Xaar plc, the world leader in industrial inkjet technology, is delighted to announce a new family of piezoelectric printheads for printer manufacturers (OEMs) developing machines for coding and marking applications.
The new family of printheads, the first of which is to be available in late 2016, will all have a 17mm print swathe; this is an ideal width for high-resolution coding and marking applications such as printing barcodes, best before dates and other product identification codes onto a range of packaging. The new family of printheads will be manufactured in Xaar’s award-winning state-of-the-art factory in Huntingdon, UK.
Richard Barham, Chief Customer Officer at Xaar, comments: “We have set out a development roadmap of new 17mm printheads to support our coding & marking OEM customers over the coming years. The first of the new products, which we will launch towards the end of next year, will sit alongside the popular Xaar 128 and will also have 128 nozzles. This is an important market sector for Xaar, so we are delighted to announce a new range of printheads which underline our ongoing commitment to this sector.”
