The figure shows the arrangement of the nozzle rows of a simple scanning machine.

The nozzle rows are not arranged in mirror image in favor of simpler hosing of the ink supply.

The nozzle rows are arranged in such a way that the resulting print resolution is quadrupled by the rows standing one inside the other.

Advantages and disadvantages result from the method shown.

Since the nozzle arrangement achieves a desired output resolution almost or completely, little or no interleaving is possible.

This results in fewer necessary printing movements, but also takes away the possibility of increasing quality by interleaving.
