Xaar 2001 GS12C

Market-leading image quality and productivity


The new Xaar 2001 GS12C printhead for ceramic tile decoration delivers a powerful combination of market-leading image quality, highest productivity and industrial reliability. Tile manufacturers can print a wider range of tile patterns and designs whilst increasing production uptime.

Ultimate image quality is achieved by jetting one colour at a resolution of up to 720 dpi with 2000 nozzles per printhead; this delivers the high ink laydown needed for bold colours and special effects. Line speeds of up to 50 m/min ensure highest productivity and maximum throughput.

The Xaar 2001 GS12C printhead delivers market-leading image quality and high ink laydown to create ceramic tile designs that differentiate from the competition.

  • Market-leading image quality, with up to 720 dpi, means that tile manufacturers can produce a wide range of designs for floor and wall tiles
  • High ink laydown (up to 41 g/m2 at 25 m/min line speed) delivers tile designs with intense effects
  • Wide drop size range (12-84 pL) combined with up to 8 greyscale levels provides smooth tones and life-like images.

The Xaar 2001 GS12C delivers maximum throughput whilst printing an extensive range of ceramic tile designs and patterns.

  • 2000 Optimised Geometry nozzles deliver high productivity with a broad range of oil-based ceramic inks
  • High line speed of 50 m/min (ink laydown up to 20.5 g/m2) enables high production output and a fast return on investment

The Xaar 2001 GS12C printhead is designed to deliver maximum production uptime with minimum operator intervention which ensures high production output and a fast return on investment.

  • Xaar TF Technology® ink recirculation ensures continuous ink flow at a high rate directly past the back of the nozzles; air bubbles and unwanted particles are carried away – maintenance is reduced to typically once per shift or less
  • The XaarGuard nozzle plate protector provides highly effective protection from mechanical impacts so that production interruptions are minimised
  • With Xaar’s Tuned Actuator Manufacturing, actuator performance is optimised to ensure that print quality is consistent across all the printheads in a bar, and at different greyscale levels.
  • New XaarSMART technology reports ink temperature and printhead status in real time so that printer performance can be easily adjusted to deliver consistent print quality throughout the production run.
