Memjet: ink-on with the world's fastest printer

Memjet: ink-on with the world's fastest printer

Sure the world of digital printing might not catch many people's eye, but there's something otherworldly about just how fast this thing spits out pages. Memjet's office reference printer is fast. How fast? 60 pages a minute, fast. Print quality looks fine at 1600 dots per inch and reportedly half the cost of ownership of other color printers. The trick behind the speed are the 70,000 nozzles firing more than 700 million drops of ink per second that print the page in one pass rather than the several passes of traditional inkjets -- or enough for a page a second. We're pretty sure if we had one of these at our disposal we'd be throwing as much material as we could at it just to watch the magic on the output side.
