swissQprint is bringing an LED model of the Oryx printer to market. It will be available from November 2017.
LED technology extends the range of applications, is highly economical and leaves only a small environmental footprint. ‘LED curing will prevail’ – that is the firm conviction at swissQprint. The market confirms it: ‘Since Impala LED and Nyala LED were launched, we see the bulk of customers preferring the LED solution over mercury vapour lamps,’ claimed Maurus Zeller, head of product management.
Adding to the benefits of LED technology, the company has brought new mechanical refinements to its current generation of machines. This gives them yet greater precision and process stability. Now the latest Oryx LED with its maximum output of 65 square metres per hour and a 2.5 × 2 metre print bed can score here as well. It joins Impala LED, which shares the same dimensions while outputting up to 180 square metres per hour, and Nyala LED, with 206 square metres per hour from a 3.2 × 2 metre print bed. With this trio of printers, swissQprint covers practically every level of productivity that a print services provider might have now, or aim for in future. And this not least because the systems are adaptable and expandable.
‘The printer grows with the business,’ explained Maurus. Each machine is built to customer requirements and may have options added at any time thereafter. This could mean an individual ink configuration – swissQprint machines offer nine colour channels – or the types of applications it can handle: choices here include an option for roll media, the board option for oversized formats up to four metres long, and even a loading and unloading robot. The idea is to give users a system that always matches their needs and budget.
