XAAR announces new collaborations


XAAR has announced a collaboration with Koenig & Bauer Kammann (Kammann) and Marabu. The printhead major’s Ultra High Viscosity Technology is enabling Kammann to drive its latest innovations by enhancing quality, speed and sustainability for customers using its K15 and K20 decorative print machine families. Using the new high viscosity fluids developed by global ink manufacturer Marabu, Kammann’s machines allow both new and current customers to create personalised embossed effects on glass bottles, plastic and metal containers at a build height of up to 3mm. This latest development is entirely backwards compatible, enabling existing machines to jet at greater viscosity and carry a significantly increased pigment load, delivering more colour vibrancy and capturing fine details with up to 50 per cent less ink.
