RPSA Supports Customer Digital Conversion Needs: High Viscous Fluids

June 15, 2020

If you are seeking to take advantage of the benefits of digital printing and use high viscous fluids, please contact us today by emailing us at digitalsolution@rpsa.ricoh.com

Digital printing has been transforming multiple industries by lowering material costs, reducing waste, shortening set-up times and enabling selective material placement. RPSA has been designing and manufacturing stainless steel piezo industrial printheads for over forty years and has evolved its technology and know-how to meet the ever-expanding performance requirements of industrial digital application.

RPSA offers larger native drop volume printheads, i.e., 15 pL, 27 pL & 40 pL, to achieve maximum fluid coverage. RPSA has also incorporated increased viscosity and temperature fluid handling capabilities; RPSA currently offers 16 cP and 80 deg. c printheads. Adding flow-through capability has further expanded the scope of RPSA’s printhead fluid handling and jetting performance.

RPSA is now focusing on increasing its viscosity and temperature capabilities to support additional conversions of analog-to-digital processes. RPSA is seeking to engage with companies with high viscous fluids and that are also motivated to benefit from the advantages of the digital conversion of their process.
We look forward to supporting your digital conversion needs.

I am pleased to announce that Anajet, Inc., a Direct-To-Garment (DTG) printing company and RPSA’s wholly-owned subsidiary, located in Tustin, California, will be merged into RPSA, effective June 1, 2020 and on that date a “Direct-To-Garment Division” will be established at RPSA.

Ricoh, Ltd., RPSA’s parent company in Japan, is in the process of reorganizing its North America DTG business.
