SwissQprint’s new Karibu S (S stands for Speed), the speed version of its Karibu large-format UV roll-to-roll printer, features increased productivity combined with “astonishingly good” print quality, said the OEM. Both the Karibu and Karibu S are capable of automatic, double-sided printing due to their camera system and QR codes. Created specifically for printers who run multiple shifts to produce large volumes of items – such as banners, non-durable poster prints and XL billboards – the Karibu S combines an output of up to 330 square metres per hour with “impressively sharp images and edges.”
The Karibu S features a defined printhead configuration – four printheads are in operation for each process colour. This explains its very high throughput rate. In addition, all swissQprint large-format printers have 9 dual-configurable colour channels, so one channel is left free. Typically, this channel is configured with white to print on items such as transparent films and more. Both models feature the same robust design “ensuring lifespans well above the average with their low operating costs,” the company added.
