AcuDrp Technology delivers a number of advantages unique to Xaar including dynamic sub drop tuning for every nozzle in the printhead by waveform and voltage. This helps minimise drop volume and drop speed variation across the printhead, and from printhead to printhead. Therefore banding and colour density variations are minimised and changes in nozzle performance over time are managed effectively. Cold switching ensures heat generation within the printhead is minimised avoiding any impact on printing performance from associated fluid viscosity changes.
High Laydown Technology
Xaar’s new patented High Laydown (HL) Technology, which is compatible with Xaar 2001+ U, Xaar 2001+ C, Xaar 1003 U and Xaar 1003 C printheads, is perfect for digitally producing dimensional effects. HL Technology prints very high levels of UV inks or high build varnish for tactile effects that enhance shelf appeal for a wide range of packaging and labels.
Effects possible with High Laydown Technology:
- Tactile varnish
- Raised foil
- Warning triangles and braille.
HL Technology also achieves extremely high laydown levels with ceramics effects, so that effects can be printed at even higher line speeds.
