Xennia signs agreement with Trident for industrial & textile inkjet coatings

Thursday, May 27, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Xennia Technology Ltd, the world's leading industrial inkjet solutions provider, announced today its supply agreement with industrial inkjet printhead manufacturer Trident. Trident will supply printheads exclusively to Xennia for industrial textile decoration and finishing, as well as coating of industrial products.

"Trident's printhead technology is important for Xennia as it is extremely robust and enables printing of large drops that spread easily to form uniform layers, ideal for coatings in key industrial applications such as textiles, glass, floor and wall coverings, furniture laminates and decor papers," said Dr Alan Hudd, Managing Director of Xennia. "The Trident printhead is compatible with our comprehensive suite of XenJet modules, comprising print engines, fluid controllers, maintenance units and application & printing software, backed up by integration support packages that reduce development risk and cut time to market."

Xennia's stand at IPEX showcases these modules as a standalone display, as well as demonstrating their capabilities configured into two industrial printing systems designed for high reliability, efficiency and productivity in demanding production environments. The Xennia Viridian system includes a XenJet Auriga print engine running Trident printheads printing Xennia's XenInx Lazurite UV cure clear hardcoat, demonstrated as an overcoat to previously printed packaging and furniture laminate images.

"XenJet Auriga is the only inkjet print engine capable of running a variety of inkjet printheads, including the Trident head which is the ideal printhead for industrial coatings and other demanding applications, as a complement to other printheads designed for very high quality image printing," commented Dr Hudd. "Combined with the built-in printhead alignment, easy servicing and multiple configurations, XenJet Auriga provides OEMs and machine builders with an unprecedented degree of flexibility and control when designing systems. Auriga helps industry transform their inkjet ideas into production reality, improving responsiveness to customer demands, as well as increasing efficiency and productivity. Our agreement with Trident reinforces our position as the leading supplier of inkjet technology into industrial markets, and builds on many years of collaboration between our two companies. We look forward to the success flowing from the synergy of Trident's robust industrial printheads and Xennia's inkjet module and ink technology."

"Xennia has a well-earned reputation for developing technology specifically suited for the challenges of industrial applications," Trident's Business Development Manager, Steve Liker commented. "The combination of Trident's robust printhead technology and Xennia's high-performance inkjet modules and inks provides OEMs and end users with efficient and high quality performance even in harsh industrial environments."
