GIS demonstrated 72mm wide, variable data printing at 120 metres per minute.

Global Inkjet Systems (GIS) has demonstrated fully variable data printing on a single pass printer running at 120 metres per minute using the Konica Minolta KM1024 head and the GIS Inkjet Operating System™.

“The KM1024 is the latest printhead innovation from Konica Minolta and achieves a native resolution of 360dpi and a seamless 72mm print-width in a very compact design,” said John Corrall, Managing Director of Industrial Inkjet Ltd. “The combination of our market-leading printhead with the GIS Inkjet Operating System™ offers developers an easy-to-integrate solution for high-speed, high-quality print systems.”

The GIS Inkjet Operating System™ was conceived and built as a single-source datapath solution. It helps printer manufacturers and inkjet developers save time and money when bringing new machines into production.

The Inkjet Operating System™ comprises electronics and software, and is designed to work with all commercially available industrial inkjet printheads. The Cambridge, UK based company has established a broad international customer base and has a reputation for dedicated and focussed commitment to customer service.
