DataMaster Lab Print Awards 2019 Award #8 – The GREEN MFP Award

Award #8: The GREEN MFP Award

DataMaster Lab is very proud to announce the DataMaster Lab Awards 2019. This year there are some new Award categories.

DataMaster Lab is the European centre of print expertise. DataMaster Lab has been testing printing equipment since 2009. The teams have tested multifunction printers, digital presses and A4 machines too. They have carried out over 10,000 individual tests on some 500 machines. The DataMaster Lab evaluations system reviews over 200,000 different results.

Edward Bilson, Technical Director of DataMaster Lab said, “We are delighted to announce the second edition of the DataMaster Lab Print Awards. Last year’s Awards were so well received because they are about performance in the real-world scenarios that end customers really care about. Our evaluations are all based on data from our own Lab which is available to DataMaster Onlinesubscribers, so the whole world can see that they are both independent and credible. As such, they might differ from other industry awards – but you can rely on ours.“

The Awards are for A4/Letter and A3/Ledger MFPs in their various market segments.

These GREEN Awards are for the machines which, due to their design and manufacture, the technologies employed and their manufacturers’ distribution strategies, have the least overall impact on the environment.

This Award is not just about electrical consumption. We take into account accreditations for manufacturing facilities, levels of noxious emissions – and the nature and lifetime of a machine’s consumables. When one considers the carbon footprint of a consumable item’s manufacture, transportation, distribution and its final resting place in a landfill site, one realizes that all consumables need to be designed with the environment in mind, and have the longest lifetime possible. The winners of DataMaster Lab’s GREEN Award have the least impact on our precious environment.
