August 14, 2007 -- Xaar presents its piezoelectric inkjet technology and pplications for the label printing, packaging, commercial print and industrial markets on Booth 5484 at Graph Expo 2007 (9-12 September, Chicago). The flagship Xaar 1001, the company's latest variable drop printhead, will be demonstrated in a web application using the latest UV ink technology.
Designed for high-speed, single-pass applications, the Xaar 1001 printhead is based on Xaar's patented Hybrid Side-Shooter(tm) platform with TF Technology(tm). Xaar's greyscale printing uses dynamically variable drops to deliver high quality four-colour results hour after hour, without downtime. The Xaar 1001 delivers impressive precision, a choice of selectable or variable drop sizes, self-priming and self-cleaning; superb repeatability; productivity and a long lifetime.
The company will also show a range of other Xaar printheads designed to meet a broad range of applications, including the highly versatile Xaar 760 GS8 which is capable of operating in greyscale or binary mode with a wide range of inks. This head delivers drop sizes ranging from 8 picolitres (pl) up to 40pl, and is ideal for applications such as high quality POP graphics, packaging and large format print applications.
"More companies than ever before at Graph Expo will show systems for demanding applications that rely on digital inkjet printing," says Chris Lynn, VP Sales & Marketing, Xaar Americas, Inc. "Industrial inkjet is a powerful technique which brings all the benefits of digital printing together with a broader range of inks and substrates than is possible with electrophotography. It's a terrific endorsement for us that Xaar imaging technology lies at the heart of many of today's digital printing systems."
