On-Demand Printhead
Piezo on-demand inkjet ejects ink drops utilizing deformation of small ink chambers composed of piezoelectric material, by applying an electric field in accordance with signals. The principle of shear mode piezo actuation with a shared wall structure allows lower power consumption as well as a high-density nozzle array.
512 Nozzle with 360 dpi Spacing
High resolution, 360 nozzles per inch spacing has enabled arranging 512 Nozzle on a compactly designed printhead. The KM512 MN corresponds to unit drop volume capabilities of 35pl.
Compatible with Solvent, UV, Oil …
Due to its specially designed internal structure, the KM512 MN boasts a wide range of ink compatibility, including aggressive solvent inks typically used for super-wide format printers. Inks which have high viscosity at room temperature, such as UV ink, can be heated up to 55 degrees Celsius with the H type’s internal heater.
Enabling Compact Design of Head Mount System
This series is specially designed to have a “wing” structure so that users can precisely align the printheads without difficulty. This feature allows an easy combination of page-width printhead units for the purpose of single-pass high-speed printing. The same external design allows interchangeability of different type heads on the same mount system.
