Xaar has received support for the launch its new Nitrox printhead with immediate availability software and electronics, designed to minimise the time required for its integration by OEMs.

Specifically, Meteor Inkjet and Global Inkjet Systems (GIS) are offering a selection of driver electronics, software and tools to ensure that OEMs and integrators can maximise the impact of the printhead, and minimise their time to market when launching new printers.

With firing frequencies of up to 48kHz, and print speeds exceeding 100m/min, the Xaar Nitrox printhead is designed to suit an ever-widening range of uses. This is aided by Xaar having worked closely with its partners to make sure that ‘plug in and print’ support is available for OEMs.

Graham Tweedale, general manager of Xaar’s printhead business unit, explained, ‘The support and collaboration of key software suppliers such as GIS and Meteor, has ensured that OEMs from almost any sector will immediately be able to explore and reap the rewards from Nitrox’s enhanced performance and productivity.’

With the Xaar Nitrox offering an array of enhanced capabilities and market applications, both Meteor and GIS have ensured their solutions fully underpin these.

Meteor Inkjet managing director Clive Ayling said, ‘Since 2008, Meteor has worked with Xaar to offer customers scalable and reliable printhead driving solutions.  Supporting all versions of the Nitrox printhead, our powerful, production-ready electronics and comprehensive suite of software ensures OEMs can be up-and-running quickly, while taking full advantage of the Nitrox high-laydown, high-speed technology in a wide variety of applications.’

Nick Geddes, GIS managing director, said, ‘Our latest driver electronics will fully enable the cutting-edge capabilities of this new printhead, and this, alongside the ability of our ink supply system to support the potential high flow rates, will enable OEMs to gain maximum productivity.’
