Meteoric fall in development costs


Meteor announced general release of new inkjet drivers for the popular TOSHIBA Tec CF1 printhead. The new Meteor CF1 driver enables OEMs to quickly and easily develop printing applications using the latest ink-circulating technology from Japan.

When entering new markets or developing new applications ink jet press manufacturers face many risks and costs. Meteor printhead drivers help manufacturers worldwide to reduce their development risk and time-to-market. Now Meteor’s production-ready hardware and software allows OEMs to exploit the full capabilities of these powerful TTEC CF1 printheads from day-one, resulting in a huge improvement in time-to-market and reliability.

Stefan Ross, Meteor Business Manager said “We have supplied several thousand meteor boards for a wide range of printheads since launch, and anticipate strong take up of the new board for the TTEC CF1 head. The head’s recirculation technology has resulted in strong market interest worldwide.”

Meteor electronics support the full range of TOSHIBA Tec printheads.
