Karibu complements the existing machinery at Stiefel Digitalprint and handles various kinds of roll-to-roll orders. Managing Director Bernhard Stiefel is happy, saying, "As expected, Karibu delivers impeccable quality and is a reliable all-rounder." Although the new roll-to-roll printer currently spends much of its time producing various PVC tarpaulins, it also gets to process wallpapers, a broad swathe of different textiles and backlit media. "The day-and-night applications are fantastic," enthuses Stiefel.
Karibu has special features that ensure high efficiency. The operator, Dennis Weinrich, points out in particular the cassette system and material handling: "Roll changes are fast and easy. Working with Karibu is a real pleasure, it’s such a user-friendly printer." He also appreciates the edge hold-down devices, which ensure trouble-free processing of thin textiles and widths of wallpaper.
