A Printing Paradigm Shift

Micro TFP Print Chip

At the heart of PrecisionCore is the PrecisionCore MicroTFP print chip. This print chip is modular and can be arrayed in various printhead configurations.

Outstanding Speed and Output Quality

  • Based on the thin film piezo (TFP) technology that Epson has been using in commercial large-format printers, the MicroTFP PrecisionCore print chip offers vastly improved basic performance compared to conventional piezo print heads, including faster speed and more accurate dot placement.
  • The thin film piezo actuators, which act as pumps that fire droplets of ink, are just 1 micron thick. PrecisionCore print heads deliver professional output quality at high speed by precisely controlling the droplet shape and volume at a rate up to 50,000 times a second per nozzle.
  • Printing speed was further accelerated by increasing the length of the nozzle plate (and thus the length of the nozzle line) from 1 inch to 1.33 inches.

Expanding Potential

  • Modular PrecisionCore chips can be combined in different ways to build a variety of print heads, from lineheads for industrial presses to serial print heads for desktop printers.
  • The technology is still evolving. PrecisionCore
    promises to be an enduring inkjet technology platform,
    and its potential is only just starting to be tapped.
