This past May swissQprint presented two new large format printers at FESPA 2017, the Impala LED and Nyala LED.
In previous years these two models have been only being able to cure by using mercury-arc lamps, though with LED it brings a versatile, highly profitable and environmentally friendly range of applications for clients with a preference for LED curing.
‘There is a lot more to Impala LED and Nyala LED than LED. On this foundation, we then put the LED technology for even greater precision.”
Maurus Zeller – swissQprint Product Manager
LED curing is claimed to significantly reduce power consumption. Less heat build-up in turn increases the variety of materials that can be printed, enabling new applications. The lamp system is maintenance-free, so consumables and downtimes for maintenance are no longer necessary.
The 3.2×2 metre flatbed, Nyala LED can take on board any commonplace format and handle virtually any type of material and thanks to LED curing, trouble with heat-sensitive substrates are no longer present, since the lamps keep a cool head, even while the printer is at its busiest. swissQprint claims that the Impala LED lamps deliver the same life expectancy as the printer, saving considerable expenses on maintenance.
The great advantage of the new swissQprint printers is the variety of versions and options depending on the business each of the clients are looking for, for example the 4×4 Impala LED delivers a production of 180 m2/h, the double from the basic version. It also has the option of a dedicated roll-to-roll, with a table across front and the roll, delivering an automatized load of materials.
swissQprint gives to the large format industry market a huge variety of structure qualifying to deliver great performance of user needs. We at FLAAR Reports were able to take a look at both of this printers back in FESPA 2017, and we are glad that this Swedish manufacturer has opened up lucrative market areas for business and make operators lives easy, consuming little electricity and virtually maintenance-free.
