The Xaar 1002 GS40 printhead extends the market-leading family of printheads which support the widest range of inks and which all use Xaar’s unique TF Technology™ for maximum production uptime. With a minimum drop size of 40 picolitres (pL) the new Xaar 1002 GS40 can lay down twice as much ink as the Xaar 1002 GS12. As a result, the new printhead expands further the range of fluids that can be deposited to produce strong, vibrant colours and a range of glaze effects.
The Xaar 1002 GS40 is easy to integrate into additional bars within existing printers to add ‘Big Colour and Big Effects’ capability and will enable tile manufacturers to achieve incredible design differentiation.
“With these new printheads Xaar overcomes one of the final challenges to digitalising the entire ceramic tile manufacturing process,” says Richard Barham, Sales and Marketing Director, Xaar. “The Xaar 1002 printheads deliver the widest range of colour and special effects and we are very pleased with the spectacular tiles that can now be produced with our new printheads using innovative fluids from our Ink Partners. We are also pleased that our OEMs are ready to deliver the new Xaar 1002 GS40 to ceramic tile manufacturers both in new printers and as additional printbars within installed printers.”
