Xaar, which is
the leading inkjet printing technology group, claims that its advanced Ultra
High Viscosity technology will demonstrate the difference that inkjet printing
will make to labels and packaging.
Part of Xaarâ€™s ImagineX platform, this
technology is going to ensure that Xaarâ€™s printheads will deliver high impact,
efficient, and productive results related to digital label and packaging
printing. It is seen that by using an extended high colour gamut and fluids along
with larger particles as well as more pigment, the colors come out to be more
vibrant and black and white become stronger. This is very useful for delivering
impact on many labels and direct-to-shape packaging printing applications.
Fluids and inks with viscosities can also
be jetted in a single pass. This further opens up the opportunities for label
and packaging printers so that new and exciting finishes can be delivered to
clients across a wider variety of packaging materials.
According to Graham Tweedale, General
Manager, Xaarâ€™s printhead business unit, Ultra High Viscosity technology is
going to open new opportunities for Xaar in a number of applications, mainly
packaging and label. He also said that inkjet printheads could only use jet fluids of
around 8 to 12 cP, while the new technology by the company allows the printer
to jet much higher viscosities.
