Colourgen is selling the Seiko I Infotech (SIIT) ColorPainter H2 series mild-solvent inkjet printers previewed in Japan last October.
The new ColorPainter H2 series is available in two widths - 104in (H2-104s) and 74in (H2-74s) - and as four-colour and eight-colour machines.
Melanie Enser, product marketing manager at Colourgen, said: “The ColorPainter H2 Series prints images with consistent colour density at a maximum printing speed of 100m2/h in four-colour mode and 50m2/h in eight-colour mode. To see the printer in action, there is a short video on our website at http://bit.ly/LETHbh.
“Several functions taken from the ColorPainter W-Series are now standard in the H2 series including Smart Nozzle Mapping, which offers the ability to remap a clogged nozzle instead of having to replace a printhead. Then there’s Dynamic Dot Printing (DDP) technology, which allows the printer to jet three different drop sizes per print pass. This means the printer can print at maximum printing speed without density loss while maintaining fine graininess even at low printing resolution.”
Colourgen also now supplies Seiko I Infotech’s new low odour, HAPs-free (hazardous air pollutants) inkset for the ColorPainter W-Series large-format eco solvent printers. Seiko I Infotech’s IX inks have been specially formulated for low odour printing. The IX inks are supplied in ink bags designed for SIIT’s innovative re-loadable cartridges, which reduces environmental waste.
