Company Profile (Trident Industrial Ink Jet)

Trident Industrial Ink Jet logo
Trident is a leader in the development and manufacture of both industrial piezoelectric ink jet printheads and ink jet inks. Trident was one of the pioneers of ink jet in the early 1980's jetting both liquid inks and hot melt inks. Today, Trident products are used in a variety of applications that require rugged, inert, stainless steel printheads for printing or accurately dispensing fluids reliably and frequently. Applications include digital patterned printing with etchants, dopants, metallic conductive inks and conductive fluids. Trident's inert printheads are unique in their ability to be disassembled, cleaned and reassembled enabling long life and high degree of return on investment.
Trident printheads are marketed worldwide through original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the flat panel display manufacturing, printable electronics, wide format printing, precision coating markets. OEMs integrate Trident printheads into computer-controlled, application-specific products or systems which are then sold to end users.
Trident's development, manufacturing and administrative headquarters is located in Brookfield, Connecticut, USA (100 km from New York City). The company also has regional offices in Tokyo and Dublin, Ireland.
