Press release from the issuing company

(November 24, 2008) Xaar has a high-profile presence at FESPA World Expo Asia-Pacific (Bangkok, 28-30th November 2008) to celebrate the popularity of its industrial inkjet printheads in the region and its role as FESPA Global Technology Partner.

A range of Xaar printheads are in action across the show demonstrating the flexibility, reliability and high performance that makes them the inkjet technology of choice by many wide format printer manufacturers. XaarDOT™, Xaar’s ability to control variable-sized drops and fine tune them to specific applications, is a unique feature. By tuning the options, printer manufacturers can choose the best solution for the application -  high quality photographic results for close-up indoor viewing, and high productivity larger drop work for outdoor viewing on billboards or other signage.

Companies exhibiting at Fespa World Asia-Pacific who have chosen Xaar printhead technology to drive their wide format printers include: Agfa, MyJet (Chiting), Fujifilm Sericol, Rodin (HiJet), Witcolor, Infinity (Yat Fung), and Shenzhen. The new Witcolor Ultra2000 and the Chiting MyJet wide format printers which were launched at China Sign last week, and feature the latest Xaar technology, make their Fespa debut in Bangkok. The number of Xaar ink partners continues to grow, developing inks to image a wide variety of materials. These include:  Aquatint Inks, Dubuit, Fujifilm Sericol, and Nazdar.
In the Inspire Conference ‘Maximising Profit with Inkjet’, Mark Alexander, Director of Marketing at Xaar, explains how and why the market can now fully exploit the promise of inkjet. “With competition ever-increasing in the print world it is essential you consider how best to add value to your printed output. Inkjet provides flexibility and choice and the potential of new market opportunity through variable data, customization and short run capabilities. Understanding how digital print can be achieved with leading-edge inkjet technology and how you can choose the right product for your business to maximize profit is critical, but not always easy.”
