Seiko Instruments’ printhead division is set to unveil its 600dpi printhead, the RCE2560, tailored for textile and corrugated cardboard markets, at drupa 2024. Visitors to People & Technology’s booth C30 in Hall 5 will have the opportunity to witness the RCE2560 in action.

The excitement surrounding the RCE2560 is explained to stem from its combination of true recirculation, isolated channel technology and integrated next-generation waveform controllers. This amalgamation of these features is said to ensure unparalleled printing performance and efficiency.

With 2560 distributed nozzles across four rows over a printing width of 108.3mm, the RCE2560 delivers high printing performance within a compact footprint. The recirculation system facilitates a high flow rate directly behind the nozzles, resulting in superior print quality and consistency.

One of the key highlights of the RCE2560 is its versatility, offering multiple grey levels with a drop volume range from 9-20pl along with the possibility to accommodate various fluid types, including aqueous, solvent-, oil-, or UV-based inks.

Seiko Instruments aims to expand its reach beyond traditional markets like ceramics, coding and marking and packaging, leveraging the RCE2560 to explore new opportunities. Collaborating with partners, the company is committed to paving the way for sustainable options in diverse industries.
