Software

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.

Colours

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.

Media diversity

UV-curing inks adhere to acrylic, aluminium composite panels, wood, tarpaulins, polyester, polycarbonate, polystyrene, (high-­density) PVC foam sheet, vinyl films, flexible foam panels, and with primer even on glass, anodised aluminium and stainless steel.

Homogenous white

White ink has a well-known tendency for sedimentation. swissQprint systems keep it agitated and circulated right down the print nozzles. Reliable print results are always assured, regardless of how often white is actually used.

First-level safety

Should something or someone breach the light curtain surrounding the beam, the print head carriage will slow down to warn as well as protect the operator. Meanwhile, printing continues and there are no rejects.

Targeted suction power

The vacuum system is steplessly adjustable along the width of the print bed. Masking is largely unnecessary. A higher-powered vacuum option is available for industrial applications and the Tandem function.

Second-level safety

Crash Sensor Technology prevents damage, for instance if the material thickness was entered incorrectly or corners on the medium are sticking out. The print head carriage is stopped immediately.

Vacuum inversion

The Quick Release button neutralises the vacuum in no time at all – and the substrate can be removed immediately. Thrust reversal creates an air cushion for effortless handling of heavy media.

Multiple points of origin

The simple, quickly set registration pins are a unique feature. In addition to defining the zero-origin, they also provide additional mechanical attachment points: format-independent, with as many as required to make efficient use of the printing table area.

Swiss made

swissQprint systems are developed and manufactured in Switzerland and are characterised by precision, long service life, and robust quality down to the very last detail.
