Xaar will showcase the new Xaar 1002 family of printheads and present three new printheads that achieve “Big Colour” at Forn&Cer 2014, June 24-27, 2014 in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
“The ceramics industry has massively adopted digital inkjet for the tile decoration process but challenges remain in producing intense colors and special effects to increase differentiation and added-value,” says Richard Barham, sales and marketing director, Xaar. “Now Xaar has developed the technology to deliver even bigger advantages by achieving even higher levels of color intensity and the volume laydown for decorative and flood glazes. This will allow tile manufacturers to produce an even wider range of patterns and special effects as we digitalize the entire tile production process.”
Over the last few years the Xaar 1001 printhead has transformed the global ceramics industry by freeing tile manufacturers to replicate natural materials, producing highly creative and textured tiles, as well as larger and thinner tiles. Xaar’s ultimate aim remains the digitalization of the whole production process.
“The new Xaar 1002 GS40, Xaar 1002 SBX and Xaar 001 printheads are the result of considerable investment in R&D to enable ceramic tile producers worldwide to set new standards for design creativity and finishes. Our latest developments will be presented at Forn&Cer,” said Barham
