Xaar Inkjet Technology Shows the Direction for Future Label Production

Press release from the issuing company

August 21, 2007 -- Xaar will be exhibiting at Labelexpo Europe 2007 (26-29 September 2007, Brussels) where several leading partners will hold the worldwide launch of their innovative systems featuring Xaar piezoelectric printheads. The integration of Xaar's technology into these digital printers marks the continuation of Xaar's growing contribution to the digital label printing industry.
Nilpeter will be launching a four-colour inkjet printer called 'Caslon' at the show. Using the industrial strength Xaar 1001 printhead, the Caslon prints from 25 to 50 m/min (depending on choice of greyscale levels), making it one of the industry's fastest high-quality UV inkjet printers.
In support of its partners' launch events Xaar will be demonstrating the productivity, quality and reliability of the 1001 head, with UV ink. This dynamically variable drop (greyscale) printhead is based on Xaar's patented Hybrid Side-Shooter platform with TF Technology. The combination of these features is ideal for high-quality, single-pass printing: fine details, smooth tones and readable text can be reproduced reliably and consistently.
"The launch of PAT Technology Systems' RotoworxTM machine at Labelexpo last year was the start of the shift in the label market", explains Phil Eaves, Sales and Marketing Director at Xaar. "High-speed quality printing on a moving web with all the benefits of no make-ready, variable data capability and fast production is perfect for the fast-growing short-run market. The fact that several leading companies are launching and demonstrating systems at this show is a great endorsement for our technology".
