Xaar – New technology platform at drupa

The Xaar 1003 family of printheads

UK • The provider of industrial inkjet technology, will present its range of premium inkjet printheads and products, announce a number of new developments and launch a new thin film silicon MEMS technology platform at drupa. Among the highlight are the Print Bar System, the 501 printhead and the new 1003 printhead (Hall 6 Stand C 05).

The Xaar 1003 family of printheads incorporate the TF technology, the latest generation of the 100x series of printheads. Depending on fluid type and application, it is said that this product achieves the longest maintenance-free production runs in the industry. The Xaar Print Bar System adds single-pass inkjet capability to analogue web presses. Launched at Labelexpo last year, it allows users to take advantage of the benefits of digital printing economically to deliver more creativity to the users. This is a versatile solution ideal for personalised, variable data, special effects and short-run printing for a range of applications, including labels and packaging, and saves the considerable cost and time associated with analogue production methods.

​​​​​​​The Xaar 501 printhead delivers reliability, high production up-time and exceptional print quality. It incorporates the PrecisionPlus architecture which optimises the printhead actuator performance to give more uniform drop formation across the print swathe and, therefore, high print quality.
