EFI announced that the company is presenting its revolutionary, third-generation ceramic printer at Ceramics China, Guangzhou. Representing a new generation of inkjet printers for ceramics, the Cretaprint C3 multipurpose digital ceramic decoration printer leverages five years of research and development and combines customer feedback with 15 years of experience in the marketplace. The EFI Cretaprint C3 is on display this week at Ceramics China at the EFI Cretaprint stand (Hall 8.1, stand K215).
“EFI Cretaprint is uniquely focused on innovation and reliability in the complete process of digital printing,” said Victor Blasco, general manager, EFI Cretaprint. “At Ceramics China we will demonstrate the third-generation Cretaprint C3, the industry’s only truly upgradable inkjet printer, together with our Fiery proServer color management solution, which offers amazing capabilities to our customers. The combination of the two will bring an unparalleled return on investment for our customers.”
The new C3 is an upgradable printer that adapts to the businesses’ changing needs as it grows. It offers exceptional reliability and up to eight bars, with different print heads, some for printing and others with stronger ink discharge to apply special effects.
Together with the C3, EFI Cretaprint presents the Fiery proServer, the first dedicated color management solution for the ceramic market that automates ceramic tile design, prototyping and color separation. At the same, it enables the production of high-quality color tiles at different print locations under varying conditions including glazing, ink application, resolution and kiln temperature.
The Fiery ceramic workflow serves as the bridge between ceramic print production and business management. The workflow reduces waste, increases productivity and boosts profitability through measurement-based processes that eliminate the trial-and-error approach to color management.
