W&H developed its first digital, single-pass press for flexible packaging with Xaar 5601 printhead.
W&H developed its first digital, single-pass press for flexible packaging with Xaar 5601 printhead.

Windmöller & Hölscher (W&H), a leader in machinery and systems for the manufacturing and converting of flexible packaging, is developing its first digital, single-pass press for flexible packaging using Xaar 5601 printheads.

The printhead was selected as a result of successful performance tests conducted over several months last year.

The company saw an opportunity for digital printing in flexible packaging, driven by the need for faster time-to-market and very short order lengths, and aimed to overcome the traditional difficulties in this area using expert knowledge and new technology, according to Hermann Veismann, General Manager Business Unit Printing and Finishing at W&H.

The Xaar 5601 incorporates a number of innovative technologies. Using Xaar's new Thin Film Piezo Silicon MEMS technology, the Xaar 5601 is very high resolution with over 5600 nozzles, capable of jetting up to 8 liters of fluid per hour.

New innovations such as AcuDrp Technology allow complete control over greyscale drop ejection for perfect image quality. In addition, the Xaar 5601 incorporates TF Technology to maximise production up time, print quality and lifetime.

The announcement from W&H is a significant milestone in the development of an economical and stable digital printing process for flexible packaging, following the successful adoption of digital technology by the labelling and commercial printing sectors.

The new digital machine will be characterized by higher quality and higher speeds and opens up new possibilities in flexible packaging,” explained Sven Michael, head of the W&H digital team. “It includes the Xaar 5601 printhead, which achieves excellent print quality at high production speeds.”

This announcement is a significant milestone for Xaar,” commented Doug Edwards, CEO at Xaar. “I’m delighted that the Xaar 5601 has been selected for this new development on the basis of the printhead’s high performance.”
