An archival inkJet printer that prints inkjet-quality ink at an extremely high resolution is now available to the public in India.
The new machine is the first of its kind, as it is the only one with a 3D printer capable of printing in the inkjet format.
The archival print is also available in the form of a 3d printed case for home use.
“This new 3D-printing printer has great potential for high-quality and low-cost printing,” said Arvind Shukla, co-founder and managing director of Inkjet 3Ds, which makes the inkJet.
“We will be able to print a variety of products, from jewelry to medical supplies, as well as books, posters, etc.”
The company says the printer can print any ink at up to 100 microns per inch, and that it can print the same ink at high resolution up to 300 microns.
It has already printed a variety and sizes of products ranging from wedding invitations to greeting cards, with many smaller orders coming soon.
The inkJet has a single printhead and a single bed, making it easy to stack multiple prints on top.
The print head has a 3-axis servo-driven motor and a 1.5-millimeter nozzle, while the bed is powered by a 5-millimetre servo motor.
The print head also comes with a range of different functions, including laser cutting, filtration, UV-absorbing ink, and more.
“We are proud of the quality of the 3D print, which we call the Inkjet Print,” said Shukala.
“It can print up to 150 microns of ink at a resolution of up to 250 microns.”
Shukla says the print head can print a wide range of products from wedding and greeting cards to medical instruments, and he hopes to expand to other print sizes soon.
“I have already printed the entire wedding invitation, including a photo of the bride and groom.
We will soon be printing wedding invitations, including the bride’s name, groom’s name and a picture of their baby,” he said.
The new printer is the latest addition to the company’s portfolio of products that include an inkjet laser printer, a 3DM printer, and a 3DS Printer, which can print objects that look and feel like real 3D models.
Inkjet has also recently partnered with a Japanese printer to print digital artworks.
“The new 3d printing is the perfect complement to our portfolio of 3D printers,” Shukana said.
“The Inkjet is a powerful tool that can print even more durable objects.”
Shakla has been a printer at the company for about three years, and is currently on a three-month tour in India, where he will be testing and manufacturing the new printer.
“During this three-week trip, we will be printing inkjet products from scratch.
We have been working on the ink jet print for the past few months, and have been extremely pleased with the final product,” he added.
Shukala is also working on several other inkjet printers, including an inkJet Laser printer, which is currently in the testing phase.
