The show showcases a range of EFI production LED Inkjet, dye sublimation inkjet and Fiery digital frontend (DFE) options. These technologies are unique and have been awarded with numerous awards.
PRINTING United will present the EFI VUTEk FabriVU Plus series, which includes the VUTEk FabriVU340i+ soft-signaling printer with inline fixation EFI, at booth #C8107. This new series offers the next generation of high-end dye sublimation efficiency and opportunities.
Designed for high-end direct-to-fabric or transfer paper production with resolutions up to 2,400 dots per inch (dpi) and three-level grayscale printing with 7pL, 12pL and 18pL drop sizes, the FabriVU Plus series achieves remarkable quality in dye-sub printing – with better saturation and more density for soft signage and flag printing – thanks to new electronics as well as eight high-performance printheads in a new CMYK x 2 configuration.
The new soft signage printer is one of many high-end EFI display graphics inkjet products at the show.
• The 3.2-meter wide EFI Pro 30h hybrid roll/flatbed LED printer in EFI’s booth stands out as the ideal solution for businesses targeting production sign and display graphics as a growth opportunity. It can print at resolutions of up to 1,200 DPI and four colors, plus two channels of white, at speeds of up to 230 m/h.
• The 3.5-meter wide EFI VUTEk Q3r LED inkjet printer on display – the fastest superwide-format roll-to-roll solution in its class – is part of a VUTEk Q series that also includes a 5.2-meter wide Q5r model. A new inline UltraClear Coat option for the VUTEk Q3r, Q5r and other EFI roll-to-roll LED inkjet printers offers superior protection for outdoor graphics and high-quality gloss or matte spot enhancement in premium POP work – capabilities that earned UltraClear Coat the 2022 PRINTING United Alliance Pinnacle Award for UV digital inks.
