A JetXpert-based ink development kit, specifically designed to address the unique characteristics of the Epson DX5 print head, is now available for purchase.
The DX5 print head is gaining popularity for industrial inkjet applications. The unique DX5 geometry and drive characteristics make ink development and optimization particularly challenging. Characterizing fluid performance by measuring the in-flight characteristics of droplets is a critical step in successful system integration.
“We are offering this kit in response to numerous customer requests”, says Yair Kipman, President of ImageXpert. “By offering our customers an integrated DX5 development kit based on our proven JetXpert technology, their development process can be more efficient, and insights into ink behavior during jetting can help drive informed optimization decisions.”
ImageXpert 's ink development kit for the Epson DX5 includes a JetXpert system for dropwatching and analysis of drops in flight, specially designed mounting hardware for the unique DX5 print head, JetXpert analysis software for measurement of drop volume, velocity and trajectory, a proprietary DX5 print head driver is provided to trigger droplet generation for analysis of drops-in-flight, a custom ink supply system , and avacuum-assisted syringe-based purge system is included to allow manual purging of the head.
“Offering this kit to our customers allows them to evaluate the DX5 head as a potential solution for their applications”, Kipman continues. “Customers can purchase a full JetXpert-based DX5 development kit, and existing JetXpert systems can be retrofitted.”
