Meteor announces support for two new Epson PrecisionCore printheads

Meteor Inkjet further expands its product portfolio by offering solutions for Epson’s new S1600 and S800 PrecisionCore printheads. These heads join the previously launched S3200, first offered to industrial inkjet print system builders in 2019. Epson PrecisionCore printheads embody technology that enables outstanding image quality, productivity, durability and printhead scalability.

The S1600 and S800 are built with the same thin film piezo building blocks as the S3200 and have been developed in response to customer requests for smaller printheads. With its compact form factor, the S1600 is ideally suited for carriage mounting in scanning applications, while the fine nozzle pitch and small surface area of the S800 is perfect in direct-to-shape applications. 

Coupled with Meteor’s unique capability to combine printhead types from the same or different printhead families, OEMs can reduce the time and risk associated with the design and delivery of complex industrial inkjet systems.

Available immediately, Meteor’s complete package of solutions for Epson PrecisionCore printheads includes scalable electronics and comprehensive software. In addition, Meteor’s DropWatcher is an essential tool to accelerate time to market for new inkjet applications.

“We’re keen to join Epson in helping as many customers as possible convert from analogue to digital printing.  Meteor’s electronics and software provide the fastest and easiest way to unlock the potential of these new printheads,” says Jonathan Wilson, Meteor’s Sales Director.

Duncan Ferguson, Vice President, Epson Europe adds: “Epson and Meteor are collaborating closely to ensure Epson’s unique PrecisionCore printhead technology can be integrated easily into industrial printing engines for multiple applications. The role of Meteor in providing high quality, reliable electronics to drive Epson’s industrial inkjet printheads is paramount to this effort, and we welcome this broadening of the available drivers from Meteor.”
