GIS has designed a new mini Head Interface Board (HIB-KY-2C) which connects to its existing Head Interface Board for Kyocera KJ4 printheads and developed the firmware and drivers to enable support for the KJ4-03T printhead.
The KJ4-03T printhead has a print speed of 152m/min (simultaneous 2-color printing at 300dpi) and an effective print width of 112mm. Its 2-color capability effectively halves the number of printheads required in the printer and is proving a popular choice, particularly in textile applications.
GIS can now support six different printhead types from Kyocera, further strengthening the company’s position as a leading supplier of electronics and software to inkjet system builders worldwide.
The new HIB-KY-2C is currently undergoing trials with GIS customers and will be available in production volumes in Q3 2014.
