swissQprint: certified energy efficiency

Fogra, the Research Institute for Media Technologies has tested the highest-performing swissQprint large format printer according to ISO Standard 20690. The results demonstrate Swiss UV inkjet system's outstanding energy efficiency.

Fogra experts that act on behalf of Swiss manufacturer swissQprint have tested a Nyala series LED UV printer according to ISO 20690 2018. This new standard specifies methods for defining the energy consumption of digital printers and therefore provides a comparison of the operating costs and ecological footprints of such machines.

Outstanding Energy Efficiency

After completing various evaluation tests at swissQprint, the Fogra experts gave an “excellent” rating regarding the energy efficiency of the Nyala large format printer. For example, the printer produces 65 square metres per kilowatt-hour in speed printing mode. This evidently has nothing to do with productivity as a Nyala can turn out a maximum of 206 square metres per hour.

Standardised Measurement

The standardised measurement includes 4 different printer statuses to model realistic system usage. To guarantee that results are consistent, the experts used 4 different printing modes numerous times with a standardised print file.

The “outstanding energy efficiency” certificate for Nyala implicitly applies to all other swissQprint machines that use LED curing due to their similar construction and particularly since Nyala is the highest-performing model in the range.
