The Visitors

Xaar recently welcomed a delegation of its Chinese OEM customers and Master Distributor for the Xaar 1201 to its headquarters and manufacturing facility in Cambridgeshire. The visit underlined the group’s commitment to the Xaar 1201 printhead, which prints high-quality images onto many media types, making it a versatile printhead and an ideal choice for today’s graphics market.

The visiting partners consisted of OEMs XuCheng, Botianyin, ChunYuQiuFeng Digital Color Printer, Nuocai, Refretonic and X-Roland, as well as HaoCheng, Xaar’s Master Distributor in Greater China.

A tour of the company’s state-of-the-art Huntingdon manufacturing facility gave the visitors an overview of the company’s excellence in printhead design, development and quality control. This included demonstrations of the materials compatibility process, life-test process, waveform development, temperature compensation testing and print reliability testing.

The group from China was also able to learn about new technology for the graphics market, before a trip to Kings College, Cambridge to visit the memorial to the Chinese poet Xu Zhimo, and a drinks reception and dinner.

“It was fascinating to tour Xaar’s main facility and learn more about the Xaar 1201 printhead,” said James Zhao, chairman at HaoCheng. “Together with the integration solutions provided by HaoCheng, Xaar’s 1201 printhead definitely plays a strong role in enabling high performance graphics printers to be produced by Chinese OEMs.”

“Asia is an important region so we were particularly honored to host our Chinese partners and help them learn more about the technology and expertise that underpins all our products,” said Doug Edwards, chief executive officer, Xaar. “In particular their visit highlights the confidence our Chinese OEMs have in the Xaar 1201.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
