swissQprint presented two new large format printers at FESPA 2017: Impala LED and Nyala LED. There is a whole 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 × 2 meters with Nyala LED and 2.5 × 2 meters 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 sqm/h, Impala LED 180 sqm/h. 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 thus impeccable printing. This combined with cool LED curing makes for stress-free processing of heat-sensitive roll media, because the material warps less. Speaking of heat-sensitive media: 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 vapor 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 what the company calls a 4×4 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 colors. High-quality POS items, displays, posters, banners, backlit and other similarly demanding media are just some of the applications. Impala LED and Nyala LED are now available through the swissQprint distribution partner network in around 40 countries.
