Xennia Technology, part of specialist materials company TenCate which is headquartered in the Netherlands, plans to launch its Zircon digital ink set for ceramic tile decoration in China. Xennia is embarking on this roll out due to the successful implementation of the ink in Europe.
Designed for difficult manufacturing environments, Xennia claims its Zircon inks provide ceramic tile producers with the opportunity to create designs with colour strength and density previously difficult to achieve with single pass digital production systems.
Dr Alan Hudd, managing director, Xennia said: “We are excited to be introducing Xennia’s Zircon ink set to the Asian market. China is the largest ceramic tile manufacturing country in the world and inkjet adoption is growing at a rapid rate. Zircon has been proven in production ceramic tile factories for over one year in Europe and is now available for all ceramic tile producers in China looking to create high quality ceramic tiles with excellent printing performance and reliability.”
With a history in inkjet stretching over 15 years, Xennia says it is the only ceramic ink supplier with roots in inkjet technology. This, it claims, generates the understanding necessary to deliver products focused on production reliability and productivity, providing a significant competitive advantage to customers. It added that the Zircon inks range leverages the benefit of Xennia’s industrial inkjet expertise to deliver unrivalled single pass jetting reliability. Xennia’s Zircon inks have been running successfully in Hope Ceramics Machinery’s Hope Jet printer over the past ten months.
Xennia is at the Ceramics China Exhibition, May 28th-31st, Guangzhou (hall 3.1, at stand C009-4)
