Meteor supports Xaar High LayDown tech

Meteor Inkjet, which develops electronics and software to drive industrial inkjet printheads, will be supporting Xaar’s High Laydown Technology, as used in the Xaar 2001+ and Xaar 1003 printheads.

Xaar’s high lay down technology is particularly useful for industrial applications such as adding decoration to ceramic tiles.

The High Laydown Technology is designed to deposit large volumes of fluid at high speed in a single pass. It’s particularly useful in industrial applications such as adding gloss, adhesive, lustre and metallic for ceramic tiles, producing tactile effects including raised varnish, foil and Braille on labels, as well as white, black or flood coating or even some 3D print uses.

Clive Ayling, Meteor’s managing director explains, “Fully accessing the benefits of High Laydown Technology requires a thorough understanding of the printhead waveform, image encoding, line speed compensation and the ink delivery system.  Through our long-standing and close working relationship with Xaar, Meteor is proud to once again present a solution which allows our customers to easily take advantage of all that Xaar’s technology has to offer.”

Meteor Inkjet is based near Cambridge, UK and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Global Graphics.
