VUTEk Superwide Digital Inkjet Technology from EFI
The drive to innovate is nothing new to EFI™ VUTEk®. Just as it ushered in the superwide revolution, the company remains committed to turning vision into industry firsts. VUTEk innovation is a key part, and result, of its unique DNA. And it would prove itself time and again in leading the industry to new production focused technologies that include the industries broadest product portfolio of solvent and UV-curing based printers that drive higher quality and higher speed output.
Like many innovation pioneers who consistently define and redefine our world with new and unexpected leaps in technology, EFI VUTEk is poised to open new superwide applications and print markets that will allow companies to differentiate themselves long into the foreseeable future.
Solvent to UV-curing. A matter of image quality and profitability.
If you could get improved image quality in superwide format output at greater economy, would you do it? EFI VUTEk engineers began the design and construction of a new breed of printer with the obvious answer in mind—“Yes.” The result was the VUTEk family of QS digital inkjet superwide printers. They offer print shops the opportunity to transition from traditional solvent-based printing to higher-quality output using UV-curing inks. The QS family of digital superwide printers include three advanced systems: the hybrid and highly-versatile VUTEk QS2000 and QS3200, and the VUTEk QS3200r roll-to-roll UV-curing printers.
The two-meter-wide VUTEk QS2000 and 3.2-meter QS3200 do nothing less than take print businesses around the world to digital inkjet profitability faster than any previous printer ever could—even though solvent ink may cost less. While solvent ink is less expensive, UV curable inks typically yield around 50% greater coverage of the media. Where a liter of solvent might cover 650 square meters of a particular substrate, UV will cover 1,000 square meters, so the actual production cost differences are to some extent illusory. UV also gives you an expanded choice of substrates, which can boost sales appeal and lower running costs. While cost-focused applications are a natural part of the market, successful printers complement this business with premium margin applications sold on a differentiated approach.
The VUTEk QS3200r UV roll-to-roll digital printer enables larger, bolder graphic production and is redefining image quality in the traditional roll-to-roll segment. It opens up completely new market opportunities for businesses looking to fulfill customer needs for high-quality superwide graphics with the fastest possible turnaround on a variety of flexible substrates.
Achieving high production speeds and photorealistic quality is no longer an either or choice. The revolutionary VUTEk GS Series UV-curing printers combine High-Definition Print capability, high production speeds and expanded application capabilities so print shops can say yes to jobs large and small, and stay ahead of the competition.
The VUTEk G3200 3.2-meter flatbed and roll-to-roll hybrid UV printer’s versatility expands the reach of superwide printing into new industries and applications with breakthrough speeds and incredible 1000 dpi quality. It’s unique, in-line, three-layer white-printing capability enables a whole new range of creative, high-value applications, and is perfect for long or short runs in high quality and at high speeds, offering the highest ROI in the industry.
The VUTEk GS5000r roll-to-roll UV printer redefines 5-meter printing by combining Point-of-Purchase quality with billboard production speeds. Users can efficiently produce applications such as exhibition graphics and digital textiles, as well as billboards, banners and other traditional 5-meter applications.
