The Printer’s Heart Beats Quality

4 Drop‐on‐demand micro piezo heads are at the heart of the VJ-404GT’s stunning performance. The four 384-nozzle heads (each 2 lines of 192 nozzles) jet the 4 colours ink. Whereas one nozzle row of the outside print heads delivers yellow and the other nozzle row jets the magenta colour, one of inner print heads take care of jetting the black ink, and the other inner print head jets the cyan ink.
