Xaar, a world-leader in industrial inkjet printing, will highlight at InPrint Milan 2018 (Stand 820; 20-22 November) how OEMs can use its print heads to get to market faster, develop inkjet solutions cost-effectively, and better meet their customers’ needs – enabling them to get ahead of the competition and achieve more.

At the show, the company will celebrate the commercial launch of its Xaar 5601 print head. Eight years in development, the Xaar 5601 is generating significant interest with its exceptionally high-resolution print at high speed, and more than 5600 nozzles, capable of jetting up to eight litres of fluid per hour. A growing number of OEMs are developing their print solutions based on the Xaar 5601, such as Windmöller & Hölscher, which was announced earlier this year. Xaar is set to make a further announcement at InPrint 2018.

Visitors to Xaar’s stand will be able to inspect a range of stunning samples printed by the Xaar 5601, demonstrating why it is the ideal printhead for a range of applications including packaging, textiles, décor and commercial print. They will also be able to view a wide range of Xaar printheads, highlighting key sectors: Industrial Print, Packaging, Advanced Manufacturing and 3D Printing.

The results of another recent innovation – Xaar’s unique High Laydown (HL) Technology – will be on display. HL Technology enables the printing of a range of textured effects on labels, folding cartons and other products. Such high-build, textured embellishments (also called tactile or dimensional effects) can be used to significantly enhance the shelf appeal of products and ensure they stand out on display.
