XAAR Printheads Shown At Nilpeter’s New Technology And Educational Center

Xaar’s printbar, printheads and technologies were integrated into Nilpeter’s FA-17 flexo press, enabling digital varnish and foiling embellishment capabilities through Xaar’s unique High Laydown Technology.

Xaar’s printheads and technologies formed part of the recent launch of Nilpeter’s new North American Technology and Educational Centre at the Open House at its Cincinnati Headquarters. The centre highlights Nilpeter’s product portfolio, including flexo, digital and value-added technologies.

Industry professionals saw the digital hybrid line in operation, with live demonstrations across the day. A range of samples showed the exceptional quality and features available for high-build varnish and digital foiling that make it perfect for inline value-added label printing.

Xaar’s High Laydown Technology delivers very high volumes of fluid in a single pass with exact temperature control, enabling the creation of high-build inks and varnishes to deliver an extensive array of tactile effects more efficiently.

With sustainability in mind, digital embellishments, when compared to screen printing, offer shorter set-up times and a higher utilisation rate, resulting in small run jobs being completed faster. In addition, the ability to jet higher volumes and viscosities of fluids improves the efficiency of print processes, reducing the need for multiple passes, delivering faster print speeds and cutting energy use and costs.

Commenting on the event, Søren Ringbo, General Manager Digital Products at Nilpeter said: ‘We were delighted to have Xaar’s printheads and technologies shown as part of the FA-17 at the launch of our new Technology and Educational Centre.’

‘Digital embellishments increase product shelf-appeal with little to no extra costs for screens, plates or similar and are perfect for adding value to labels in the health, personal care, wine and spirits segments, to name a few.’

Graham Tweedale, COO at Xaar added: ‘The Open House was a great event, and we were proud to see the digital varnish printbar, developed and manufactured by Xaar, add to the success of Nilpeter’s day. Digital print adds an extra dimension to label production and our printheads and technologies provide users with an extensive range of embellishment capabilities that complement Nilpeter’s innovative flexo presses.’
