A novel drop on demand, Piezo based inkjet printhead, was developed in Scitex Corporation in the last 7 Years.In the last 7 years, a novel inkjet printhead was developed in Scityex Corporation. The printhead is a Drop on demand, Piezo based inkjet. It is built around a core of sintered stainless steel porous material that provides a number of advantages, among them:• Very high ejection frequencies with low cross-talk• Structural Simplicity and hence reliable and low cost printhead,• Very effective ink filteration.• Building materials tolerant to a wide range of ink formulations.These features make the new printhead very attractive to Industrial applications.This paper describes the printhead structure in detail, summerizes the main jetting characteristics and discusses possible printheads arrangements for different applications.
