The Fujifilm Dimatix Samba GL5 Printhead.

Fujifilm Dimatix, a leading provider of inkjet printheads for commercial and industrial printing, has launched its Dimatix Samba G5L, the latest generation in the Samba printhead line. Leveraging state-of-art silicon micro electro-mechanical systems manufacturing (SI-MEMS), the Dimatix Samba G5L has a unique parallelogram design on the nozzle plate to offer simplified printhead stitching – enabling easy integration in production environments. The G5L also offers a 30%-45% larger droplet size (3.5 – 13 picolitres), providing higher in coverage at production speeds, and 1,200 x 1,200 or 1,200 x 600 dpi print resolution to produce colour-rich prints. Additionally, its design of a single printhead width of 43 mm (1.7 inches) can be configured to make a compact print bar of any width, in order to scale to various print applications. Its extensive fluid compatibility and broad ink latitude (from a robust non-wetting coating on the nozzle plate) offers robust functionality for inkjet printing and materials’ deposition. Optimized for single-pass printing, the Samba G5L offers a fast priming, higher standoff capability (up to 4 mm, without air assist and up to 5 mm with air assist), and reduced maintenance cycles from multi-level ink re-circulation – all to reduce downtime.

“With features enabling faster printing speeds, more versatility and better uptime, the Dimatix Samba G5L was engineered to meet the evolving needs of the corrugated packaging and textile industry,” said Bailey Smith, Senior Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Business Development at Fujifilm Dimatix. “The Dimatix Samba G5L will enable faster print speeds and better uptime, allowing our customers to remain competitive and deliver outstanding results.”
