With 720 dpi resolution, the Xaar 2001+ sets a new print quality standard in digital ceramic decoration, so you can create tiles that stand out against the competition.

The Xaar 2001+ printhead family delivers reliable results with maximum production uptime, using unique technology to reduce interruptions for maintenance:

  • TF Technology continually recirculates ink past the back of each nozzle at a high rate during drop ejection, so air bubbles and unwanted particles are carried away
  • XaarGuard minimizes ink build-up on the nozzle plate, reducing maintenance to once per shift or less
  • Tuned Actuator Manufacturing enables uniform print quality across all printheads in a print bar, making replacing printheads and balancing print bars easier and quicker
  • XaarSmart reports ink temperatures and printhead status in real-time so that printer performance can be automatically adjusted to deliver consistent print quality throughout the production run.

With unique High Laydown Technology, the Xaar 2001+ delivers unprecedented ink discharge rates, so you can create outstanding decoration effects, ideal for use with gloss, adhesive, lustre and metallic, for example.
