The new GIS Head Interface Board (HIB-FD-C1024/4) supports the latest printhead technology from Fujifilm Dimatix - the StarFire SG-1024/M-C. The new printhead was launched by Dimatix at the DRUPA trade show in Dusseldorf, Germany.
Global Inkjet Systems announces drive electronics for new Fujifilm Dimatix SG-1024 printhead
The new GIS Head Interface Board (HIB-FD-C1024/4) connects to GIS’s existing electronics, designed to drive Fujifilm Dimatix family of printheads, and now adds the capability to drive the new StarFire SG-1024/M-C.
The Fujifilm Dimatix StarFire SG-1024/M-C printhead is the first of a new family of printheads and this first model is targeted at the industrial ceramic tile printing market.
“GIS is a well-established and significant supplier to the ceramics market and we look forward to working with customers who choose to use the SG-1024 printhead in their systems” said Nick Geddes, CEO of GIS.
The new GIS HIB enables the SG1024 to be driven at full specification and at continuous full duty cycle – essential for 24/7 production environments. GIS technology also supports the Dimatix VersaDrop jetting technology, providing a fully configurable waveform generation engine, which allows users to specify slew rates and voltage levels for each grey level drop – optimising print quality and maximising user control over the printhead performance.
The new HIB is already being used in the field at beta sites.
Founded in 2006, GIS has rapidly expanded to become a leading developer of fully integrated printhead operating systems. GIS Print Manager Boards, Head Personality Boards, Printer Drivers and User Interface Software with the GIS Variable Data RIP are designed to work reliably in rugged industrial settings and are currently being used in key industrial printing applications such as ceramic tiles, labels, textiles, plastic cards, wide format graphics and materials deposition.
