New Ricoh printhead helps Signracer build platform for fine detailed visual graphics
Ricoh is collaborating with Switzerland-based Signracer Gmbh with its latest industrial inkjet printhead to enable the creation of an entirely new flexible production platform.
Signracer Gmbh chose the RICOH MH5220 as an extension to its existing agreement with Ricoh. The collaboration reflects broader industry demand for advanced high-resolution printing with excellent close-up detail. The smaller 2.5pl native drop size of the print head allows Signracer to offer its customers even finer visual graphics, improved flesh tones and subtle pastel shades.
The print head has a built in heating element that facilitates the jetting of high viscosity ink as well as providing great fluid stability. This provides Ricoh customers with a broad range of potential application, going from labels and packaging to wide format graphics where already new platforms are being developed.
Ricoh introduced the print head at drupa in June 2016 to provide support for industrial partners in meeting market demands. The innovation builds on 30 years of Ricoh printhead manufacturing expertise and an extensive patent portfolio.
