Karibu is a roll to roll printer with swissQprint DNA; reliable, sophisticated and versatile – just as the flatbed printers of this Swiss manufacturers are. Unique features render the printer highly efficient, starting with the quick setup of the material, on to clever vacuum control, and to operation via the newly developed output software.
Karibu is precise and delivers first-class print quality. Thanks to cool LED curing, the printer processes a wide range of roll material using a specially developed ink set. Hence, it provides great versatility as well as high return on investment.
Karibu has a Mesh Kit integrated with the print bed. This makes clean and simple work of processing permeable substrates, as well as full bleed printing. There is neither additional set-up work beforehand nor cleaning afterwards. A mouse click by the operator sends the Karibu print beam – which is movable in the X direction – from its standard position to the mesh position. Printing can then start immediately.
For users who regularly print in parallel, swissQprint offers a dual roll option capable of handling two rolls each up to 1.6 metres wide. This doubles Karibu’s productivity. The roll holders are split into two sections with each half of the shaft driven individually, ensuring optimum web tension and perfect results on both rolls.
The high-end inkjet printer will now debut in the Asia Pacific region at the Sign & Display Show, Tokyo, from 29-31 August.
