Xaar is launching its new Versatex ‘out-of-the-box’ print engine and the latest Nitrox Elite GS3 printhead at this year’s InPrint exhibition in Munich on 15-17 March. 

Both exciting new developments will be on show in Hall A4, stand 2710, further establishing Xaar as an industry leader in unlocking the versatility and capability of digital inkjet in today’s manufacturing processes.

The Xaar Versatex provides users who have limited inkjet experience with the ability to fast track the digital inkjet development and integration process, allowing a speedy, cost-effective and agile way for manufacturers to explore new potential applications. 

Comprising a fully integrated datapath, ink supply system and supporting a large array of printheads from the ImagineX platform, the Xaar Versatex is a versatile, user-friendly and ready-to-go solution. It is available as both an evaluation kit, and a larger print engine and can be configured with multiple printheads up to 420mm in width.

Alongside the Xaar Versatex, the Nitrox Elite GS3 printhead will be shown for the first time. The small drop variant printhead is the newest member of the Xaar Nitrox family and delivers improved print uniformity and drop placement, creating high-definition image resolutions for smoother skin tones, gradients and colours. This makes the Nitrox Elite GS3 ideal for label and graphic applications as well as enabling fine details and features for functional fluid applications, such as PCB printing.  

Graham Tweedale, chief operating officer at Xaar said, “We are delighted to be demonstrating our latest developments at InPrint, the leading show for emerging printing and industrial manufacturing.

“By providing our customers with the latest inkjet printheads, technologies and infrastructure – available all under one roof – Xaar is helping customers address their latest application requirements and seize their inkjet opportunity.”

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.
