Xaar Launches Xaar 1002 GS12U Printhead for UV Applications

Xaar announced the launch of the Xaar 1002 GS12U printhead, printhead for UV applications. This new versatile and productive printhead extends the Xaar 1002 family of printheads, and gives the UV inkjet printing market a choice of printheads to suit specific applications. The greyscale Xaar 1002 GS12 jets drop volumes from 12-84pL, enabling a range of drop sizes to be printed with a single printhead. The large-drop capability of this flexible printhead, combined with Xaars patented TF Technology ink recirculation, makes it ideal for printing high-build spot varnishes and extra-opaque whites onto labels and direct-to-shape packaging (in both horizontal and vertical printing modes). In fact, no other printhead on the market can match the high level of opacity and production reliability achieved by the Xaar 1002 GS12 in a single pass without resorting to multiple print bars. The Xaar 1002 GS12 complements the Xaar 1002 GS6 (6-42pL) variant for UV applications, launched last year, which is designed for applications where high-resolution text and images with smooth tones are important. Like the GS6, the GS12 delivers exceptional print quality and reliability to manufacturers of UV printers worldwide. It is a highly versatile printhead and enables a choice of speed depending on the application without compromising on quality e.g. high ink volume at high speed or lower ink volume at super-fast production speeds. Systems featuring the new Xaar 1002 GS12 printhead for UV applications are available now from a number of Original Equipment Manufacturers including Autobond (digital spot varnish applications) and Till (high opacity white for direct-to-shape applications).
