Whether printing high quality text, data and bar codes to secondary packaging or printing directly onto shaped products or primary packaging, this versatile printhead provides industrial reliability for high production up-time.

  • The unique PrecisionPlus architecture of the Xaar 502 optimises the actuator performance giving more uniform drop formation and velocity across the print swathe and therefore exceptional print quality at longer throw distances.

  • Printers now have the ability to print at up to 6 greyscale levels, enabling them to target Coding & Marking applications with true greyscale capability.

  • A remarkably uniform print swathe allows printheads to be mounted easily together, allowing for trouble-free and easy integration for a fast time-to-market.
