Epson launches new T-series printheads

The T3200 printhead

Epson will add two new printheads to its lineup later in the year. The new products will strengthen the lineup for applications including signage and easily allow printers to deliver high-quality print at high speed.

The T3200-U3 enables simultaneous high-quality, four-colour CMYK printing at high speed from a single printhead. Incorporating a heater in the printhead makes printing with highly viscous UV ink possible, providing an optimal digital printing environment for signage and packaging. The two-colour version, theT1600-U3, will be released to market at the same time.

These new products will expand Epson’s PrecisionCore printhead offering to a six series lineup and provide a diverse range of digital printing options.

Features of the T3200

  • Enables outstanding print quality in four-colour CMYK from a single printhead with built-in heater

Ordinarily, a pair of two-colour printheads must be combined to print in four-colour. The T3200, however, can eject the four CMYK colours from a single printhead. A precision-processed positioning mechanism will help save time and money by removing the need to engineer a mechanism to determine the spacing between printheads or adjust during installation.

Features of the T3200 and T1600

  • High-speed printing enabled by a wide effective print width

The T3200 and T1600 have an effective print width of 67.2mm (2.65in) and a piezoelectric actuator to enable the ejection of larger ink droplets at higher frequencies. This facilitates faster printing without compromising on image quality or ease of installation.

  • A built-in heater for greater UV ink compatibility

The T3200 and T1600 are the first printheads in the Epson PrecisionCore series to have a built-in heater. The heater makes it possible to eject UV inks of various viscosities, expanding the range of possible applications, especially within signage and packaging.

  • A variety of printers can be developed by combining the T3200 and T1600

The four-colour T3200 and the two-colour T1600 can be flexibly arranged to enable customers to develop many different types of printers with different numbers of colours and speeds. For example, the T3200 can be equipped with CMYK ink and the T1600 can be equipped with special inks such as white and varnish.

The two new products will accelerate the digitisation of signage printing and provide customers with an environment in which high-quality, high-speed printing can be more easily implemented.

Epson will continue to develop original technology to contribute to the expansion of its customers’ businesses and further accelerate inkjet innovation.
