Open day attendees invited to see how Xaar is ‘revolutionising’ inkjet opportunities

XAAR is inviting visitors to its Cambridge R&D facility on November 7 to see how its latest technologies are ‘redefining the boundaries’ of inkjet printing.

The firm explained that, traditionally, inkjet has been ‘limited’ by its ability to print fluids of viscosities between 10 to 25cP. However, with Xaar’s Ultra High Viscosity Technology, fluids of up to 100cP at jetting temperature and those with a high particle loading can now be used.

This is enabling the development of new fluids for jetting and providing access to the potential benefits of digital printing, as well as delivering advantages to applications where it is already used.

R&D engineers, technologists, process engineers and product managers currently working with inkjet or looking to work with inkjet in packaging, labels, corrugate, textiles and other applications, are invited to register their interest in attending this free event. Attendees will see practical demonstrations showing a range of aqueous, UV and solvent fluids being jetted.

Karl Forbes, group R&D director at Xaar, said, “With our latest technologies many of the traditional boundaries of what can, or cannot, be printed by inkjet are no longer relevant. Our Open Day will help people see what is now possible using fluids with higher viscosities and a higher particle loading, with demonstrations showcasing how Xaar’s inkjet can now unleash opportunities in so many new sectors and applications.”

The event will be held the day before the FuturePrint Tech ‘Digital Print for Manufacturing’ conference in Cambridge on the 8th & 9th November, where Xaar’s group R&D director Karl Forbes will be presenting his talk titled, ‘Seeing is believing’.

Those wishing to attend the Open Day are invited to register their interest at as places are limited.
