Xaar has published a white paper subtitled ‘What goes around, comes around’, comparing the company’s TF ink recirculation technology with alternative ink recirculation techniques.
TF technology is a key building block in Xaar’s recently announced ImagineX bulk platform. Together with the Hybrid Side Shooter printhead architecture, Xaar’s TF technology enables ink or other fluids to flow directly past the back of the nozzle during drop ejection at very high flow rates, ensuring the nozzles are continuously primed.
Launched in 2007 with the introduction of the Xaar 1001 printhead XF technology has since opened up applications such as glass printing with frit inks, high opacity white pigment ink printing for labels, and heavily loaded conductive inks for printed electronics.
