​​​​​​​Reach higher levels of performance in graphics with the Xaar 501 printhead.

The Xaar 501 printhead delivers excellent reliability, high production up-time and exceptional print quality whether printing large outdoor banners or indoor point-of-sale material.

  • The unique PrecisionPlus architecture of the Xaar 501 optimises the actuator performance giving more uniform drop formation and velocity across the print swathe and therefore exceptional print quality at longer throw distances.

  • The ability to print high viscosity or heavily pigmented inks such as white becomes a practical reality with TF Technology® in Pulsed mode.

  • Print service providers will appreciate the even, flat tints and sharp text achievable with the Xaar 501

  • OEMs will appreciate the remarkably uniform print swathe allowing printheads to be mounted together easily
