swissQprint Launches Two Machines

The Nyala LED introduced by swissQprint.
swissQprint has introduced the Impala LED and Nyala LED. With a mechanically-perfected foundation, these models operate with even greater precision than their predecessors. LED curing makes them hugely versatile, highly profitable and environmentally friendly.

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 models were introduced at FESPA 2017.

There is a series of mechanical improvements in Impala LED and Nyala LED. Two examples: the beam architecture has been reworked for even better stability, and swissQprint has ensured that the flatbed is indeed perfectly flat over its entire surface - 3.2 x 2 metres with Nyala LED and 2.5 x 2 metres with Impala LED. All those points combine to create ideal conditions for pinpoint-precise droplet placement and a homogeneous print image, while maintaining the usual high productivity: Nyala LED achieves a maximum of 206 square metres per hour, while Impala LED achieves 180 square metres.

Impala LED and Nyala LED are real flatbed printers, expandable with options as required. There is a roll to roll option, for example. A new control element ensures even more precise measuring results and impeccable printing. This, combined with cool LED curing, makes for stress-free processing of heat-sensitive roll media, because the material warps less.

LED curing extends the general diversity of applications. Thin films, paper, board and delicate textiles, for example, join the repertoire of material that the digital printer can handle. In spite of this, there is no need for expensive special LED ink: swissQprint UV inks cure both under mercury vapour lamps and under the new LED system. In the latter case, the output software automatically adjusts the UV output power to the material and the printing speed. This also helps users to achieve consistently optimal curing results.

swissQprint launched a 4x4 version of its existing Impala and Nyala series in early 2017. Impala LED and Nyala LED are optionally available in this version as well, meaning that they come configured with quadruple CMYK for impressive quality at high printing speed. This makes them suited to users requiring high output with uncompromising quality and vivid colours. High-quality POS items, displays, posters, banners, backlit and other similarly demanding media are just some of the applications.
