Global Inkjet Systems (GIS), a developer of software, drivers, firmware and electronics for industrial inkjet printheads, has announced that it can now support the two-color 300dpi Kyocera KJ4-03T printhead. GIS has designed a new mini Head Interface Board (HIB-KY-2C) that 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 152 m/min (simultaneous 2-color printing at 300 dpi) and an effective print width of 112 mm. Its two-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. The new HIB-KY-2C is currently undergoing trials with GIS customers and will be available in production volumes in Q3 2014.
