15 years of swissQprint

September 20, 2022

The Swiss designer and manufacturer of high-quality wide format printers is celebrating its 15th anniversary. A small company with six people has grown into a company that is internationally active and has 200 employees.

Mimaki Europe, the leading manufacturer of inkjet printers and cutting systems, will once again celebrate luxury packaging at LUXE PACK Monaco (Grimaldi Forum, Monaco – 03-05 October, Stand DD02Bis). Exhibiting at the foremost show for premium packaging, Mimaki will demonstrate how brand owners and packaging professionals can achieve first-class, one-off luxury packaging with Mimaki’s advanced printing technology.

Welshpool Printing Group (WPG) has purchased a Mimaki JFX200-2513 EX from CMYUK. The need to provide a greater diversity of signage in tandem with faster turnaround times were the twin drivers of this investment.

Ricoh UK is delighted to announce a series of major software updates for the Ricoh Pro T7210, Ricoh Pro TF6250 and Ricoh Pro TF6251 UV flatbed printers, available free-of-charge for existing users.

Key industry players are coming together at swissQprint's UK headquarters to demonstrate a more affordable, sustainable approach to workflow and print & cut technology in the drive towards net zero.

swissQprint will be present on booth C6415 at Printing United on October 19–21, 2022. The Swiss manufacturer is to exhibit new developments in high-quality UV flatbed and roll to roll printing.

PDQ Printing Services of Morley, Leeds has installed a Gibson GT-F3020 LED-UV flatbed printer, supplied by SOS (Service Offset Supplies). Proprietor Alison Blyth says the new machine has primarily been purchased in order to meet a growing demand for the production of outdoor signs - especially for fairground clients - which the Gibson will print directly to Corex board.

With the recent investment in an Anapurna H2500i LED hybrid printer, offset and digital printing company Die Keure sets the counter to four. Denis Rau, large-format manager: “Excellent print quality, but also the ease of use and versatility of these robust printers were once again decisive.”

Jersey-based Mailmate has installed a Kongsberg X24 Edge digital cutting table, Mimaki UCJV300-160 UV LED printer with integrated cutter, and Mimaki JFX200-2513 EX UV LED flatbed from CMYUK.

Canon’s large format graphics, roll-to-roll Colorado series is known for giving customers a choice between a velvety matte or vibrant glossy finish with just one ink set. Today at FESPA 2022, we are unveiling the next step for the Colorado series: FLXfinish+, the unique ability to print a mixed matte and gloss finish in one print, at the click of a button.

Individually printed glass elements are all the rage in interior design: for kitchen splashbacks, shower and room partitions, glass doors, lift cabin panelling, wall art, etc. For those already providing such services – and others with plans to do so – swissQprint has put together an interesting package: a mechanical solution for an efficient, clean process, supplemented by an ink set for optimum adhesion.

To start with, Agfa’s Jeti Tauro H3300 LED printers are now available with a varnish printing option. The Agfa varnish allows not only for the embellishment of a part of the print but also a full flood option that covers the entire print. This new technology allows for a bigger color gamut and is capable of printing 75 m²/h with varnish.

swissQprint has announced at short notice a new development to be launched at the Fespa Global Print Expo 2022 in Berlin. The company invites visitors to the world première at Hall 1.2, Stand C30 from 31 May to 3 June 2022. Until then, details stay as veiled as the product itself.

Redditch-based start-up Webb Print & Display (WP&D) has invested in an EFI VUTEk h3 printer from CMYUK. Several nationwide retail campaigns have been produced on the 3.2 hybrid UV LED printer, generating forward momentum for the business, and attracting new clients.

Ahead of their appearance at FESPA, under the banner 'Blueprint Live' Fujifilm's Acuity Prime and Acuity Ultra R2 wide format printers have each won iF Design awards.

With 13 dealer agreements in 7 European countries already agreed, Fujifilm is on the hunt for more partnerships to help boost its Acuity Prime sales even further. To help achieve this, the company has appointed Colm Garvey as its European Dealer Manager for wide format products.

New printers from EFI will be making waves at CMYUK’s forthcoming Printer Production Open House that takes place on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th May at its demonstration and training centre in Shrewsbury.

French printing software company Caldera has announced the official support of new swissQprint printers for CalderaRIP. These new swissQprint drivers expand CalderaRIP’s extensive list of supported peripherals for wide-format production.

Roland DGA Corporation has entered into an agreement to sell and distribute the Rotary Rack – a new, affordable, ultra-durable attachment that fits inside VersaUV LEF Series benchtop UV printers and makes printing directly onto cylindrical objects easier than ever.

Diversify in 2022

April 29, 2022

It doesn’t take an entrepreneurial expert to know that the world of business is constantly changing. Consumer habits change, technology improves and both the consumer world, and the business-to-business market, can change rapidly. So how can your business stay steady in this turbulent landscape? Evolve and diversify.

Fujifilm has formed an extensive strategic partnership with MCA Digital, a highly respected print solutions provider in Italy. Fujifilm's new Revoria Press PC1120 is a particular focus of the relationship, with MCA Digital's salesforce and contact network ideally placed to launch this machine into the Italian market.
