​Xaar, the world’s leading inkjet technology specialist, is pleased to announce the launch of the Xaar 1002 GS12U printhead, its first larger drop printhead for UV applications. 

This new versatile and productive printhead extends the Xaar 1002 family of printheads, and gives the UV inkjet printing market a choice of printheads to suit specific applications. The greyscale Xaar 1002 GS12 jets drop volumes from 12-84pL, enabling a range of drop sizes to be printed with a single printhead. The large-drop capability of this flexible printhead, combined with Xaar’s patented TF Technology™ ink recirculation, makes it ideal for printing high-build spot varnishes and extra-opaque whites onto labels and direct-to-shape packaging (in both horizontal and vertical printing modes). In fact, no other printhead on the market today can match the high level of opacity and production reliability achieved by the Xaar 1002 GS12 in a single pass without resorting to multiple print bars.​
