Xennia Launches XenJet Modules, Teams With Trident, Acquires Cametrics

United Kingdom-based Xennia Technology Ltd. -- a supplier of inkjet technology for industrial applications, and a subsidiary of the Netherlands-based Royal Ten Cate -- has launched its XenJet range of industrial-strength ink-jet modules. The range is designed to help original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and machine-building partners configure ink-jet printing solutions for industrial applications such as textiles, ceramics, glass, packaging and product decoration.

In other company news, Xennia has signed an agreement with Trident -- a Brookfield, Conn.-based industrial ink-jet printhead manufacturer -- under which Trident will supply printheads exclusively to Xennia for industrial textile decoration and finishing and industrial product coating.

"Trident's printhead technology is important for Xennia as it is extremely robust and enables printing of large drops that spread easily to form uniform layers, ideal for coatings in key industrial applications such as textiles, glass, floor and wall coverings, furniture laminates and decor papers," said Dr. Alan Hudd, managing director, Xennia. "The Trident printhead is compatible with our comprehensive suite of XenJet modules, comprising print engines, fluid controllers, maintenance units and application & printing software, backed up by integration support packages that reduce development risk and cut time to market."

In addition, Xennia has announced its acquisition of United Kingdom-based digital software company Cametrics.

"We have been working very successfully with Cametrics for a number of years," Hudd said. "Their software is the best inkjet printing software on the market and is a pivotal element of our inkjet printing systems and modules. We look forward to joining forces to supply the seamlessly integrated industrial modules the industry has been waiting for. OEM partners and their end customers can use these modules to transform their inkjet ideas into production reality, increasing responsiveness, efficiency and profitability."
