Xaar will show its full range of binary and greyscale inkjet printheads at FESPA Digital in May (booth M80), including the European debut of two new next generation binary printheads.
Market interest in Xaar's greyscale printheads is huge and manufacturers have quickly developed leading edge printers to maximise their capabilities. This is demonstrated in the high number of new Xaar-enabled printers being shown at FESPA Digital this year. Several of these machines are making their global debut at the show, including the Atlantic Zeiser Gamma 70 print module, the mprint SP2 100 printer and the Vega UV flatbed printer.
Other companies exhibiting at FESPA Digital this year, who integrate Xaar printheads into their products, include: Agfa, Grapo, HP, Mutoh, Rodin, Teckwin, and Yat Fung. These companies will be joined by nearly all of Xaar's Approved Ink Partners, who will also be present at the show. The number of Xaar Approved Ink Partners at the show is an endorsement to Xaar's open ink policy and is Xaar's way of ensuring the widest range of choice for its printhead users.
Twelve new printers incorporating the Xaar Proton and Electron printheads were recently launched at Sign China. Several of these are expected at FESPA Digital, including the four-colour hybrid roll and sheet-fed Yat Fung Infiniti printer and the Rodin HiJet printer. The launch of the new entry-level, high-speed Xaar Electron and the new premium print quality, high-productivity, Xaar Proton, set new standards in wide and grand-format printing performance. They are ideal for the production of indoor and outdoor graphics printed on a variety of materials including: paper, PVC, film, mesh fabrics and vinyl.
"We continue to invest in developing our printhead range to drive inkjet quality and productivity, not only in wide and grand-format printing, but in the emerging and growth markets of labelling, packaging and ceramics," said Mark Alexander, marketing director of Xaar. "The Xaar printhead range now features a choice of eight models each with multiple versions to give manufacturers the ability to choose the perfect technology for their specific application. That's why Xaar's presence at FESPA Digital 09 is stronger than it has ever been."
