Drupa: SwissQprint Launches Robot and Sells 12 Printers




swissQprint robot: giving greater capacity

Rob, the swissQprint solution for unattended printing, had his world premiere at drupa. This compact robot augments any swissQprint flatbed printer and loads it with media. Automation optimises utilisation and hence returns.

drupa 2016, Düsseldorf: oblivious to the hustle and bustle of the show going on around him, Rob stayed on the job unerringly and without ever taking a break. To an awed public, the new robot demonstrated how unattended printing works with swissQprint: he precisely loaded boards onto an Impala 2 flatbed printer and just as carefully stacked them up after printing.

Gainful free time
Working in concert with the printer, Rob handles extra shifts without supervision and takes over repetitive work. The user gains time for other tasks and has fewer hours to work. Despite greater utilisation of the printer and optimised delivery times, the work-life balance of personnel stays on the level. Higher output also has a positive impact on financial results, not least because neither robot nor printer demand allowances for night shift or weekend working.

Independent and always reliable
Rob is ready to go within barely ten minutes. The user docks him to the swissQprint flatbed printer, whereupon he undergoes auto-initialisation and connects with the output software. The software controls both printer and robot. Whether the user now switches to other tasks during the day, takes a break or goes home in the evening, he can rely on the printer-robot team. At any time or at unsocial hours, the duo takes on the shift with consistent precision and efficiency. And after the work is done, Rob is content to be stashed away in a small corner.

Freedom and safety
Rob is capable of handling many different kinds of material. So users retain their accustomed great freedom of applications that swissQprint large format printers offer. Incidentally, the printer stays readily accessible. Safety is also a given because sensors monitor his operating radius. Rob slows down should somebody or something enter it. And in case of contact, he freezes on the spot.


Integrated solution
swissQprint strives to provide comprehensive solutions for customers. The robot is fully integrated and compatible with all swissQprint models. Existing customers can also automate their printer later on. So yet again, swissQprint is staying true to its modular approach: every customer should benefit from new developments to the greatest extent possible.
