Meteor adds support for Epson I3200 PrecisionCore printheads
Cambridge, UK, 25 Feb 2021
Meteor Inkjet Ltd, leading supplier of electronics, software, tools and services for industrial inkjet, further expands its product portfolio with the introduction of a set of products for Epson’s I3200 range of PrecisionCore printheads. These products join Meteor’s previously launched solutions for Epson S3200, S1600 and S800 printheads.
Epson PrecisionCore printheads embody technology that enables outstanding image quality, productivity, durability and printhead scalability. With a compact form factor accommodating four separate colours at 600dpi, the I3200 is easy to carriage-mount, making it ideal for low-cost, multi-pass printers such as those used in direct-to-garment textile printing. The head is also attractive in single-pass applications requiring ultra-low cost without sacrificing print resolution, including on-demand, colour book printing and direct-to-shape product personalisation. Compatible with water-based, UV or eco-solvent inks, the heads can also be used in any number of functional inkjet applications.
Meteor’s new PDS-3EI3200Z Print Driver Stack (PDS) for the I3200 is designed with space and cost efficiency at its heart. Supporting three printheads per PDS, the electronics are easily scalable to systems of any size and, coupled with Meteor’s comprehensive software, OEMs can significantly reduce the effort and risk associated with the design and delivery of superior industrial inkjet printers. Moreover, Meteor’s DropWatching Systems and printhead waveform development services are essential tools to accelerate time to market for new inkjet applications.
Jonathan Wilson, Meteor’s sales director, comments, “Through successful cooperation with Epson, Meteor is proud to present a solution which allows our mutual customers to take advantage of all the I3200 has to offer. Meteor’s electronics and software provide the fastest and easiest way for OEMs to unlock the potential of these printheads.”
Paddy O’Hara, business development manager, Epson Europe adds, “At Epson we work with market leading partners to provide the printhead driver solutions that our OEM customers demand. With the introduction of Meteor’s system for driving the I3200 series of printheads, our customers will have access to extremely versatile hardware and software, allowing them to develop printers for a wide range of applications.”
