HDC-SG600 head driver card
Supplier of electronics and software for industrial inkjet printheads, Meteor Inkjet has added the HDC-SG600 head driver card, printhead evaluation kit and waveform development kit for Fujifilm Dimatix SG600 printheads to its offering.
The just launched SG600 recirculating printhead is suitable for textiles, corrugated packaging, ceramics and other industrial print applications. In the same printhead family as the SG1024, the SG600 has a native resolution up to 600dpi, which will allow printer OEMs to offer higher ink deposition or finer detailed imaging at desired print speeds.
Each HDC-SG600 head driver card drives one SG600 printhead supported through a PCC-E GbitE print controller card, which can accommodate up to eight HDCs. Multiple PCCs can be linked seamlessly to drive up to 2024 printheads.
In addition, Meteor also offers a printhead evaluation kit and a waveform development kit to ease print system design and speed time to market. Multi-head, multi-ink configurations can be evaluated and integrated using electronics and software that can then be transferred straight to manufacturing.
Managing director Clive Ayling commented, ‘We have a long history of collaboration with Fujifilm Dimatix, having launched our first Meteor-branded drive electronics for Dimatix printheads in 2006. We are proud to be the first supplier to offer production-ready electronics, software and evaluation equipment for the new SG600 printhead and we look forward to providing customers an easy to integrate, scalable solution with the assurance of long-term, reliable supply for both development and production requirements.’
