Printos Debuts Head Suitable For Carpet Applications
Printos, the Netherlands — a producer of drop-on-demand, digital, solenoid valve-jet
printing/coating heads, business unit of Wood Dale, Ill.-based Videojet Technologies Inc. and
partner of Wools of New Zealand — has introduced the P16 digital printing solution for wool
According to Printos, the P16 multichannel printing/coating heads are suitable for applying various fluids onto a range of substrates, but the heads’ high flow capabilities make them particularly suitable for penetrating high-pile wool and nylon carpets. The company reports the technology offers high-speed operation, repeatable fluid dispensing and precision drop placement, in addition to full process control and monitoring and full-color image preparation.
New software, specialty inks, electronics and data path add to the flexibility of the P16 technology. Made mainly from stainless steel, the printing head is easy to maintain, according to the company.
The company has also developed the H8 head, which features eight P16 heads, for high-output coating and printing.
