High density nozzles and longer print heads
Not only does more nozzles mean faster print times, it also means improvement in print quality. When nozzles are widely spaced, the pitch (or nozzle density) is low and the print head will need to make a number of passes to achieve high image
quality. When the nozzles are closely packed with a high density, fewer passes are required to achieve higher resolution.
The fourth component in generating high quality photo prints at a high speed is a long print head. With a longer print head, fewer passes are required to complete a page. So the combination of nozzles being manufactured in an extremely small and
precise form, super-small ink droplets, a high nozzle density generating higher resolution in fewer passes, and a long FINE print head is ideal for high speed, quality prints.
The quality and speed delivered by FINE print heads are one component of the Canon Photo Triangle. Next month we take a look at Genuine Canon Inks.
