Meteor Inkjet announces support for High Laydown technology from Xaar

September 24, 2018

Meteor Inkjet, a leading independent supplier of electronics and software to drive industrial inkjet printheads, is pleased to announce support for Xaar’s High Laydown Technology for Xaar 2001+ and Xaar 1003 printheads.

High Laydown Technology addresses the need some industrial print applications have for extremely large volumes of fluid to be deposited at high speed, in a single pass. Examples include gloss, adhesive, lustre and metallic for ceramics; tactile effects including raised varnish, foil and Braille on labels, folding cartons and other packaging; white, black or flood coating; and high build UV 3D printing. Typical digital alternatives require multiple print bars or machines to run at low speeds to build up sufficient thickness and conventional techniques such as rotary screen can be economically unsuitable for low to medium run sizes. This makes High Laydown Technology an extremely attractive proposition.

Clive Ayling, Meteor’s managing director explains, “Fully accessing the benefits of High Laydown Technology requires a thorough understanding of the printhead waveform, image encoding, line speed compensation and the ink delivery system. Through our long-standing and close working relationship with Xaar, Meteor is proud to once again present a solution which allows our customers to easily take advantage of all that Xaar’s technology has to offer.”

“High Laydown Technology offers a number of significant benefits to tile manufacturers, label printers and others, particularly when combined with a high performance printhead such as the Xaar 2001+. We are delighted that Meteor has chosen to support this unique feature”, says Gerard Winn, senior product manager at Xaar.

For more information, visit Meteor’s stand (Hall C1, Stand 134) or Xaar’s stand (Hall C1, Stand 194) at Tecnargilla in Rimini from 24 – 28 September.
