Print Head Choice - Epson Piezo or Canon Thermal
Your first consideration on selecting a new inkjet printer needs to be a good understanding of what you will be printing. There are two types of inkjet print heads you will encounter. The Epson Piezo print and the Canon/Hp thermal print head. Each type of print head will perform differently with their own pro and cons. Here are some basic differences.
Epson Piezo – Best For Photo, Fine Art and Proofing
Whenever a dot is required a electric current is applied to the Piezo crystals which then forces a drop of ink out of the nozzle. Since the Epson print head can be controlled more precisely, it produces a sharper, grain – free print.
Canon Thermal – Best for Graphic Arts & Signage
Basicaly intense heat vaporizes the ink to create a bubble that expodes onto the print, producing two types of larger droplets.
