swissQprint presented the latest generation of its LED inkjet printers at FESPA Global Print Expo 2018, described as delivering more precise and stable printing results for an extended variety of applications and maximum productivity at 370 m²/h.
The Swiss developer and producer of large-format printers presented its third generation of machines at the show: Nyala 3, Impala 3 and Oryx 3, together with the speed models Nyala 3S and Impala 3S. Each of the LED flatbed printers offers accustomed add-on features, which now include an extended roll to roll option that was also shown for the first time at FESPA. A new control system, swissQprint explains, also contributes to the printers’ increased user-friendliness.
According to the company, Nyala 3S and Impala 3S are designed for high-output operations: Nyala 3S delivers up to 370 m²/h and Impala 3S up to 317 m²/h. swissQprint explains high-quality POS items, displays, posters, banners, backlit and other similarly demanding media are all suitable applications for the printers. Meanwhile, the maximum productivity level extends to print products intended for viewing at a distance, such as mega posters, banners and wraps for buildings under conversion, it explains.
swissQprint is introducing an extended roll to roll option as part of printer generation 3. A new spreading roller is designed to smooth material before it reaches the print bed in order to prevent wrinkles and resulting crashes, it says, while, carbon brushes on the spreading roller dissipate static charge from the material, aiding precise droplet placement. In combination with LED curing, the new roll to roll option increases the variety of materials by enabling printing companies to process delicate and heat-sensitive media, swissQprint explains. This solution includes another variant — the dual roll option for printing two widths of material in parallel, doubling productivity at a stroke, it notes.
The generation 3 models will be available from August 2018 through its distribution network.
