swissQprint’s Karibu conserves energy

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 and has been accredited in respect of its energy efficiency.

Tested by experts at Fogra against the ISO 20690.2018 standard, the Karibu scored even higher than the company’s Nyala flatbed printer, which swissQprint tested last year and which was also rated for its ‘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 standardised measurement includes four different printer statuses. To ensure that results are consistent, the experts used three different printing modes several times with a standardised print file. For example, Karibu in its most productive speed printing mode applies 71 square metres to the substrate per kilowatt hour.
