The swissQprint control centre is quite simply versatile, accommodating a comprehensive scope of parameterisation. For instance, fine adjustments before and after the RIP process are just as possible as the free positioning of differing or identical images. When the board option is used, the controller determines the ideal moment for clustering and cropping.
In summary: the software of a wide format printer by swissQprint is a guarantor for seamless and flawless results. The livespooler, a small supplementary tool, communicates between the RIP station and the output software. This makes workflow continuous and enables the machine operator to maintain a clear overview and keep timing under control. The tool tracks the jobs dispatched from the spooler and provides continuous feedback on the status of each job. The position of each job in the queue is always clear. The livespooler also keeps track of the number of printed copies, status reports and ink reservoir levels. Here is another example of the various auxiliary functions: a high-resolution CCD camera in the printing table provides a view of the printing nozzles magnified by a factor of 500 to enable visual adjustments.
Inkjet printing is as colourful as the world around us. The CMYK standard is expandable to nine colours: they include light colours for recreating natural skin tones and fine shading, as well as white, special effects lacquer and even primer for printing on glass. Special colours such as orange, violet and green expand the colour space further still for even more Pantone colour tones.
All of the UV-hardened inks are VOC free. They bond on acrylic, aluminium composite panels, wood, tarpaulins and awnings, polyester, polycarbonate, polystyrene, (rigid foam) PVC, vinyl films, flexible foam panels and numerous other media. Suitable materials may be stretched after printing without any signs of stress whitening in the colour, thanks to the adequately flexible ink.
