Karibu, swissQprint’s first roll-to-roll printer, will make its North American debut at booth 8845.

The Swiss manufacturer will also present its other flatbed solutions, including its flagship flatbed printer, Nyala 3. Now available internationally, the UV inkjet printer delivers a maximum print width of 3.4 metres and features a lightbox next to the printing area for on-the-spot inspection of backlit prints. Four beacon-like status indicators are affixed to the print beam, informing the operator of machine status and printing progress. 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, doubling Karibu’s productivity. The roll holders are split into two sections with each half of the shaft driven individually, which swissQprint says will help ensure optimum web tension on both rolls.
