EFI introduced new technologies at this year's FESPA Global Expo in Berlin. EFI unveiled its next-generation hybrid flatbed/roll platform technology – the EFI VUTEk h series printers built from the ground up to offer higher quality, more capabilities and better productivity up to 109 boards per hour.
EFI's exhibit also features the launch of a breakthrough industrial textile pigment ink technology for direct-to-textile production. The new EFI Reggiani pigment ink technology gives users a faster, environmentally friendly production process with inline polymerisation that requires less water, less energy and less processing time, with no washing or steaming needed. In addition, the ink's excellent fastness properties and high printability sharpness will allow printing on a wide range of fabrics with the fine-detail designs. The new pigment textile technology completes the outstanding range of innovations EFI Reggiani has presented over the past year, with unparalleled new products including the FLEXY digital printer launched at last year's FESPA tradeshow and the brand-new EFI Reggiani COLORS printer launched last month.
The new VUTEk h series of 3.2-metre wide hybrid LED printers launched at FESPA is the culmination of EFI's decades of experience in signage and graphics production technologies as a leading manufacturer and developer of UV and LED inkjet superwide-format printers and inks. The printers' new, high-velocity 7-picolitre UltraDrop Technology greyscale printhead imaging delivers precision dot placement and consistency from print to print at high production speeds. The printers offer four- and eight-colour printing modes plus white, as well as five-layer print capability in a single pass.
The new VUTEk h3 model on display at FESPA offers maximum throughput of up to 74 boards per hour. The h5 model, which is available direct from EFI or as field upgrade to the h3 model, can produce up to 109 boards per hour.
