Epson micro Piezo - Inkjet printer|
As inkjet systems are being introduced more widely in commercial and industrial applications, much value is being placed on the potential of Epson's Micro Piezo technology, which consists of the core inkjet system components - the inkjet print head and the ink itself. Micro Piezo technology is an ink firing system for inkjet printers. It is an original Epson technology whereby an electric signal is sent to the piezo elements placed above each nozzle on the print head, and ink droplets are fired according to the force generated by the change in shape of these elements. It allows precise control of the piezo elements, which in turn means precise control of ink droplet size and fantastic print quality.
