InPrint Founding Member, Xaar, will highlight the 'remarkable transformative power' of its industrial inkjet printheads at InPrint 2014, 8-10 April, Hannover Messe. Visitors to the Xaar booth (#E16) will discover how manufacturers globally are taking advantage of Xaar’s inkjet technology to drive down costs, reduce waste, improve process efficiency and move to just-in-time production.
Xaar printheads incorporate patented technology which delivers unbeatable performance when decorating, patterning, depositing functional coatings on, or adding structure to, a variety of industrial and consumer products. Today leading manufacturers worldwide, in sectors ranging from ceramics and labels to direct-to-shape packaging and laminate flooring, choose Xaar’s printheads because they are extremely precise, exceptionally versatile, incredibly reliable, and designed for high-volume production. In the ceramics industry alone, 40% of the market has converted to digital decoration, with Xaar taking 75% market share. Now emerging and cutting-edge advanced manufacturing systems for the production of solar cells, semiconductor wafers and touch screens for tablets and mobile phones are powered by Xaar printheads.
Several speakers at InPrint 2014 will highlight the potential of Xaar inkjet technology. In his Keynote ‘Inkjet: The Key to High Volume Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing’ Neil Hopkinson of Sheffield University provides an insight into how inkjet is core to High Speed Sintering technology and how it will change the way that products are made in the future.
The application and benefits of direct-to-shape digital decoration onto cans and bottles using Xaar printheads will be explored by Volker Till, Till GmbH during his session: ‘Create Value with Digital Decoration in a Rapidly Changing Mass Market’; and Michael Hesse of Hymmen will present ‘Industrial Single-Pass Printing for Decorative Surfaces’ looking at digitally printing laminates for a variety of décor applications. In the presentation ‘Inkjet as an Advanced Manufacturing Process’ Xaar’s Richard Darling explains why Xaar printhead technology has the ability to deliver the very best performance for industrial applications.
“The power of Xaar printheads to transform manufacturing processes is hugely exciting,” says Mark Alexander, Director of Marketing at Xaar and InPrint Ambassador. “Xaar technology has already had a substantial impact on a number of industries but has considerable potential to impact many more. InPrint, running alongside HANNOVER MESSE 2014, is an ideal event to show process engineers why Xaar technology is so successful and explore how it can benefit their own specific applications.”
