Impala. The name of the new secret weapon for the graphic industry and industrial companies who place their bets on up-to-date printing technology. Universal and modular, this premium inkjet system is future-oriented and multi-talented when it comes to applications. It is robust, works with exceeding precision and delivers outstanding print quality – because Impala is Swiss-made through and through. Moreover, a maximum printing speed of 134 m2/hr makes it the leader in its class.
Versatile and robust, Impala is a flatbed printing system that is expandable as required. For example, the standard CMYK may be supplemented by as many as five additional channels – including industrial protective lacquers, or primer for printing onto media like anodised aluminium and glass that have traditionally resisted UV inkjet printing. The UV-hardening ink set adheres to a highly diverse range of materials and does not crack even during trimming. A steplessly adjustable vacuum system retains standard panels just as securely as heat-sensitive substrates and fabrics. The printing table, anodised for easy maintenance, can carry media as heavy as 400 kg. In contrast to this heavy duty construction, printing is with absolute micrometre precision. Solid colours without banding are a particular speciality of Impala.
Impala Options can be added at anytime:
Breathtaking print speed
Whether there is rigid or flexible media under the jets, Impala can operate in draft mode that prints at an impressive 134 m2/hr and yet produces highly presentable results. Performance in production mode is an efficient 67 m2/hr.
Remarkable substrate dimensions
Impala prints panels up to 2.5 m × 4 m (with Board Option) and 50 mm thick – and this with surprisingly modest space requirements.
Four to nine colour channels
The standard CMYK is expandable by a further five channels: light colours for natural reproduction of skin tones, white, varnish, primer or Pantone spot colours. All of them adhere optimally to many different materials: acrylic, (rigid foam) PVC, polyester, Poly-carbonate, polystyrene, Dibond, flexible foam panels, wood, mesh, banners, vinyl films, glass etc.
UV-hardening inks adhere to acrylic, dibond, wood, blueprints, polyester, polycarbonate, polystyrene, high-density PVC, vinyl films, flexible foam panels and – with primer – even to glass, anodised aluminium and similar special materials.
Targeted suction power
The vacuum system is infinitely adjustable so masking of the print table is largely unnecessary. A higher-powered vacuum option is also available for industrial applications.
White ink has a well-known tendency for sedimentation. Impala keeps it agitated. Reliable print results are thus assured, regardless of how often white is actually used.
Multi-purpose registration pins
The simple, quickly set registration pins are a unique feature. Next to defining the zero-origin, they also provide additional mechanical attachment points: format-independent, with as many as required to make efficient use of the printing table area.
Made in Switzerland
Developed and manufactured in Switzerland, Impala is all about precision, long service life and robust quality right down to the details.
