Xaar has announced a new family of piezoelectric printheads suitable for use for coding and marking applications, though they won’t be available until late 2016.
Xaar, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, initially made its name through a number of printheads designed for coding and marking applications. This includes printing barcodes, best before dates and other product identification codes onto a range of packaging.
The new heads will all have a 17mm print swathe with the first to be released having 128 nozzles and sitting alongside the existing Xaar 128 heads.
They will be manufactured in Xaar’s award-winning state-of-the-art factory in Huntingdon, UK.
