Xaar is celebrating the 20th birthday of its ever popular Xaar 128 printhead. Initially conceptualised for use in desktop fax machines, in fact, at launch the Xaar 128 proved to be better suited to other sectors due to its combination of reliability, ease of integration, speed and quality of print. This ensured it quickly became a firm favourite in the coding and marking and wide-format graphics markets.

Xaar hosted members of the NMI including Diodes, Ultra CEMS, SPTS Technologies and Newport Wafer Fab at its workshop on ‘Learning and Development for Manufacturing Flexibility’ at Xaar’s Huntingdon site on 18th June. The interactive session highlighted the importance of focusing on people in the overall process, with discussion groups working to define key learning points for the implementation of Manufacturing Flexibility initiatives.

A technology collaboration between SPGPrints and Xaar will be showcased to a select group of visitors at ITMA 2019. The invitation-only event on the SPGPrints stand (H3-B203) will focus on a technical demonstration of the latest innovations in single pass dye-sublimation printing, giving guests a sneak preview of the new Xaar 5601 printhead together with the waterborne sublimation inks that SPGPrints created specifically for this printhead.

The versatility and performance of the Xaar 1201 printhead was showcased in the new hybrid printer from d.gen, launched at FESPA Munich, Europe’s largest speciality print exhibition, held between 14th to 17th May.

Xaar, a world-leader in industrial inkjet printing, will introduce the Xaar 5601 printhead to the textiles market at ITMA 2019 in Barcelona from 20 to 26th June. Displaying on stand C205 in Hall H3 as part of Xaar’s range of printhead solutions for the textile sector, together with a variety of stunning textile samples, the Xaar 5601 will also be incorporated in a technology demonstration on the stand of a leading digital textile printer manufacturer – further details will be announced this month.

The Xaar 1201 printhead is proving instrumental in helping Nottingham-based research organisation, Added Scientific, establish the suitability of inkjet printing in the manufacture of personalised pharmaceutical pills, where dosages could be tailored to individuals on an industrial scale.

The spotlight is on the Xaar 1003 printhead at this year’s Print China exhibition in Guandong from 9th – 13th April as COASO Technology Co, Ltd (previously known as Kingstar) showcases three digital printers which use the Xaar 1003 on booth 1-1203.

The versatility and performance of the Xaar 1201 printhead is ensuring that the latest Pixeljet printer from Monotech Systems is delivering the speed and precision for graphics and wide-format media printing.

The versatility of the Xaar 1201 printhead was evident with orders for over 120 Xaar 1201-based printers being taken at two of the leading signage and graphics exhibitions held in China this month – DPES Huaqiao 2019 Print Expo and the 27th Shanghai Ad & Sign Expo (APPPEXPO).

Xaar’s 1201 printhead has debuted in a range of new printer launches at two exhibitions in China – the DPES Huaqiao 2019 Print Expo at Huaqiao International Expo Center from March 3rd to 7th and the 27th Shanghai Ad & Sign Expo (APPPEXPO) at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) from March 5th to 8th. At both shows, a number of OEMs are displaying their Xaar 1201 based printers demonstrating a wide range of applications including UV flatbed, UV roll-to-roll, eco-solvent and textile printing.

Xaar has celebrated the ground-breaking technologies of its high performance Xaar 5601 printhead in a special event for over 300 of its UK staff. The Xaar 5601, based on the Xaar’s silicon MEMS thin film platform, is the culmination of over eight years of Research & Development. The technology platform represents a major step forward in digital inkjet printing and has created a foundation for Xaar’s thin film printheads of the future.
