Memjet Waterfall Printhead Technology® achieves high-speed color printing at low costs


Memjet color printheads use what we call “waterfall” technology. Simply put, each printhead fires millions of ink drops per second. It’s more energy efficient. It’s more mechanically sound. The Memjet printhead is a radical shift in printhead design.

Unique Design, Unique Value

Memjet pieceMemjet Waterfall Printhead Technology® achieves high-speed color printing at low costs as a single page-wide solution for the office or configured in multiples (and multiple ways) to achieve entirely new ways to print in industrial and commercial markets. The printhead requires minimal warm-up time and prints in one pass without scanning back and forth. While dramatically improving performance, this fixed-head architecture also reduces the noise, vibration, mechanical complexity and drop-firing complexity associated with traditional inkjet architectures.

Memjet printheads are designed as a long-life, customer-replaceable component, allowing end-users to keep their printers running at peak performance year after year while protecting their investment.

For maximum scalability, the size of the printhead enables a range of applications from a variety of different sized printers. Each printhead packs 70,400 nozzles into a silicon structure that delivers 1,600 dpi native print quality that is more dense and cost-efficient than other leading inkjet Integrated Circuit designs.

Put it all together and Memjet printheads represent a clear departure from existing inkjet, laser and LED architectures and offer a compelling choice for printing and imaging customers.
