The printhead is a very delicate component of large format eco-solvent and solvent-based printers. It is the core component of a printer and without a printhead, a printer will not be a printer.
DX7 has a native resolution of 1440 dpi, 540 nozzles arranged in 6 lines of 90 nozzles. It has a firing frequency of 8kHz, a minimum droplet size of 1.5 picolitres, and a maximum droplet size of 21 picolitres.
When compared to a DX5 printhead, DX7 offers a cheaper cost but a lower lifespan. For a DX5, it can reach a lifespan of 2-3 years while DX7 can reach a lifespan of 9 months – 1 year.
The DX7 has different versions: locked or unlocked, water-based or oil-based, compatibility with inks (eco-solvent, sublimation ink, UV ink, or water-based inks).
