New precision software from swissQprint avoids reprints after a crash

Written by Colin Gillman on 16 February 2017.

The moving print head carriage of a swissQprint UV printer immediately halts should it come into contact with a person or object. The system also stops instantly if there is a danger of the print head grazing the substrate, typically where there are undulations or raised edges. People and print heads are thus protected. But what about the print item and the work carried out so far? This is where swissQprint has figured out a new software feature that looks set to save users both time and money by avoiding reprints. 

After a crash, two mouse clicks by the operator make printing resume at exactly the same point where the print head carriage came to rest, and this can often be right in the middle of the pass. The output software resumes operations at the exact same point on the printing pass, without leaving any tell-tale traces, and helps users to avoid rejects and rework.

The new feature is already integrated into new systems and is available to existing customers as a software update.
