Visitors to stand 710 at InPrint Munich 2019 this week will be able to learn more about Xaar’s Ultra High Viscosity capability across its printheads and the potential applications for this significant development in inkjet printing.

Most printheads can only jet materials with viscosities of up to 10-25 centipoise (cP). Thanks to Xaar’s unique TF Technology and innovative High Laydown Technology, fluids with significantly higher viscosities – up to 100 cP - can now be jetted.

Ultra High Viscosity jetting opens up a wide range of new inkjet capabilities and applications for OEMs and manufacturers using Xaar technology. The ability to lay down fluids with higher particle loading and particle sizes offers advantages such as an increased colour gamut, opacity and special effects. In addition, jetting higher molecular weight photopolymers for Advanced Manufacturing and 3D printing applications is made possible.

The announcement of Xaar’s Ultra High Viscosity capability follows October’s appointment of Dr John Mills as CEO at Xaar. The launch at InPrint is the first part of Xaar’s strategy to focus the printhead business on its Bulk platform, including its Xaar 2001+ printhead and High Laydown Technology.

John has a proven track record in growing technology-based companies. With a strong technical background, he was previously CEO at Inca Digital and before that, CEO at DataLase, COO at Plastic Logic as well as holding a number of senior positions at Domino Printing Sciences, including Director of Development.

I am excited to join the company as CEO and be leading the company on its next phase of development,” comments John. “Xaar has almost 30 years’ experience in inkjet, a significant IP portfolio and a strong technology roadmap. We believe that focusing the business on the sizeable market opportunities available will ensure that Xaar is best positioned to deliver the service, quality and products our global customers demand.

“The announcement of our Ultra High Viscosity capability across our printhead platform is therefore an exciting moment for the business and clearly demonstrates the continued relevance of our technology in leading inkjet printing across the latest market applications.”

As part of the recent business changes, Graham Tweedale has taken on the role of General Manager of Xaar’s printhead business unit, reporting into John. Graham has over 20 years’ experience across the Xaar business including most recently as COO and Director of Engineering.

Both Graham and John will work closely together to develop and support the new strategy proposed for the printhead business and will be attending the InPrint show on Xaar’s stand 710 to talk to customers and the industry about the latest developments.
