Its performance can be optimized in real time, providing consistent print quality throughout the production, even though the factory conditions might change and also is capable of a range within three drop sizes, depending which suits best the clients business.

Ultimate image quality is achieved by jetting one colour at a resolution of up to 720 dpi with 2000 nozzles per printhead. Line speeds of up to 50 m/min ensure highest productivity and maximum throughput.

“We have been using Xaar printheads for several years and are delighted to be the first company to launch an advanced digital glass decoration machine using the new Xaar 2001 to deliver the highest throughput levels in the industry today.”

– Javier Fernandez, Technical Director at Tecglass

We at FLAAR Reports were able to analyze this flatbed printer back in Dusseldorf this past September; Tecglass had a range of all new direct-to-glass printers, managing the all new XAAR 2001 and 2001+, we are going to keep on evaluating how this new printhead suits all this range of printers.
