Ricoh’s new ‘high firing’ TH6310F industrial inkjet printhead, designed for single or multi-pass applications in textiles, packaging and signage graphics, will be available globally from 23 November.
“The new Ricoh TH6310F will be launched as the flagship model amongst Ricoh's family of industrial inkjet printheads,” Ricoh said. “Utilizing its high firing frequencies, it is the most productive inkjet printhead by Ricoh for both single and multi-pass applications.
“Using MEMS technology enables high jetting accuracy, while its unique nozzle layout yields excellent print quality even at high gap printing required in textile and other applications. At the same time, the ink recirculation structure significantly reduces the risk of jetting failure, ensuring high drop ejection stability.
“In the industrial print market for textiles, corrugated cardboards, labels and other products, there is an increasing demand to meet a variety of customer needs, including smaller run sizes and shorter delivery times. These needs are being addressed by the rapid digitalization of industrial print, contributing to overall greater flexibility, efficiency, and productivity. These shifting and expanding requirements call for increasing demand for inkjet printheads that offer higher productivity and high-resolution printing.”
The nozzle layout of the TH6310F is designed to prevent airflow from ejected ink droplets from affecting adjacent droplets and resulting image quality, enabling high-quality printing even with a 4mm gap. The ink recirculation structure continuously circulates ink behind the nozzle, significantly reducing the risk of nozzle drying, ink particle sedimentation, and other jetting failures.
“This provides increased reliability for single-pass printing of 100m/min or more,” Ricoh said. “Compatible with Aqueous-based, UV, and Solvent inks, and can be used in a wide range of industrial applications, including textiles, corrugated cardboards, labels, binder jet, and signage graphics.”
