FLAAR-REPORTS testing and evaluating EFI and VUTEk superwide printers

Posted Feb 27, 2019

Although we obviously attend the major printer and signage expos around the world, you can get a better understanding of a brand by visiting its factory and demo room. About two years ago Jose Melgar of FLAAR-REPORTS was in the EFI inkjet printer factory and now in February 2020, Dr Nicholas (Hellmuth) is at this facility. Here you can meet not only the physical printing machines, but you can meet the software engineers and learn what’s inside the brain of the printer’s operating system (plus these printers also have Fiery RIP systems).

The following range of superwide printers are manufactured here (plus the earlier Matan models on special order):

VUTEk 3r+ and VUTEk 5r+, seven colors with optional white

EFI Pro 32r+, allows you to enter the world of decades of experience and technology at noticeably less cost.

EFI VUTEk D3r and D5r, CMYK and optional white and also simultaneously optional clear (“clear” on an EFI VUTEk printer is a noticeably better material than merely “varnish” of other brands of printers).

All three models feature the most popular 7 picoliter printheads on the market.

EFI VUTEk also has factories in several other parts of the world, including USA and Spain.
