Swiss Performance Chemicals launches digital packaged solutions with focus on excellent productivity level at the lowest cost of ownership

At FESPA Berlin, May 15th to 18th 2018, SPC will introduce a full packaged solution for the sublimation transfer printing market and for outdoor blue back paper applications.


At SPC’s booth Hall 2.1 – C25, visitors will be able to see 2 digital production printing lines:

  • The first line is a packaged solution for the transfer paper printing segment based on our Panthera S4 digital printing machine equipped with 4 Kyocera inkjet printing heads. The Panthera S4 at 1.8 m width will be demonstrated with our premium sublimation Sublim C+ inks.

  • The second line is a packaged solution for the outdoor segment and specifically for the blue back paper application.  The Panthera S4 will run with the SPC pigment inks MXTR K+.


Demonstrations will be performed at over 240 sqm/h printing speed by our technical experts. The challenge of the whole digital printing system is to ensure sustainability in terms of print quality, color consistency and high productivity at the lowest cost of ownership.
