Swiss wide format developer swissQprint is set to launch Karibu, its first reel-to-reel wide format print system, with Fespa in May slated for the launch.

The swissQprint technology is supplied in Australia by Pozitive, its managing director Philip Trumble tells Print21 that all will be revealed at the show. He says, “We don’t have many details but what we do know is that it will have the renowned swissQprint quality and reliability.”

The company claims that Karibu ‘has features and capabilities like no other large format printer and comes packed with all the experience we have gained over decades of developing and manufacturing high-quality flatbed printers’.

Trumble says, “We will be taking orders at the show, when we will know what the production schedule will be.”

The swissQprint flatbeds are positioned at the higher end of the market, and have found a niche in Australia with companies such as CMP, EasySigns and Mediapoint installing the technology.

The Swiss based company was established in 2008 by four designers who were working for Zund when it decided to pull out of printers and focus on developing cutters. The quartet decided to strike out on their own, and formed swissQprint. Trumble has been the local sales and service supplier since 2012.
