xaar and Spectra and Konica and Seiko of inkjet print heads
In the printing industry in the past ten years of industrial piezoelectric nozzle has been significant development and progress, from the original simple label printing to wide-screen printing, deputy, chief officer from low precision to high precision output, is that printing industry is also driving another leap.
Piezoelectric inkjet nozzle as the industry with influence in the market are XAAR Britain, the United States Spectra Company, the Japanese company Konica and Seiko SPT, respectively, explain below the nozzle of each company in the Chinese market using the specific circumstances.
1. XAAR UK
The main nozzle XAAR company has XAAR128, XAAR500, XAAR126 and XAAR380, XAAR760, XAAR1001 models.
A.XAAR128 Purcell nozzle is the earliest and most widely used market, the print head, 17.4mm printing width
XAAR128/80 firing frequency: 4.2KHZ
XAAR128/80W firing frequency: 5.5KHZ
XAAR128/40 firing frequency: 8.3KHZ
XAAR128/40W firing frequency: 8.3KHZ
Purcell to face the market needs and competition, the introduction of Sensor Electronics, sprinkler, electronic-type nozzle with a 128 small pipes, with the original 128 shape and size have not changed much, the biggest difference is that there are built-in filtering e-sprinklers device, to filter impurities in the ink can protect the head of the effect on the compatibility of the ink is stronger, will extend the life of the nozzle. Own electronic device, you can adjust the temperature control is more conducive to ink jet, with the Konica nozzle similar. Smaller ink drops, the accuracy pricey, there are two main types:
XAAR electronic ignition frequency of the nozzle electron 70-W/70PL 8.5KHZ
XAAR nozzle electron 35-W/35PL electronic ignition frequency 14KHZ
B. XAAR500 is using Xaar printheads, stability and maneuverability of the best head, the print width of 70.5mm, with 500 channels, the resolution in two modes:
xaar500/80 for UV ink firing frequency 4KHZ
xaar500/80-cm oil-based ink used for the ignition frequency 7.2KHZ
xaar500/40UV for UV ink firing frequency 8KHZ
xaar500/40S for solvent ink firing frequency 8KHZ
2009, Purcell's head in xaar500 meson based on the introduction of the first, the performance has been more forward, first with the 500 meson difference is that the first shell is red. Ignition frequency and print speed are improved
C. XAAR126 nozzle print width 17.2MM
There are three common types:
XAAR126/80 speeds of up to 6 meters / second ignition frequency is 5.2KHZ
XAAR126/50 speeds of up to 6 meters / second ignition frequency is 7.5KHZ
XAAR126/35 speeds of up to 6 meters / second ignition frequency is 9KHZ,
Hangzhou, China and some other macro models factory using the latest xaar130/600 nozzle inkjet printers, the nozzle in the Russell's Web site did not see, but the aluminum alloy material, drop size 30pl, the ignition frequency of 9.3k, RBI speed 5m / s, shape and technical parameters of the model with the 126/35 are close to estimate the model it is 126/30, but the domestic manufacturers have their own names and do take some of the technical design.
Purcell is mostly produced by the nozzle manufacturing Teflon material, it can not be guaranteed using the stability and accuracy in their use will be a few months fell dramatically.
XAAR 64 is the main device used in the inkjet printer, and a dedicated inkjet printer nozzle, and in some application-specific models, there are IKONMAC and other inkjet printer devices in using this nozzle.
PROTON Proton XAAR the market is said nozzle XAAR382, because there are 382 nozzles on the market under the previous naming convention Purcell, collectively XAAR 382. Print Article width 57.3mm, this head of the main features are: built-ink configuration, and temperature regulation, also known as temperature control is conducive to the volatility of the ink, and a built-in filter, play a greater compatibility of the ink. Currently only one model:
XAAR proton nozzle(382)/60PL Typical firing frequency 7.0KHZ
XAAR proton nozzle (382) / 35PL ignition frequency is 9.5KHZ
XAAR proton nozzle(382)/ 45 or 30PL Greyscale, firing frequency 15KHZ
XAAR proton nozzle(382)/15PL Greyscale firing frequency 15KHZ
XAAR 318 Series & XAAR 760 Series & XAAR1001 series (gray line)
XAAR 318 and 760 Series 1001 Series is a gray head, with Seiko SEIKO's SPT510GS, SPT508GS, SPT255GS Series, Toshiba TOSHIBA TEC of CA4, CA5, CA3, CB1, CE2 series of gray nozzle similar to that of the so-called gray ink the color processing can form a gradual transition process. makes the picture more vivid and more realistic color of a technology.
XAAR 318/CA2 6-42PL print width of 53.6mm bar ignition frequency: 4.8KHZ
XAAR 318/CA4 6-42PL print width of 53.6mm bar ignition frequency: 6.2KHZ
XAAR 760/GS8 8-42PL print width of 73.8mm bar ignition frequency: 7.8KHZ
XAAR 1001/GS6 6-42PL print width of 70.5mm,typical firing frequency: 6.0KHZ
XAAR 1001/GS12 12-84PL printh width :70.5mm,typical friring frequency:6-12KHZ, use ink oil,number grey levels 8, the head for ceramic ink printer and other single pass print.
XAAR 1001/GS6 are printed in a Beijing bar code on the machine application, xaar1001 currently printing is widely used in ceramics, Spain and Italy are based on this large ceramic printer head.
2. Japan's Fujifilm Fuji Dimatix (formerly the American Spectra)
Spectra Company is the production of office printing the first thermal foam nozzle, due to the emergence of HP's research and development finally abandoned industrial piezoelectric nozzle instead, after the acquisition of Japan's Fuji. The nozzle is characterized by a smaller drop (corresponding to high precision), the jet is very high frequency (speed), the ink is not very "picky", Witt was the first American brand with Spectra heads, but also the most in the global market acclaim Printer, Spectra nozzle problem is the price too high, while Kuwait has sold in hundreds of domestic, but several domestic manufacturers by Spectra inkjet printhead products, and always unsuccessfully mainstream products are for export to Lord. It is a lightweight stainless steel container packaging precision nozzle, all components can be fast moving, for the superior performance of the printer, there are four main varieties of model series:

SE3 128/35PL nozzle diameter: 42um ignition frequency: 15KHZ
128 series of nozzles which stability and performance with XAAR128 + sprinklers have many similarities, but Nova256 series in the successful development of inkjet printers made before by such a basic inkjet nozzle manufacturer - Witt private companies. From the nozzle's internal structure, in direct contact with the ink nozzle portion, XAAR nozzle is used in Teflon-long material, Spectra head with steel. Ink has some corrosion, as Spectra steel nozzle, the first nozzle greatly improved the corrosion resistance of the ink; ink pressure from the shower head out of the nozzle diameter, high pressure tends to deformation, Spectra printhead nozzle steel Teflon than XAAR Long more pressure within the coating material. So head over XAAR nozzle Spectra has a longer life, changing the nozzle is to say consumables. Comes to printing speed, Spectra XAAR sprinkler head several times higher than the ignition frequency, so that the inkjet printing machines greatly improve the speed in the industry, Spectra is a relatively high-end nozzle head, the main application of domestic manufacturers To: Hong Hua, Ya-color blue, Cyber, Tai Wei and so on.
