Xaar and Global Inkjet Systems collaborate on systems components for the Xaar 5601
Cambridge: 2 June 2016 ‒ Xaar plc, the leader in industrial inkjet technology, is delighted to announce its collaboration with Global Inkjet Systems (GIS) to deliver and sell drive electronics and ink supply systems optimised for the Xaar 5601 family of printheads, launched at drupa today.
Xaar and GIS have worked closely together on the development, testing and production of these industrial standard systems components. Optimised for the Xaar 5601 printhead family, the Head Management Card (HMC) and ink supply system will unlock the full capabilities of the Xaar 5601 and are a value-add for OEMs, freeing them up from time-consuming in-house developments and enabling a quicker time-to-market.
"During the development phase of the Xaar 5601 printhead family we evaluated a number of potential companies to partner with for the systems components", says Ramon Borrell, Chief Technology Officer at Xaar. "We chose GIS because it has a successful track record in systems components supply and also provides high levels of technical expertise".
"We are proud to have been selected by Xaar to collaborate with their team on this project" said Nick Geddes, CEO at GIS. "GIS's next generation of the Head Management Card is perfectly suited to the high performance capabilities of the Xaar 5601. We are excited about the future potential of this technology."
The Head Management Card and ink supply system for the Xaar 5601 are available from both Xaar and Global Inkjet Systems.
