CAMBRIDGE - Digital inkjet technology developer Xaar has debuted its 1201 printhead in a range of new printer launches at two exhibitions in China.
The Xaar 1201 based printers are used in a wide range of applications such as UV flatbed, UV roll-to-roll, eco-solvent and textile printing, which were on show at the DPES Huaqiao 2019 Print Expo and the 27th Shanghai Ad & Sign Expo.
Xaar says that the 1201 is a printhead suitable for a wide range of industrial applications including graphics and textiles, with 1,280 nozzles and a capability to produce print with a resolution of over 1,440 dpi. They say this allows it to deliver high print speed and high drop placement accuracy. It also boasts different ink types, such as UV, eco-solvent, and aqueous.
“Our extensive network of support for the Xaar 1201 is ensuring our Chinese OEMs can integrate Xaar’s latest printhead technology within their new printers very effectively,” says Leon Wu, general manager of HaoCheng, adding: “the Xaar 1201 printhead now not only provides the high-performance OEMs require, but more importantly has the application expertise and support to deliver even greater business opportunities.”
Jason Remnant, head of product management at Xaar, said: “we are very pleased to see that a number of OEMs have already chosen the Xaar 1201 – placing their trust and confidence in our printhead.
“We have already seen over 30 machines installed with the Xaar 1201 printhead on display at the graphics tradeshows this year and look forward to continuing this growth and development through our OEM support network,” he added.
