|FLAAR begins to evaluate the EFI VUTEk HS100PRO uv combo roll to roll printer|
We see the VUTEk printers in the booth of SAGA when we attend SGI (Sign Middle East). We also see EFI VUTEk printers in the booth of Fleksmedia when we attend Sign Istanbul. We see the EFI VUTEk printers at APPPEXPO in Shanghai every year, and at both ISA, SGIA, and GraphExpo.
During APPPEXPO 2014, EFI VUTEk exhibited a both roll and rigid materials printer, the HS100PRO, able to produce applications such as:
The HS100PRO features a 5.08 cm diameter for media thickness, being able to print on the applications listed above, and also by a 3.2 m print width. The HS100PRO is a roll-to roll plus flatbed printer which handles 8 colors and a multi-layer white with an option of having a matte or gloss finish to increase a photographic image quality. All this is managed by using Seiko printheads with a 12 picolitter drop size, using their selected ink.
What kind of people and print shops tend to buy an EFI VUTEk printer?
We visit print shops around the world and have been to several which have switched to EFI. Two were HP shops before and both switched to EFI VUTEk and were pleased and content. One was considering buying a second VUTEk. We have also visited printing companies who previously had a nice Durst Rho printer, yet they switched to EFI VUTEk.
The owner of a Gandinnovations flatbed also switched to a VUTEk printer and was soon considering a second EFI printer. He said what was noticeable about EFI was that they offered all the software that you needed, including MIS.
We have visited printing companies in the UAE, South Africa, and USA all of whom shared their experiences with us. The team of SAGA provided access to one of their customers in the Middle East.
