Founded in 1990, British XAAR/Xaar is the world's leading supplier of independent industrial inkjet printheads, headquartered in Cambridge, UK, and listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1997. Xaar mainly designs, develops and produces piezoelectric inkjet print heads. In the early days, the main business was the transfer of patent rights, and many Japanese companies purchased the right to use its patents. In 1999, it established its own production base after merging with the Swedish MIT company, and currently has two production bases in Stockholm, Sweden and the United Kingdom. The early products of Purcell were mainly for the advertising inkjet printing industry and had a high market share. Afterwards, due to the impact of low-priced products, the product focus gradually shifted to the ceramic inkjet printing and home decoration industries.
The Xaar1003 printhead is a quality benchmark compared to other printheads on the market suitable for single pass printing. This all-round high performance printhead is based on the market leading Xaar1002 and its predecessor, the unique and groundbreaking Xaar1001. The new Xaar1003 printhead series introduces an important new feature – XaarGuard™ – which provides the ultimate in nozzle plate protection, plus other design innovations for the industry's longest maintenance-free production period*. In addition, the new Xaar1003 further improves consistent print quality across the entire wide print width for a variety of single-pass applications, thanks to Xaar's new X-ACT™ Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) manufacturing process.

With XaarIrix's highly accurate drop placement and drop uniformity, it produces outstanding print quality even when printing over long distances. Reliably print every drop of every image the first time and every time, increasing production uptime even in harsh environments. Provides a fast and economical route to market for anyone wishing to enter the field of inkjet technology.
Xaar 5601 has excellent performance and is ideal for printing textiles, fiber laminates, packaging, labels and commercial printing, and many other applications. The silicon microelectromechanical systems (Silicon MEMS) manufacturing process used in the design and production of the printhead reduces the overall cost of current digital inkjet machines, allowing equipment manufacturers to address new markets and seize new opportunities, thereby accelerating the introduction of major commercial and digitization in industrial printing applications.
The new Xaar2002 is designed to provide exceptional 720dpi print resolution quality and performance for a wide variety of applications, while delivering significantly improved color uniformity across the width of the printhead. Several technologies unique to Xaar ensure continuous and reliable printing in a single pass operation, maximizing throughput, minimizing production interruptions, and reducing the need for operator intervention. Using the drop in print head alignment, mechanical tolerance improvements allow the print head to be lowered into the print bar more easily. As a result, setup times are faster, printhead replacements are faster, and printer uptime is maximized.
The choice of high deposition technology for digital inkjet printers optimized with the Xaar2001+UV printhead makes a lot of business sense. Combining high resolution and proven TF technology, the Xaar2001+U ink recycling sets new standards for print quality and reliability in digital printing and is the best value printhead on the market today for a wide range of industrial applications.
The Xaar1201 is a thin-film piezoelectric silicon micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) printhead for printing wide-format graphics (WFG) and textiles using thermal transfer, eco-solvent, or water-based inks. It has 1280 orifices arranged in 4 rows and can print 2 colors (600dpi) or 4 colors (300dpi native resolution). Provides OEMs with an excellent, guaranteed high-quality printhead for the wide-format graphics and textile printing markets. High printing speed, high printing accuracy and high reliability achieved by MEMS technology, the Xaar1201 makes the Xaar1201 printhead ideal for electrostatic or multi-printing applications.
