Xaar’s new Swedish tech centre to supercharge inkjet innovation
Cambridge inkjet printing pioneer Xaar says its new advanced technology centre in Stockholm will be a launchpad for some of the most significant advances the industry has seen.
At nearly 400 m2, the new facility is twice the size of the company’s previous Swedish facility and houses a state-of-the-art laboratory with new equipment, offices, and meeting spaces for engineers, scientists and visitors to work within.
Xaar says the expansion provides the ideal environment for its continuous research into the transformative potential of inkjet technologies and opportunities.
The tech hothouse was officially opened by CEO John Mills along with COO Graham Tweedale and members of Xaar’s Advanced Applications and Technologies team.
Xaar’s base in Sweden has played a key role in its R & D projects for many years, as well as supporting customers in the development and use of inkjet technologies.
From the new site, the team will continue to work closely across both internal and external projects – liaising with manufacturers, fluid formulators and specialist printer makers to help bring new processes to market using Xaar’s printheads and technologies across numerous markets.
Mills, said: “As an inkjet innovator it is essential that we continue to invest in developing the latest technologies and applications and I am delighted to open our new centre of excellence in Sweden as part of this strategy.
“The unrivalled expertise and knowledge of our team, combined with these state-of-the-art facilities, will be invaluable in supporting our collaborative growth and focus on developing opportunities for inkjet.”
