1,000 Page Per Minute Printer

| Printers & Scanners News | Posted: Sep 26, 2006 1:12 am

Do you often find yourself thinking our l33t mainstream printers of today are still a bit on the slow side? Well that could very well change in the not too distant future. The Dailytech have scooped up some hot details about a pair of enginners in Israel who've published their research in a recent edition of the Applied Physics Letters, which details an ink jet print head capable of printing ~1000 pages per minute!!

 

Pretty jaw-dropping stuff, and apparently we could see the tech implemented in printers of no more then 2 yrs away.

 


Researchers Moshe Einat and Nissim Einat have designed a print head called JeTrix that is conceptually similar to that of a LCD monitor. The printer head features micro-reservoirs of ink, and each reservoir is responsible for an element on the page, just like how each pixel is represented on an LCD monitor. Traditional ink-jet heads need to move back and forth across paper, but this new concept enlarges the print head to the cover the entire sheet. This allows a page to be printed in just one process, which explains the remarkable printing speed.
