Over the last few years the revolutionary Xaar 1001 printhead has transformed the global ceramics industry by freeing tile manufacturers to replicate natural materials, producing highly creative and textured tiles, as well as larger and thinner tiles. Xaar’s ultimate aim remains the digitalisation of the whole ceramics deposition process. Today’s announcement of three new printheads delivering more volume, colour, special effects and new fluids, will enable innovative manufacturers to create a wider variety of spectacular tiles. Xaar has been working with leading industry institutions and its ink partners so that these new printheads can achieve effects and colours beyond traditional digital decoration limits.
“The new Xaar 1002 GS40, Xaar 1002 SBX and Xaar 001 printheads are the result of considerable investment in R&D to enable ceramic tile producers worldwide to set new standards for design creativity and finishes. Our latest developments will be presented at Ceramics China,” says Barham.
Xaar’s ceramic industry OEM partners at this year’s show include EFI Cretaprint, Hope Ceramics Machinery, KERAjet, Meijia Ceramic Equipment, New King Time Machinery, Intesa-Sacmi, SITI B&T, SRS and TecnoFerrari.
