The Xaar 1002 printheads revolutionised the tile decoration industry when first introduced. Today the Xaar 1002 family continues to be adopted all over the world as tile manufacturers move away from traditional tile decoration methods.
Xaar’s patented TF Technology™ ink recirculation and Hybrid Side Shooter™ (HSS™) architecture together deliver the highest flow rate of ink past the back of the printhead nozzle for effective air bubble and particle removal.
No other printhead on the market has the same true ink recirculation (directly past the back of the nozzle) or high flow rate as the Xaar 1002 printheads. Therefore reliability is radically improved even in harsh industrial manufacturing environments.
The Xaar 1002 GS6 jets 6-42 picolitre drops making it ideal for the production of light tones and detailed tile designs viewed at close quarters, such as wall tiles.
The Xaar 1002 GS12 jets larger 12-84 picolitre drops, delivering even more ink for bolder tile colours and effects. Alternatively, the Xaar 1002 GS12 can give the same ink coverage as the Xaar 1002 GS6 but at double the print speed.
The Xaar 1002 GS40 is the next step in fufilling Xaar’s vision of digitalising the ceramic tile production process. It jets 40-160 picolitre drops, delivering the most intense colours and new special effects to make tiles much more vibrant and life-like.
