Press release from the issuing company

Cambridge – Xaar plc, the leader in industrial inkjet technology, is delighted to announce that Guangzhou Xucheng Electronic Technology Ltd “Xucheng” is the first OEM partner to develop, and launch, wide-format inkjet printers based on the innovative new Xaar 1201 Thin Film piezo printhead. 

Xucheng, under the brand name Xu Li, has produced four wide-format, roll-to-roll eco-solvent printers with the Xaar 1201 and recently demonstrated two models ? the X7-3207 and X7-2007 ? for the first time at ISE in Guangzhau, China. 

"It’s an honor to work with Xaar, a leader in the world wide inkjet industry,” says James Zhao, General Manager of Xucheng. “Xaar already dominates the coding and marking and ceramic tile inkjet printing markets and I am certain that with the Xaar 1201 we are entering a new era in the graphics industry. Xucheng is very proud to be part of this.” 

The Xaar 1201, announced at drupa in June, is a versatile and compact greyscale printhead. It prints 1, 2 or 4 colors, delivers a high level of quality and performance, and is capable of handling aqueous and eco-solvent inks. Designed for easy integration by printer manufacturers, the Xaar 1201 features 1280 nozzles jetting variable drop sizes to produce high quality graphics on a wide range of substrates at an apparent resolution of up to 1440dpi. 

“The wide-format graphics market has been waiting for a flexible, high-resolution printhead which delivers the very best combination of photo quality and productivity, at an affordable cost,” says Bob Bobertz, Director of Sales, Asia. “No other printhead comes close to producing the impressive levels of performance delivered by the new Xaar 1201 and we are not surprised by the response to this printhead from manufacturers around the world. Xucheng has moved quickly to take advantage of the new printhead and, in addition to their new eco-solvent printers, the company plans to introduce aqueous models using the Xaar 1201 in the future.”
