Xaar is inviting visitors to see the latest in printhead technology on stand J21 at this year’s TCT Show, September 25-27 at the NEC in Birmingham. There they can learn how innovations such as Xaar’s High Laydown Technology and its partnerships with industry leading companies help integrators and machine producers to get ahead in 3D Printing.

Jetting 3D fluids with high viscosities (at least 55cP), valuable for 3D printing, is possible with the award-winning High Laydown (HL) Technology. Samples produced with high viscosity photoresins from BASF 3D Printing Solutions will be on display. In addition, significantly increased throughputs can also be achieved with High Laydown Technology. Therefore, faster printing of 3D parts with improved mechanical properties such as tensile strength is possible.

These advantages will be the focus for Angus Condie, Xaar’s Director of Integration and Applications, during his presentation High Volume Manufacturing in Photopolymer Jetting on the ‘TCT Introducing Stage’ on Tuesday, 25 September at 13.50. He will cover in detail how HL Technology can greatly increase the productivity of inkjet-based systems and enable a more diverse fluid portfolio.

In addition to a focus on High Laydown Technology, print samples illustrating how Xaar’s 3D printhead portfolio can be used in various 3D Printing methods such as High Speed Sintering, Binder Jetting, and Photopolymer Jetting will be on display.

“The TCT Show is a major event for the 3D Printing sector and we are excited to be exhibiting for the first time with our 3D printhead portfolio and High Laydown Technology,” says Simon Kirk, Senior Product Manager at Xaar. “We provide continuous support to our customers from early fluid evaluation through to successful solution development. That’s why we are welcoming manufacturers and integrators to discuss their project proposals and discover how Xaar can help them lower development costs, get to market quicker, and introduce printers that deliver a true competitive edge and a real value to 3D end-users.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
