New print mode developments for high productivity and laydown using Xaar printheads
Previously reported was the capability of Xaar’s Platform 3 printheads incorporating short channel, double ended actuators and Xaar’s TF Technology® to achieve high productivity printing. Xaar has now developed a number of patented printing modes which significantly increase the productivity over its standard ‘3-cycle’ mode printing. The new modes of operation increase productivity and laydown by more than 5 times and enable these printheads to offer benefits for a number of applications such as printing of ‘special effects’, Braille and 3D printing. Details of the new printing modes will be discussed.
