Xaar Midas Ink Supply System

Key benefits

  • Ease of integration is a key advantage of the Xaar Midas Ink Supply System. It is compact and light, easy to mount and has a small ink tank capacity.
  • This is a flexible solution with a modular design which makes it suitable for a range of applications; it can run multiple printheads out of the box as standard.
  • Available in three variants, the Xaar Midas Ink Supply System is suitable for single or multiple printhead configurations. In addition, it is fully compatible with the Xaar 501, Xaar 502, Xaar 1003 family, Xaar 2001 and Xaar 2001+ printheads – all of which incorporate Xaar’s unique TF Technology ink recirculation.

Compact, reliable and scalable industrial fluid control solution

The new Xaar Midas Ink Supply System is a compact fluid supply system for OEMs looking for a fast time-to-market and therefore low development costs. Robust and easy to integrate, it is ideal for full production as well as prototype systems.

​​For OEMs looking for a robust ink supply system, the Xaar Midas incorporates a number of useful design features:

  • An integrated printhead shut-off valve and failsafe chamber with automatic shutdown protects against ink loss during power failure
  • There is no need for external air sources or vacuum pumps
  • Changing fluids in under 30 minutes is enabled via the software
  • Ink temperature can be controlled up to 65.C and is recirculated within the angled tank to avoid settling, which is particularly useful for heavily pigmented inks
  • Consistent high print quality in single-pass and scanning modes is ensured by the integrated hydraulic meniscus measurement system. The system automatically compensates the meniscus pressure within the printhead as fluid levels inside the integrated fluid reservoir change during usage.
Options available for the Xaar Midas 450
  • Xaar Midas fluid degasser unit: an optional degas vacuum source is available for use with a customer supplied degas matrix
  • Xaar Midas remote heater top-up unit: the remote inline heater helps integrating into systems where higher fluid temperatures are required or longer pipework necessary
  • Xaar Midas remote pressure: the Xaar Midas remote pressure management manifold is ideal for integrating management manifold into systems where higher fluid temperatures are required or longer pipework is necessary and compensates for impedance losses due to filters and degassers
  • Xaar Midas communication pack: USB to RS422 communication gateway adapter.
Options available for the Xaar Midas 950 C/X
  • Xaar Midas fluid degasser unit: an optional degas vacuum source is available for use with a customer supplied degas matrix
  • Xaar Midas remote heater top-up unit: the remote inline heater helps integrating into systems where higher fluid temperatures are required or longer pipework necessary
  • Xaar Midas communication pack: USB to RS422 communication gateway adapter
  • Xaar Midas 950 line connection: set of one failsafe and one de-airing solenoids.

The Xaar Midas 450 offers up to 450 ml/min recirculation flow rates needing only a 60 ml ink reservoir. This is ideal for advanced manufacturing, direct-to-shape and other applications jetting expensive fluids.

The Xaar Midas 950C and 950X have a fluid flow rate of up to 950 ml/min with a 150 ml ink reservoir, targeting high volume and high throughput printing.
