Xaar plc, a developer of industrial inkjet technology, has introduced a new family of piezoelectric printheads for printer manufacturers (OEMs) developing machines for coding and marking applications.

The new family of printheads, the first of which is to be available in late 2016, will all have a 17-mm print swathe, which the company describes as being an ideal width for high-resolution coding and marking applications like printing barcodes, best before dates and other product identification codes onto a range of packaging. The new family of printheads will be manufactured in Xaar’s factory in Huntingdon, UK.

“We have set out a development roadmap of new 17-mm printheads to support our coding and marking OEM customers over the coming years,” said Richard Barham, Chief Customer Officer at Xaar. “The first of the new products, which we will launch towards the end of next year, will sit alongside the Xaar 128 and will also have 128 nozzles. This is an important market sector for Xaar, so we are delighted to announce a new range of printheads which underline our ongoing commitment to this sector.”

Xaar, celebrating its 25th year of inkjet development this year, initially established itself through a number of printheads designed for coding and marking applications. The company explains the new print head will allow it continue to add value for the foreseeable future to manufacturers who are required to print product identification information onto their products during the production process.
