PicoJetPicoJect Piezo Inkjet Printhead Design : PicoJet, Inc., a printhead design and manufacturing company founded by Hue Le, the former Director of Technology Development for Tektronix Printing and Imaging Division, today announced that it is ready to move into pilot production of a unique new piezo inkjet printhead design aimed at companies designing industrial inkjet systems. PicoJet is now looking for partners with whom it can scale up this technology to address diverse industrial printing and fluidjetting applications including biotech, electronics, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags and others. This innovative new printhead technology delivers a number of significant advantages.
PicoJect Piezo Inkjet Printhead DesignInkjet Printhead - Breakthrough
“Our new design avoids almost all of the problems that reduce printhead performance, making it a breakthrough for industrial printing and fluidjetting systems,” says Ray Veillet, vice president of business development at PicoJet. “In addition, our technology lends itself to automated manufacturing which can result in a very low price, perhaps one dollar or less, per nozzle.”

Inkjet Printhead - Metaltometal bond
The company’s new PJN256 printhead design uses a patented, ultrasonic bonding technology which creates a metaltometal bond allowing the printhead to be heated and to jet a wide range of very aggressive ink chemistries including UVcurable, oil, water, solvent, hot melt (wax) and other difficult to jet fluids. For example, in biotech applications it can act as a micro pump dispensing fluids in picoliter doses. In electronics applications it can be used to jet conductive fluids.

Inkjet Printhead - Significant advantages
This innovative new printhead technology delivers a number of significant advantages. Because neither epoxy nor ceramic are used in the ink channel, the printhead is not susceptible to nozzle clogging and has the ability to jet virtually any fluid with a high level of reliability. The design is also suitable for automated assembly for extremely costeffective manufacture and low unit pricing.

About PicoJet
PicoJet designs and manufactures stateoftheart piezoelectric dropondemand printheads. The company was founded in 1997 by Hue Le, to develop a printhead that could address the specific needs of a wide range of industrial printing applications in biotechnology, drug related research, electronics/conductive fluids, RFID tags and others. The company is now ready to partner with developers of industrial printing and jetting systems and to move into pilot production.
