swissQprint (Kriessern, Switzerland) has announced that the company is the only manufacturer of large-format UV printers to have the energy efficiency of its current range recertified, according to a press release from swissQprint.

This is the second time that swissQprint had its products tested for energy efficiency in accordance with the ISO 20690:2018 standard. Representatives of Fogra, the Research Institute for Media Technologies, measured and certified the power consumption of the swissQprint flatbed printers Kudu, Nyala 4, Nyala 4S and the roll-to-roll printers Karibu 2 and Karibu S in various print modes. The tests showed “top in class” energy efficiency for every machine. This means their power needs are very low in relation to performance, which saves costs and resources — per the press release.

The Swiss UV LED large-format printers consume an average of 2.2 kilowatt-hours of electricity, exactly the same as an average kettle or a two-hour video streaming session on a 65-in. 4K TV, calculated from the data center to the end device.

According to Fogra, swissQprint is so far the only manufacturer able to provide independent and standardized energy-efficiency proof for its products.
