Grey Scale vs. Binary Print Heads

BINARY

Single
drop
size ejected
from head.

Can
simulate grey scale
with multiple
passes.

Piezo

VARIABLE DROP

Can produce different size
drops, but only one size per
image, these heads are not
capable of dynamic drop
volume changes.

VARIABLE

GRAYSCALE

Print
head capable of
ejecting different size

dynamically within the
same image.

Benefits of Grayscale…


Larger color gamut over QS
(11%+ like GS over QS)


An all 12pL drop mode available (true 1000 dpi) with
higher ink usage (like Durst P10 has)


Either reduce ink usage or best case,
reduce ink and go faster


Smoother transitions and gray tones over
binary or single drop


Looks like (apparent) resolution of 1200 dpi


Grayscale with LC, LM, gives us
appearance of more than 4 levels


like native 6pL drop printers

Grainy Better Best

4C 6C Grayscale


Thinner ink film in grayscale modes only
(15
-
25% less ink usage on average)
