Xaar – Expanding product range for UV applications

The newly launched Xaar 1002 GS40 print-head for UV applications

UK • The manufacturer of industrial inkjet technology launched the Xaar 1002 GS40 print-head for UV applications. This facilitates a range of high-build varnish and textured effects for labels, packaging, graphics and wood laminate. This new variant also includes TF Technology which ensures a continuous ink flow at a very high rate directly past the back of the nozzle during drop ejection.

The system jets drop volumes from 40 – 160pL and has greyscale capability (five levels). It is suitable for printing UV spot varnish and for applications requiring a high laydown at higher print speeds. And, depending on the drop size, the printhead can lay down extra opaque whites with a larger drop size or a finer base of whites with a smaller drop size; this can be particularly useful in creating fine detailed effects. For those wishing to print solid white base coats underneath fine halftone images or text, such as companies printing labels or packaging, the Xaar 1002 GS40 can be used in combination with the Xaar 1002 GS6 print-head.
