    PicoJect Piezo Inkjet Printhead Design
    PicoJect Piezo Inkjet Printhead Design : PicoJet, Inc., a printhead
    design and manufacturing company founded by Hue Le, the former Director of
    Technology Development for Tektronix Printing and Imaging Division, today
    announced that it is ready to move into pilot production of a unique new piezo
    inkjet printhead design aimed at companies designing industrial inkjet systems.
    PicoJet is now looking for partners with whom it can scale up this technology to
    address diverse industrial printing and fluidjetting applications including
    biotech, electronics, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags and others.
    This innovative new printhead technology delivers a number of significant

    Inkjet Printhead – Breakthrough
    “Our new
    design avoids almost all of the problems that reduce printhead performance,
    making it a breakthrough for industrial printing and fluidjetting systems,” says
    Ray Veillet, vice president of business development at PicoJet. “In addition,
    our technology lends itself to automated manufacturing which can result in a
    very low price, perhaps one dollar or less, per nozzle.”

    Printhead – Metaltometal bond

    The company’s new PJN256 printhead design
    uses a patented, ultrasonic bonding technology which creates a metaltometal bond
    allowing the printhead to be heated and to jet a wide range of very aggressive
    ink chemistries including UVcurable, oil, water, solvent, hot melt (wax) and
    other difficult to jet fluids. For example, in biotech applications it can act
    as a micro pump dispensing fluids in picoliter doses. In electronics
    applications it can be used to jet conductive fluids.

    Printhead – Significant advantages

    This innovative new printhead
    technology delivers a number of significant advantages. Because neither epoxy
    nor ceramic are used in the ink channel, the printhead is not susceptible to
    nozzle clogging and has the ability to jet virtually any fluid with a high level
    of reliability. The design is also suitable for automated assembly for extremely
    costeffective manufacture and low unit pricing.

    About PicoJet

    PicoJet designs and manufactures stateoftheart piezoelectric dropondemand
    printheads. The company was founded in 1997 by Hue Le, to develop a printhead
    that could address the specific needs of a wide range of industrial printing
    applications in biotechnology, drug related research, electronics/conductive
    fluids, RFID tags and others. The company is now ready to partner with
    developers of industrial printing and jetting systems and to move into pilot
