We design and manufacture all products at our headquarters in Woodbridge, CT, USA.
XiJet designs and manufactures turnkey industrial inkjet print systems and controllers for variable data and color decoration applications. Our broad product range includes monochrome and full color thermal inkjet (TIJ) print systems and piezoelectric drop-on-demand (DOD) print systems. We also supply aqueous, solvent, and UV curable inks to match a variety of applications and substrates.
XiJet is focused entirely on industrial inkjet print systems. We do not design or sell other production equipment. Instead we work closely with partners who integrate complementary products such as transport systems, read & print cameras/software, and track & trace.
All XiJet print systems can be driven from our Composer software for job layout, RIP, and print management. We also offer several printer data interfaces, including Windows/Linux APIs, TCP/IP, and RS-232, for OEM customers who want to maintain their own user interface.
At its core, XiJet is a group of Engineers who are dedicated to designing the most reliable, fully-featured products on the market. We have shipped several thousand print systems worldwide since 2005. The most gratifying feedback we have received is from an end user who said, “I love the XiJet because it just works”.
XiJet recognizes that a “one product fits all” approach doesn’t meet the diverse requirements of the industrial inkjet market. We offer a broad range of print systems to match your unique needs.
XiJet was originally formed from Presco Engineering, an electronic product design and manufacturing company that has been in continuous operation since the 1970s. Presco had accumulated significant experience in industrial drop-on-demand inkjet printing, having designed controllers and software to drive print heads from Spectra (Fujifilm Dimatix), Trident, HP, and others.
XiJet was incorporated in 2005 as a separate company to take advantage of this considerable experience in drop-on-demand inkjet printing. Our initial product was a thermal inkjet print system targeted at the high-speed mailing market. The product was a hit and we were successful in building a worldwide network of master distributors and local dealers. Over the next decade, we expanded our market focus and distribution channels to include packaging, labels, pharma, and other specialty markets.

XiJet sells to end users through a worldwide network of integrators, master distributors and local dealers. If you are an end user interested in XiJet products, contact us and we’ll introduce you to an appropriate dealer.
We also sell directly to OEMs who are looking to incorporate a print engine within their products. For many XiJet OEM partners, printing is an important feature of their products, but it is not their primary focus. XiJet helps OEMs to integrate print systems without having to worry about the complexity of driving the print heads directly.
We are always looking to expand our dealer network to cover additional markets and geographic regions. Please contact XiJet if you are interested in becoming a dealer.
