Over the last 10 years, ceramic tile manufacturers have extensively adopted digital inkjet technology, enabling them to replicate natural materials and produce highly creative and textured tiles, as well as larger and thinner tiles.

The benefits of digital inkjet printing includes:

  • High quality print finish:a high quality, fine finish can be created with digital printing to produce tiles that are virtually indistinguishable from natural materials.
  • Faster set-up & reduced risk of tile breakage: by eliminating roller sleeves there is no physical changeover time between images; and with set-up handled by print control software, production downtime and waste are reduced, making it simpler to print short runs, including single tiles. The non-contact nature of digital inkjet printing makes breakages very rare, reducing waste and material costs.
  • Print on textured tiles: digital inkjet printheads can work on textured surfaces​. Combining digital inkjet printing of colour with texture produces more realistic representations of natural materials, enhancing the value of the tiles. The printheads also decorate right to the edge of a tile, eliminating white edges and creating a seamless, natural look.

Xaar’s ceramics printhead portfolio benefits from an unbeaten combination of technologies, which deliver industrial reliability, outstanding print quality and maximum uptime.

TF Technology ink recirculation and Hybrid Side-Shooter architecture, delivers industrial reliability, particularly when using heavily pigmented and high viscosity fluids. The Xaar 1003, Xaar 2001 and Xaar 2001+ printhead families also incorporate XaarGuard, which ensures the longest maintenance-free production runs in the industry – typically once per shift or less.
