Xaar, the world leader in inkjet technology, will showcase its complete portfolio of inkjet printheads and technologies at InPrint 2017 as it continues to move into new markets and applications (Stand 514, Hall A6). The company will be giving a series of product printing demonstrations and conference presentations, as well as showcasing a wide range of print samples. In addition, Xaar is preparing to make several exciting announcements at the show.
InPrint 2017 will highlight the significant achievements Xaar has made in expanding into a wider range of print applications as it works towards its “2020 goal” of £220m in annual global sales by 2020. This is being driven by a focus on customer needs, as shown by its launch of seven new products over the last 18 months – and the other announcements planned for the show are further evidence of Xaar’s progress.
Visitors to the Xaar stand will be able to see samples of Xaar’s recently launched High Laydown (HL) Technology for producing a variety of attractive, textured effects on labels, folding cartons and ceramic tiles, as well as industrial applications such as laminates. HL Technology is available in the Xaar 1003 and Xaar 2001+ printhead families.
Also on show will be the cylindrical object inkjet printer from EPS, Xaar’s business in the US, with two daily demonstrations at 10.30 hrs and 14.00 hrs. This new printer is a multi-colour, UV-LED, high-resolution printer that offers state-of-the-art digital printing technology, as well as excellent reliability delivered by Xaar 1003 printheads. The printheads incorporate Xaar’s unique TF Technology, whereby ink is recirculated within the printhead, directly past the back of the nozzle during drop ejection, at the highest flow rates in the industry. This ensures bubbles and particles are carried away, providing unrivalled reliability even in the harshest environments.
In addition, InPrint will feature a number of expert talks by members of the Xaar team: on the opportunities for inkjet within 3D Printing (Chris Noble, 3D Engineer, 11.30 hrs on the 15th); on functional reactive fluid disposition using Xaar technology (Simon Kirk, Senior Product Manager, 15.40 hrs on the 15th); on inkjet technology for the packaging industry (Jason Remnant, Product Line Manager, 10.30 hrs on the 16th); and on direct-to-container printing (Tim Scully, Vice President of Sales at EPS, 11.00 hrs on the 16th).
“InPrint is the leading show for the latest industrial printing techniques, so we are delighted to be attending this year’s event with our widest range of products ever,” says Mike Utley, Director of Marketing at Xaar. "Our focus is always on helping our customers get to market quickly with robust products that deliver real value to their own customers, as well as a good return on their development investment – and our stand at InPrint will reflect this.”
