EFI (Booth 2000) is demonstrating the EFI Rastek T1000 wide-format flatbed printer, combining high-speed and high-definition for best-in-class image quality and price performance.
The Rastek T1000 is capable of generating sharp text and photographic image quality using 4-color-plus-white UV-curable inks. It prints in CMYK at speeds up to 400 sq. ft./hour and resolution up to1200x900 dpi, and experiences minimal reduction in speed when using white ink for over-, under- and spot-printing. The Rastek T1000 uses 6 Piezo Electric gray-scale print-heads with the versatility of 8 drop-sizes range from 6-42 pL for fine detail and/or fast prints to suit the job at hand. The system’s exceptional white ink capability provides completely saturated colors and smooth gradients, enabling print businesses to differentiate from the competition by offering a unique application set to their customers.
A stationary, three-zone vacuum table with retractable media registration pins gives the Rastek T1000 the versatility to quickly and easily handle a wide range of rigid materials up to 2-inches thick, including acrylic, aluminum, Fome-Cor, glass and plywood. Its table area of 52x98 inches is ideal for creating head-turning posters, banners, POP advertisements, membrane-switches and packaging applications, as well as indoor and outdoor signage.
