GIS adds Konica Minolta Printhead Modules capability to expanding product range

20th December 2016
Global Inkjet Systems (GIS), global leader in industrial inkjet software and system components, now offers its flexible drive electronics for the new Konica Minolta KM1800i and KM1024i double-head modules.

The pre-aligned modules enable 720dpi (KM1024iSAE-C for aqueous inks) and 1200dpi (KM1800iSHC-C for solvent, oil and UV curable inks) and are used in the successful Konica Minolta Nassenger SP-1 single pass textile printer and the KM-1/ KM-C cut sheet printers respectively. Konica Minolta (KM) is now offering these Modules to OEM machine builders and system integrators.

The GIS HIB-KM-1024i and HIB-KM-1800i Head Interface Boards, which each drive two printheads, perfectly complement the new Modules and provide complete printhead and waveform control.

“The trend to higher resolution single pass continues, and these new Modules enable integrators of KM heads to build higher capability systems,” said Debbie Thorp, Business Development Director at GIS, “and the Modules are commercially proven in KM’s own production systems.”
