The SwissQprint production team has celebrated a special milestone at the company’s headquarters in Switzerland, with the sale of the 1000th Nyala UV flatbed printer.

The Nyala was launched in 2012 and according to SwissQprint has been the best-selling model in its category for eight consecutive years. The company characterises the printer as ‘the symbiosis of premium print quality, multifunctionality and efficiency.’ Due to its print bed dimensions and modularity, the Nyala offers considerable scope in terms of applications and formats that it can handle. Carmen Eicher, chief sales and marketing officer at SwissQprint commented, ‘our customers also appreciate the high system availability and low energy consumption.’

SwissQprint users configure their printer according to present needs, and can expand and change the configuration later on. Christof Lüchinger, production manager at SwissQprint said, ‘Right from the start, practically every customer has ordered the roll-to-roll option and thus, so to speak, gets two printers in one.’

Other add-ons include the dual roll option, the board option for panels up to four metres long, the glass option and the Rob loading and unloading robot for unmanned shifts. The Nyala has nine configurable colour channels, so in addition to CMYK there is capacity for light colours, white, effect varnish, orange, neon and a primer.
