Polytype America Corporation (PAC) has announced that the swissQ Impala Flatbed inkjet printer just got better!: light C and light M join the standard CMYK color channels, accentuated by a new orange spot color, and rounded off by varnish and white. Outfitted with the existing roll option plus a new board option, this star printer is ready to make a splash at ISA.
35% larger color space - Orange, green and violet are now available as optional spot colors and are especially useful for printing Pantone shades. In numerical terms, they extend the color space by 20 percent. The remaining 15 percent come from another innovation: a silk gloss printing mode that adds sheen to results. This option is also available for existing systems, requiring nothing more than a free-of-charge update to the operating software.
3D effects with thermoforming ink - Advertising materials gain impact with a depth dimension – but only when the ink used is able to make it through the process without stress whitening. The new swissQprint thermoforming ink in four colors is stretchable in any way and configurable as a supplement to the standard CMYK.
Continuous flatbed for heavyweight items - Oversized formats up to 13 ft. long and weighing up to 221 lbs. glide effortlessly across the printing table without a conveyor belt. The answer to this puzzle: a cushion of air between the vacuum table and the printing medium. The astonishing board option can be readily retrofitted to existing printing machines.
"PAC is thrilled to have these new features added to the existing swissQ Impala Flat-Bed printer" states Jim Cain, Director of Sales-DIGITAL for PAC, " with the additional color gamut added through orange, green and violet spot colors for Skin tones, etc. and the new "Silk Gloss" print mode, swissQ has added to their already industry leading position."
