Xaar has announced the 1002 GS6 for UV applications. This next generation printhead has been developed and optimized for a wide range of UV applications, including labels, laminates, direct-to-shape, packaging and other types of product decoration, where product quality and industrial levels of reliability are paramount. The Xaar 1002 GS6 provides improved drop volume uniformity and drop placement accuracy. Featuring 1000 Optimized Geometry nozzles, the Xaar 1002 GS6 can jet and place drops with the highest precision on the market. A key feature of the Xaar 1002 is its ability to print heavily pigmented high opacity white inks and high viscosity varnishes reliably, enabled by Xaar’s patented ink recirculation technology, TF Technology. It is designed to be an ideal printhead for applications including labels and printing onto clear packaging for bottles, where opaque backup whites and high build spot varnishes are essential.
