Only a few months after the launch of its fourth generation of machines, swissQprint innovates again and promises increased reactivity, agility and performance. 

The Kudu was launched at FESPA 2022 in Berlin, and became the most universal flatbed printer of swissQprint’s large-format range. 

In terms of creativity, versatility and productivity, the Kudu ticks all the boxes of a high-end model with 10 color channels and its 3.2x2m table. In addition to CMYK, users can supplement the process colors with up to 6 additional channels: light colors, white, varnish, orange, neon or primer for maximum application diversity.  

Kudu is equipped with state-of-the-art printhead technology, with an addressable print resolution of up to 1,350 dpi,” explains Carmen Eicher, Director of Sales and Marketing at swissQprint.
