Fogra, a research institute for media technologies, has tested the swissQprint Nyala series LED UV large format printer according to ISO 20690:2018. This new standard specifies methods for determining the energy consumption of digital printers, allowing for a comparison of the operating costs and ecological footprints of such machines.

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, noting a Nyala is capable of turning out a maximum of 206 square metres per hour. The “outstanding energy efficiency” certificate for Nyala applies to all other swissQprint machines that use LED curing due their similar construction. In order to model realistic system usage, the standardized measurement includes four different printer statuses. To ensure the results are consistent, the experts used four different printing modes several times with a standardized print file.
