Switzerland-based large-format printer manufacturer swissQprint announces that the Germany-based Fogra Research Institute for Media Technologies has tested the company’s Nyala series large-format LED UV printer, and gave it a rating of “excellent” based on ISO Standard 20690: 2018.

According to swissQprint, this new ISO standard specifies methods for determining the energy consumption of digital printers and thus allows comparison of the operating costs and the ecological footprints of such machines.

During the test, in order to model realistic system usage, the standardized measurement includes four different printer statuses. To ensure that results are consistent the experts used four different printing modes several times with a standardized print file.

The “outstanding energy efficiency” certificate for Nyala implicitly applies to all other swissQprint machines that use LED curing due their similar construction, the company says.
