NOVOSIBIRSK, RUSSIA | IQDEMY, a group of leading companies uniting the world’s best practices and expertise in the digital large-format marketplace, introduces the Swiss Maglev UV LED printer featuring Ricoh Gen5 printheads at Fespa China 2013, November 18–20, in Shanghai.
“With the introduction of the Swiss Maglev, we are combining the best of our technologies in order to bring a highly productive and reliable solution to our customers and franchisees,” says Vlad Mirchev, founder of IQDEMY. “Environmentally friendly UV LED curing is already employed in our Swiss series of printers and our patented magnetic levitation technology. We are so confident about our technology that we issue a ten-year warranty for the new printer….”
Substrates such as films, foils, Styrofoam, wax, polyester, aluminum, and more can be printed at speeds to 150 sq mph in draft mode,. Driven by the Caldera RIP and DPS front end, the Swiss Maglev accommodates seven colors (CMYKLcLm+W), and optionally varnish as the 8th color.
The Swiss Maglev features an automatic ink recirculation system said to extend the life of the printheads; an automatic material positioning system and vacuum table to prevent material shifts during printing; roll-to-roll feed system for printing on flexible materials on rolls; automatic safety system that prevents printheads from coming into contact with curved parts of substrates; and automated cleaning and thermal stabilization of the ink system.
