DesignEdge has joined forces with Xaar the leader in industrial inkjet technology, on the design of a demonstration printer platform to present its range of premium inkjet printheads and products. Xaar announced a number of exciting new developments to be launched at Drupa, the largest printing equipment exhibition in the world which is held every four years by Messe Düsseldorf. Working closely with Xaar engineering the DesignEdge team generated a range of concepts for a new printer which would integrate the latest inkjet technologies. Careful consideration was required on the assembly, construction and access using large scale panels. The aesthetics needed to reflect a technically advanced, functional and elegant product utilising quality materials and finishes aimed at the printing industry. Designed, developed and manufactured within an extremely compact time frame the printer platform was launched to considerable success.
