Digital ceramic printers
The Xennia Ultramarine single pass printer is a high throughput inkjet digital ceramic printer, printing widths from 415 mm to 725 mm at speeds of up to 30 m/min, dependent on the chosen ink density, with full 8 level greyscale print quality. Xennia’s proprietary PureFlow™ total ink management technology offers full recirculation of the ink, allowing the use of ceramic tile printing inks with excellent reliability. The Xennia Ultramarine comes with 4 colours as standard, and options include additional colours and a high colour version printing at twice the speed, or twice the ink density, of the standard version. Advanced image handling capabilities include unlimited image memory and instant image changeover, with randomised image printing using a number of different modes including fully randomised printing and simulation of rotary printing.

The Xennia Ultramarine offers exactly these benefits.”
