New inkjet printheads featuring an all-nozzle independent drive system with a multi-line structure at a maximum drive frequency of 45kHz, approximately 3 times greater than that of existing superwide format inkjet printing printheads, require an ink that is capable of jetting a minimum of 13 picoliters in 8 drop sizes.

The Konica Minolta KM 512i and1024i are new breakthrough inkjet printheads for the development of single-pass inkjet printers capable of extreme high-speed printing.

The ink has to be designed from the ground up for viscosity and dynamic surface tension.
