New printhead enables digital decorative effects, coloured glazes and functional coatings and extends the digitalisation of ceramic tile manufacturing still further

​End-to-end digitalisation of ceramic tile manufacturing processes is set to become a reality with the new Xaar 001 piezoelectric drop-on-demand printhead by Xaar, the ceramics industry's leading inkjet technology specialist.

Featuring a selectable drop v​​olume of up to 200 nanolitres (nL) – 2,300 times larger than the Xaar 1002 GS12 –  the Xaar 001 jets digital glaz​es and other fluids such as heavily-pigmented inks with particles up to 25 µm with consistent precision and acc​uracy – laying down up to 700 g/m2 on a tile, compared to  10 -20 g/m2 for the decoration phase.
