The new press delivers photo-realistic quality thanks to its new print heads which provide a native resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi (single pass) with 3 grayscale outputs for an exceptional quality level, varying the drop size from 1,5 picoliters (the smallest size in the market) up to 3.5 picoliters.

An additional advantage is the print carriage which has been designed to accommodate different print heads: 1200×1200, 600×600 (like NoeCha1) or bi-color.
