Fujifilm Dimatix launches new Samba cartridge


Fujifilm Dimatix has released the Samba cartridge for use with the Dimatix Materials Printer (DMP). Based on silicon micro-electromechanical systems (Si-MEMS) design and manufacturing of the SambaR G3L printhead, the Samba cartridge is one of the most advanced technologies in inkjet printing, now available for use with all DMP-2800 model printers.

The new Samba cartridge brings the most modern features, capabilities and function to an already popular and versatile printer. It provides a native drop volume of 2.4 pl which has the potential to create ultra fine line widths from a single dot size of 30 μm. Accounting for smaller scale applications, the Samba cartridge offers use of a small capacity 1.5 ml cartridge, which requires considerably less fluid when screening fluid formulations for jettability and cured ink properties. To enable a full service solution from research and development applications to commercial production, the Samba cartridge offers the same internal jet design, jetting characteristics, and native drop volume as the Samba G3L printhead, which allows an easy transition from research and development applications to commercial production with the Samba G3L printhead.

The success of the DMP has been in expediting the fabrication of prototypes for a wide variety of inkjet applications including flexible electronic circuits, RFID antennas, 3D printed materials, and DNA arrays. The addition of the Samba cartridge for the DMP will enable developers to utilise this versatile printer for a smooth transition from small scale feasibility design and testing stages, to industrial scale manufacturing for commercialisation.

‘Today, we launch an innovative product that puts the large scale Samba G3L printhead jet design into a small cartridge form factor. In unifying the jet design of the DMP Samba cartridge with that of the high performance and scalable Samba G3L printhead, Fujifilm Dimatix provides a path from research and developement to full scale production manufacturing, which will be invaluable to the growth of functional printing,’ said Martin Schoeppler, president and CEO, Fujifilm Dimatix Inc. ‘We believe that the ability to analyse in-flight drop formation and jetting characteristics, joined with direct development on an industrial inkjet printhead jet design at a small scale, will facilitate research and development to transition to a production environment, and Fujifilm Dimatix will help customers achieve this by starting with the Samba family of products.’

The Samba cartridge is available to order now.
