Xaar has opened its new technology centre in Sweden, providing an, ‘environment for its continuous research into the transformative potential of inkjet technologies and opportunities.’
Based at Campus Solna in Stockholm, the new technology centre is nearly 400sqm. That is twice the size of the previous facility. It houses a state-of-the-art laboratory with new equipment, offices, and meeting spaces for engineers, scientists and visitors to work within.
Xaar’s base in Sweden has played a key role in its R&D projects for many years, as well as supporting customers in the development and use of inkjet technologies. From their new site, the team will continue to work closely across both internal and external projects, liaising with manufacturers, fluid formulators and specialist printer makers to help bring new processes to market using Xaar’s printheads and technologies across numerous markets.
As such, the expansion is said to provide Xaar with the ‘ideal environment’ for its continuous research into the transformative potential of inkjet technologies and opportunities. The official opening was overseen by Xaar CEO John Mills, along with company COO Graham Tweedale and members of Xaar’s Advanced Applications and Technologies team.
Mr Mills said, ‘As an inkjet innovator it is essential that we continue to invest in developing the latest technologies and applications, and I am delighted to open our new centre of excellence in Sweden as part of this strategy.
‘The unrivalled expertise and knowledge of our team, combined with these state-of-the-art facilities, will be invaluable in supporting our collaborative growth and focus on developing opportunities for inkjet.’
