HP unveils new printhead technology
By Rodrigo Chia on July 12, 2005 - 12:43 PM


HP has unveiled its first products featuring an inkjet technology that promises a faster development cycle and consequent lower cost (up to 50%). The new printhead components are fabricated as a single unit through a photolitographic process instead of being welded togheter in postproduction. This allows the placement of 3,900 nozzles or even more on a single printhead. The first product to sport the technology will be the Photosmart 8250. Equipped with six Vivera ink cartridges, it will print 4x6-inch prints in as little as 14 seconds. The 8250 will be available this month for USD 199. It will be followed this fall by the Photosmart 3000 All-In-One series.
