Published

Fogra experts acting 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 determining the energy consumption of digital printers and thus allows comparison of the operating costs and ecological footprints of such machines.

Outstanding energy efficiency

After evaluating the tests at swissQprint, the Fogra experts gave a rating of "excellent" to the energy efficiency of the Nyala large format printer. For example, Nyala produces 65 square metres per kilowatt-hour in speed printing mode. This obviously has nothing to do with productivity: a Nyala is capable of turning out a maximum of 206 square metres per hour.

 

Standardised measurement

In order to model realistic system usage, the standardised measurement includes four different printer statuses. To ensure that results are consistent, the experts used four different printing modes several 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 their similar construction and especially since Nyala is the highest-performing model in the range.
