​​​​​​The Xaar Print Bar System is a high-precision engineered complete system which adds single-pass digital inkjet UV capability to roll-to-roll or sheet-fed presses and provides print service providers with the benefits of digital printing easily and economically. In addition, the unrivalled reliability and exceptional print quality delivered by the Xaar 1002’s TF Technology make this print bar stand out from anything else on the market.

Using the industrially-proven Xaar 1002 family of printheads, the Xaar Print Bar System prints fine reverse text, flawless barcodes, totally uniform solid areas, and high build effects through a multitude of Xaar 1002 printhead and approved ink combinations. This is ideal for short run, customised and variable data labels, vouchers, forms and packaging; spot varnish to make print stand out from the crowd; opaque white as an alternative to rotary screen or flexo whites; adhesives for cold-foil blocking; and even to print the metallic inks.
