TenCate daughter Xennia signs agreement with printhead manufacturer Trident

ALMELO, NETHERLANDS--(Marketwire - May 24, 2010) - TenCate subsidiary Xennia Technology in Letchworth (England) has today announced a major agreement with printhead manufacturer Trident from Brookfield (USA) for the supply of industrial inkjet printheads for a number of specific applications. Trident supplies printheads to Xennia exclusively for industrial textile decoration and finishing, as well as other industrial coating products.

Trident printhead technology is important for Xennia because these heads are very robust and fully consistent with the modular inkjet solutions that Xennia provides to key industrial markets. In addition, the printheads print large drops which spread to form uniform layers that are ideal for industrial coatings. The Trident printheads can be used in Xennia's inkjet systems for applications like textiles, glass, floor and wall decorations, furniture, wallpaper and laminates.
