Global Inkjet Systems (GIS) will start shipping its high-performance drive electronics and software for the new Epson D3000-A1R industrial inkjet printhead this month (October 2021).

Specifically, the new GIS HMB-SE-D3000 head manager board will ship to GIS launch partners this month. Volume roll out of the HMB-SE-3000 is scheduled for early 2022 to meet the expected high market demand. OEMs and system builders are invited to engage with GIS now to discuss their integration needs for the Epson D3000-A1R printhead.

HMB-SE-D3000 can drive up to two Epson D3000-A1R printheads per board, and includes print data management, greyscale waveform control and printhead diagnostics, all accessed over Ethernet. It is complemented by GIS’ recirculating ink delivery modules and Atlas software.

GIS CEO Nick Geddes said, ‘The market demand to integrate Epson D3000-A1R printheads is high in a wide range of applications; and our customers have some significant projects in the pipeline.’
