Versatile roll to roll printer
At swissQprint, quality is a key word, and all their large-format printers are equipped with absolutely extraordinary technologies and functions. Their roll to roll model Karibu is no exception. Karibu is a UV LED printer, which provides a unique opportunity to print on very heat-sensitive materials such as textiles. LED bulbs do not need either heating or cooling time and have an average lifespan of up to 10,000 hours. The fact that swissQprint has prioritized LED light over an ordinary UV lamp with a mercury bulb also makes Karibu a sustainable choice, as an LED bulb uses much less energy and is also completely free of the environmentally harmful mercury.

Wide color space
Karibu has as many as 9 color channels, which can be configured as desired and needed. All 9 channels are fully configurable and can be set up with CMYK colors, light colors, orange, white, two different neon colors; yellow and pink, as well as varnish.
The neon colors are one of the absolute highlights of swissQprint's inks, as these make it possible to print incredibly sharp neon colors that light up in UV light. This opens the doors to completely new printing options.
If you choose to add varnish, it is also possible to give your prints a wide range of eye-catching effects. The transparent varnish can be applied to a print as a shiny cover or used in some places to produce effect prints. Karibu can thus add an extra effect to many materials.
Streamlined printing process
swissQprints Karibu model is the obvious choice for companies that want a roll-to-roll printer where efficiency is top notch. Karibu has a print speed of up to 212 m2 / h, which is equivalent to printing the area of a tennis court in just one hour.
Karibu has a print area of up to 3400 mm in width and allows you to split the width up and print on two rolls at the same time.
The printer can also be configured for automatic double-sided printing. A camera in the printer reads QR codes, which are automatically printed next to the print. The codes tell the printer exactly where to print when printing on the back. It adjusts itself so that the print is placed precisely. Karibu handles this manual and time-consuming task and frees up capacity in production.
Karibu minimizes faulty production
One of the secrets behind the great success of swissQprint is that their printers take preventing crash and error into account. The Karibu model is, among other things, equipped with vacuum channels, which hold the material firmly under print, and ensure a flawless result.
In addition to this, the printer is equipped with sensors that make it stop immediately if something gets in the way of the print heads; for example, if a material is too thick or if something gets in the way. However, should the printer come to a standstill, this is not a disaster. Karibu resumes production from exactly the same place when it is restarted.
Finally, the Karibu is equipped with a cutting channel for a precise cut of the material as well as a light box just behind the print area, so that the finished print can be thoroughly reviewed while the printer is running.
