Xaar Launches First Xaar 1201 Printers in China

Industrial inkjet technology developer Xaar announced the launch of the first Xaar 1201 printers in China.

Guangzhou Xucheng Electronic Technology is the first OEM partner to develop, and launch, wide-format inkjet printers based on the innovative new Xaar 1201 Thin Film piezo printhead.

Xaar 1201 was announced in June this year at drupa. It is a compact grayscale printhead and Xaar claims that can print 1, 2 and 4 colours in high quality and performance with the capacity to handle aqueous and eco-solvent inks.

Xaar has further claimed that the printhead has been designed to easily integrate with printers from several manufacturers. It features 1280 nozzles jetting variable drop sizes to produce high quality graphics on a wide range of substrates and can go up to a resolution as high as 1440 dots per inch (dpi).

Under the brand name of Xu Li, Xucheng manufactured four wide-format, roll-to-roll eco-solvent printers with the Xaar 1201 printhead and had also demonstrated two models – the X7-3207 and X7-2007 at ISE in Guangzhou in China.

Xucheng general manager James Zhao said: "It’s an honour to work with Xaar, a leader in the world wide inkjet industry.

“Xaar already dominates the coding and marking and ceramic tile inkjet printing markets and I am certain that with the Xaar 1201 we are entering a new era in the graphics industry. Xucheng is very proud to be part of this.”

Xaar Asia sales director Bob Bobertz said: “The wide-format graphics market has been waiting for a flexible, high-resolution printhead which delivers the very best combination of photo quality and productivity, at an affordable cost.

“No other printhead comes close to producing the impressive levels of performance delivered by the new Xaar 1201 and we are not surprised by the response to this printhead from manufacturers around the world.

“Xucheng has moved quickly to take advantage of the new printhead and, in addition to their new eco-solvent printers, the company plans to introduce aqueous models using the Xaar 1201 in the future.”
