Epson launched new printhead I1600-A1 --Suitable for DTF printer market
Recently, Epson officially launched a new print head-I1600-A1, it is a cost-effective 1.33inch-wide MEMs head series providing high productivity and high image quality with 600dpi（2 row） high-density resolution. This print head is suitable for water-based inks .Once this print head was born, it played a vital role in the existing DTF printer field.
As we all know, F1080 print head and i3200-A1 print head are the print heads used by mainstream DTF printers on the market. But they each have their pros and cons. As an entry-level print head, the F1080 head is cheap, but its service life is not long, and its accuracy is relatively low, so it is only suitable for small-format printing, usually used for printers with a printing width of 30cm or less. As a higher-level print head, I3200-A1 has high printing accuracy, relatively long life, and fast printing speed, but the price is high, and it is usually suitable for printers with a width of 60cm and above. The price of I1600-A1 is between I3200-A1 and F1080, and the physical printing accuracy and lifespan are the same as I3200-A1, which undoubtedly adds a lot of vitality to this market.
