KELENN Technology recently chose the Xaar 5601 printhead to produce a competitive print system that offers value to its customers. Based in France, and exporting print systems globally, KELENN manufacturers a range of industrial solutions for inkjet printing, automatic vision inspection, tracking and shipping for industrial production centres.
The Xaar 5601 printhead was selected for its latest document duplex printing system. The company commenced its development project with the Xaar 5601 because the printhead delivers an outstanding cost model for end users alongside high definition print quality at very high speed. The company has an enviable track record of rapidly developing new systems in response to customer demand. Its machines are used to print, count, identify, measure and track products in real time on the fastest manufacturing lines.
‘Xaar’s support and knowledge sharing has been excellent,’ said Didier Rousseau, CEO at KELENN. ‘We pride ourselves on our ability to get to market quickly with our new products. For this particular project, the speed of development was helped by the close technical collaboration with the Xaar team.’
Founded in 2006, KELENN’s successes include being the first to deliver an 850mm wide print bar at 600dpi, inventing sliced architecture for print engines, KEOS, and delivering the fastest CMYK print engine with dynamic thickness compensation for mixed mail pieces and packaging. More recently KELENN delivered one of the first and fastest 1200dpi single pass CMYK print engines for finishing lines (in 2015) and the first cost effective large web print tower (in 2018).
‘KELENN is a technically capable OEM trusted by its customers for delivering solutions that meet their demanding requirements,’ commented Jason Remnant, senior product manager at Xaar. ‘We are delighted to see KELENN is maximising the benefits of some of the key features of the Xaar 5601. I’m very much looking forward to seeing the finished print system, which will demonstrate how the Xaar 5601’s compact print zone contributes to the excellent print quality as well as the overall cost of the machine.’
