swissQprint launches high speed version of Karibu UV roll to roll printer

Karibu, the UV roll to roll printer from swissQprint, now has a powerful big brother: the new high-speed model. Created for print service providers who run multiple shifts to produce large volumes of items such as banners, non-durable poster prints and XL billboards. Karibu S (short for ‘Speed’) combines an output of up to 330 square metres per hour with impressively sharp images and edges.

Karibu S features a defined print head configuration: four print heads are in operation for each process colour – and that explains the high throughput rate. What's more, all swissQprint large format printers have nine dual-configurable colour channels, so one channel is left free. Typically, this channel is configured with white to print items such as transparent films.

With their low operating costs, versatile UV roll to roll printers offer the promise of high added value throughout their long lifetimes. swissQprint's portfolio includes an optimised ink for its pure roll to roll printers. It features a broad adhesion profile and is very flexible. This means that print service providers can use almost every conceivable type of roll media. And the ink can stand up to everything that the material has to take: cutting, folding, stretching, and so on.

As a new feature, both Karibu and Karibu S can handle automatic double-sided printing. Thanks to a camera system and QR codes, the process takes place automatically – with high efficiency and reliability. Supported by Lory output software – developed in-house by swissQprint. Managing print jobs is made very simple thanks to intuitive graphic user guidance.

Both Karibu models feature the same robust design and high standard of quality that is typical of swissQprint products– ensuring lifespans well above the average.
