Ricoh announced the launch of two new industrial inkjet printheads: the  MH5421F and the  MH5421MF. Ricoh will start taking orders for both of these printheads from June 2017.
The Ricoh MH5421MF and MH5421F printheads were designed for both low viscosity (6 mPas) and medium viscosity fluids (11 mPas) respectively.
This structure enables continuous ink flow directly behind the nozzle, reducing the risk of jetting failure caused by either clogged ink or entrapped air bubbles, announced Ricoh.
In the industrial printing market for textiles, labels, packaging and ceramics tiles, there is an increasing need to meet a wide variety of customer needs such as smaller lot sizes and shorter delivery times. This requires the rapid digitisation of industrial printing in order to deliver greater flexibility and productivity, resulting in increased demand for printheads that deliver finer image quality as well as high productivity and greater reliability.
Each printhead has bonding technology for  ‘improved durability’. With these new features, the Ricoh MH5421 MF and MH5421F printheads offer compatibility with a wider range of fluids.
