Since the company was founded in 1990, Xaar printhead technology has become the number one inkjet choice in a wide range of industrial manufacturing applications, reducing costs and waste and improving process efficiency. Today the latest Xaar 1002 printhead, featuring patented TF Technology™, has an unrivalled reputation for print quality and reliability in high-volume production environments in markets as diverse as advanced manufacturing, direct-to-shape packaging, label printing, décor laminates, glass and ceramic tile decoration. Manufacturers know that, even under the harshest operating conditions, the Xaar 1002 printhead delivers outstanding performance when decorating, patterning, depositing functional coatings on, or adding structure to, a variety of industrial and consumer products.
Xaar will also highlight exciting new applications which are made possible by TF Technology™. This patented recirculation technique ensures the Xaar 1002 printhead has an outstanding ability to handle difficult fluids ‒ particularly valuable for high-tech advanced manufacturing applications.
