|Xaar opens new advanced technology centre to drive inkjet innovation
Xaar’s new Technology Centre in Sweden was officially opened by CEO John Mills at a ceremony held along with COO Graham Tweedale and members of Xaar’s Advanced Applications and Technologies team.
Based at Campus Solna in Stockholm, and at nearly 400 m2, it is twice the size of the previous facility and houses a state of the art laboratory with new equipment, offices, and meeting spaces for engineers, scientists and visitors to work within. The expansion provides Xaar with the ideal environment for its continuous research into the transformative potential of inkjet technologies and opportunities.
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 their 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.
On opening the new Technology Centre, John 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.”
