In a totally unexpected move, swissQprint announce the unveiling of a new printer model at FFEPA Berlin 2022. The new Kudu is a 3.2×2 m high-end UV LED printer that complements the existing flatbed range – Nyala, Impala and Oryx, according to a company press release. Like the 4th generation of this trio, which swissQprint launched only six months ago, Kudu operates at a redefined standard of quality. It is also highly productive and offers ten colour channels (nine on the other models).
The Kudu flatbed printer stands on a newly designed mechanical foundation and operates using the latest linear drives. “This ensures precise droplet placement at such high speeds. It features the Tip Switch vacuum, like the other flatbed and roll to roll printers from swissQprint. In the case of Kudu, it is divided into 260 zones, which gives the operator simple and selective control of the vacuum. Kudu, like all swissQprint flatbed printers, is expandable with a roll-to-roll option.
