Newest Karibu Roll-to-Roll Given "Outstanding Energy Efficiency" Rating
Following in the footprints of the swissQprint Nyala flatbed printer, the new Karibu roll to roll printer is the latest model to undergo tests as specified by the ISO 20690 standard. The result once again: outstanding energy efficiency.
Confirmation comes from experts at Fogra: the new Karibu roll to roll printer from swissQprint is highly energy efficient. When they tested it as specified by the ISO 20690:2018 standard, Karibu scored even higher than the Nyala flatbed printer. swissQprint had this model put through its paces last year, when it was also given the rating "outstanding energy efficiency".
The ISO 20690 standard specifies methods for determining the energy consumption of digital printers and thus allows comparison of their operating costs and ecological footprints.
In order to model realistic system usage, the standardized measurement includes four different printer statuses. To ensure that results are consistent, the experts used three different printing modes several times with a standardized print file. For example, Karibu in its most productive "speed" printing mode applies 71 sq. m. to the substrate per kilowatt hour.
