Xaar has launched its 1003 family of print heads aimed at industrial inkjet printing, which builds on the company’s preceeding Xaar 1002 and 1001 products.
Xaar explains the 1003 print head family introduces an important new feature called the XaarGuard, which provides nozzle plate protection and, coupled with other design innovations, achieves what the company states to be the longest maintenance-free production runs in the industry.
The Xaar 1003 was produces with the company’s new X-ACT Micro Electric Mechanical Systems (MEMS) manufacturing process, which was recently awarded Manufacturing Site of the Year by the National Microelectronics Institute.
The Xaar 1003 family of print heads combines Xaar’s TF Technology and Hybrid Side Shooter architecture so that ink is recirculated directly past the back of the nozzle during drop ejection at high flow rates. This helps the print head operates reliably even in the harsh industrial environments. Ink is in constant circulation, preventing sedimentation and subsequent blocking of the nozzles when jetting.
The Xaar 1003 will be available in three variants. The Xaar 1003 GS12 (rich colours or higher speeds) for ceramics applications is first to be launched, closely followed by the Xaar 1003 GS6 (for fine detail) and the Xaar 1003 GS40 (for special effects). The other variants for UV applications will also be available later in the first half of this year.
