xaar 1201 printhead

This year’s Shanghai International Ad & Sign Technology & Equipment Exhibition in Shanghai China (8 – 11 March 2017) featured the strong presence of the Xaar 1201 as a number of Xaar’s development partners demonstrate the printhead’s capabilities at the show.

Launched at drupa in 2016, the Xaar 1201 is a thin film piezo Silicon MEMS technology printhead perfect for OEMs looking to design textile or graphics printers for banners, soft signage and POS applications. This compact printhead delivers a high quality of print combined with high productivity and is exceptionally easy to integrate; therefore time-to-market is minimised.

Xaar’s Chinese partners showing the Xaar 1201 include Guangzhou Xucheng Electronic Technology Co Ltd (Xucheng), Gongzheng Group Co Ltd and Zhengzhou New Century Digital Print Technology Co Ltd (New Century), all displaying one or more printers using the Xaar 1201 with eco-solvent ink. Also from China, Human Digital Technology (Shanghai) Co Ltd will be showing three Xaar 1201 based printers, with either eco-solvent or aqueous ink. Indian based partner Colorjet will be presenting its AuraJet printer also with Xaar 1201 printheads.

“We are delighted to see so many of our key partners leading with our latest thin film printhead at this year’s Shanghai Ad show,” says Bob Bobertz, Director of Sales, Asia. “The Xaar 1201, which is particularly suitable for applications requiring eco-solvent, aqueous and UV inks, is a flexible, high resolution printhead. It delivers the very best combination of photo quality and productivity at an affordable cost. No other printhead comes close to producing the impressive levels of performance delivered by the new Xaar 1201.”
