JAPAN: High-speed Konica printer takes a bow
A new high-speed inkjet textile printer, Nassenger VII, has been unveiled by Konica Minolta IJ Technologies.
Sales of the printer, which the company said incorporates newly-developed high-performance inkjet printheads, will begin in European markets in mid-April.
Nassenger VII uses new 512-nozzle high-speed drive inkjet printheads, delivering a maximum print speed of 210sq m per hour - about 3.6 times faster than its predecessor.
The printer is also equipped with a multi-gradation recording mode to control droplet size, enabling the reproduction of a wide range of tones from lightest to darkest, said Konica Minolta.
The company added that the inks used complied with health and safety regulations, and contained no carcinogenic materials, making them safe for operators.
Nassenger VII will be exhibited and demonstrated at Fespa Digital 2009, an exhibition to be held in Amsterdam on 12-14 May this year.
