​ ​Xaar, the world’s leading inkjet technology specialist, is pleased to announce the launch of the All New Xaar 1002 GS6 for UV applications. This next generation printhead redefines the standard in single-pass printing, delivering exceptional print quality and productivity to manufacturers worldwide.

The Xaar 1002 GS6 has been developed and optimised for a wide range of UV applications; these include labels, laminates, direct-to-shape, packaging and other types of product decoration, where product quality and industrial levels of reliability are paramount.

The All New Xaar 1002 GS6 incorporates multiple new technology features, drawing on Xaar’s many years’ experience in a number of industry sectors, giving improved drop volume uniformity and drop placement accuracy for an even higher quality printed image. Featuring 1000 Optimised Geometry nozzles, the Xaar 1002 GS6 can jet and place drops with the highest precision on the market. As a result this new printhead produces high resolution text and images with smooth tones demanded by manufacturers globally.
A key feature of the All New Xaar 1002 is its ability to print heavily pigmented hig​h opacity white inks and high viscosity varnishes extremely reliably, enabled by Xaar’s patented ink recirculation technology, TF Technology™.  Therefore it is the ideal printhead for a wide range of UV applications including labels and printing onto clear packaging for bottles, where opaque backup whites and high build spot varnishes are essential.
The All New Xaar 1002 GS6 printhead builds on the outstanding success of the market-leading Xaar 1001 GS6 which has had a major impact on both printing and manufacturing industries world-wide, and is universally recognised as the leading industrial inkjet printhead. Manufacturers choose Xaar technology for its overall exceptional performance and unrivalled reliability which is delivered by Xaar’s TF Technology™ combined with the Hybrid Side-Shooter™ architecture; this is the only true ink recirculation system which ensures maximum production uptime. Customer ‘ease of use’ has also been enhanced by an improvement to the customer electronic interface and by enabling a reduction in the set up time required.
The Xaar 1002 GS6 is a highly versatile printhead. It is capable of handling a wide range of fluids and viscosity ranges and is backwards compatible with the Xaar 1001 GS6. Also available alongside the Xaar 1002 GS6 is a range of systems components – including the new slimline HPC3, the XUSB and Xaar Hydra. These have been designed for easy configuration, optimisation and integration to reduce time to market. In addition, the improved uniformity of the Xaar 1002 GS6 allows manufacturers to configure narrow web and wide-format printers faster and more easily. Finally, as the Xaar 1002 GS6 is fully compatible with Xaar 1001 GS6-enabled printers, users can easily upgrade whenever they wish and experience the benefits immediately.
“The original Xaar 1001 GS6 with its unique recirculating TF Technology™ kick started the digital inkjet revolution in the label, direct-to-shape and laminate sectors. The All New Xaar 1002 GS6, incorporating the very latest patented* technology, defines the next generation of printhead, setting the levels of quality and performance available to manufacturers in a variety of industries,” says Richard Barham, Sales and Marketing Director, Xaar. “Our commitment to investing 12% of our revenue in R&D means that we will continue to deliver the very best inkjet technology to manufacturers globally, ensuring they benefit from a competitive advantage and a maximum return on their investment.”
Systems featuring the All New Xaar 1002 GS6 printhead are available now from a number of Original Equipment Manufacturers including Autobond, Durst, EFI, FFEI, Hymmen, INX Digital, KHS, Krones, Sacmi, SPG Prints and Till Engineering.
