FUJIFILM Dimatix Intros SKYFIRE SF600 Printhead at drupa 2024

FUJIFILM Dimatix, Inc., a leading global manufacturer and supplier of piezoelectric, drop-on-demand industrial inkjet printheads, announced the introduction of its new FUJIFILM Dimatix SKYFIRE SF600 inkjet printhead. The FUJIFILM Dimatix SKYFIRE SF600 inkjet printhead leverages FUJIFILM Dimatix’ proprietary piezoelectric inkjet technology based on proven silicon Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems (Si-MEMS) fabrication techniques. This new printhead reflects the company’s ongoing commitment to the transition from analog to digital inkjet printing and exploration of emerging markets and applications.

“Our customers require printheads that can withstand a wide variety of inks and print at high speeds while offering high quality and durability. The unique design features of the FUJIFILM Dimatix SKYFIRE SF600 underscore the company’s continued commitment to innovation, and provide reliable, high-quality sustained printing to enhance productivity in a wide range of demanding applications,” says Steve Billow, President & CEO at FUJIFILM Dimatix, Inc. “We’re looking forward to meeting with industry leaders at drupa to showcase our competitive line of inkjet printheads.”

The FUJIFILM Dimatix SKYFIRE SF600 printhead is the next generation product in the company’s portfolio. At this year’s drupa, visitors can access FUJIFILM at Hall 8B / A02 – A02-6, where the company’s inkjet technologies are on display showcasing their key tenets – Performance, Productivity, Durability, and Support.


The FUJIFILM Dimatix SKYFIRE SF600 printhead delivers 600 dpi resolution with drop size range of 5-25 pl and nozzle layout that enables high throw distance to meet a broad range of applications. To ensure consistent output, the SKYFIRE SF600 is equipped with an integrated trimming heater and temperature sensor as well as REDIJET coating for optimal use of aqueous and UV inks. Rounding up these features is top and tail alignment for compact integration and improved printhead to printhead accuracy.


The SKYFIRE SF600 printhead incorporates high-speed jet design, with REDIJET elements including noise dampening technology and dual recirculation for reliable jetting at high speeds. The printhead can jet 11 grams of ink per square metre per colour at over 130 metres per minute with four levels of grayscale. OEMs benefit from versadrop open waveform editing capability. For decades, this capability has enabled developers to tune printhead performance to their specific application.


The SF600 printhead takes advantage of FUJIFILM Dimatix’ proprietary sputtered PZT rated for trillions of actuations. It is designed with REDIJET coating that enables it to reliably jet a range of aqueous solvent, oil, and UV curable types common in large single-pass and scanning printing systems.


FUJIFILM Dimatix has a dedicated worldwide field organization which offers exceptional support to ensure successful customer product development. FUJIFILM Dimatix has partnered with several OEMs as early adopters across multiple industry segments that are testing and deploying the FUJIFILM Dimatix SKYFIRE SF600 printhead in their solutions. One of these early adopters is Shenzhen KINGT Technology Co., Ltd (KINGT), a digital inkjet printing solution provider using the FUJIFILM SKYFIRE SF600 inkjet printhead in its newly introduced KGT-2513-Hi flatbed printer.

At their drupa 2024 booth (Hall 8A / B03), KINGT is displaying several products and samples printed using FUJIFILM Dimatix printheads including FUJIFILM Dimatix Samba based label printers, the Label Press 330s and 510, FUJIFILM Dimatix STARFIRE based décor printer, and the FUJIFILM Dimatix SKYFIRE based flatbed printer, the KGT-2513-Hi.
