EFI Unveils Four Printers for Signage

April 26, 2016  By PrintAction Staff

Electronics For Imaging introduced four printers at the 2016 ISA International Sign Expo, including the North American debut of a new VUTEk FabriVU aqueous-ink soft-signage printer series. The company also debuted new MIS software to expand its Productivity Suite technologies in the display graphics arena.
The new 3.2-metre EFI VUTEk LX3 Pro hybrid roll/flatbed LED inkjet printer is rated for a throughput of up to 3,420 square feet (318 square metres) per hour. The printer also offers grayscale imaging and LED technology.

The Quantum LXr LED printer, a dedicated roll-to-roll printer, described by EFI as an economical alternative to latex printers, features 7-picoliter imaging and print resolutions up to 1,200 dpi in four colours with optional white.
The 65-inch H1625-SD is an entry-level UV hybrid production printer that uses EFI SuperDraw UV ink for near-photographic imaging direct to thermoformable substrates. The printer runs four colours plus white with grayscale imaging.
The EFI VUTEk FabriVU 340 is a 3.4-metre dispersed dye-sublimation ink printer developed by EFI Reggiani, which EFI acquired in 2015. The new FabriVU product line, which is also available in a 1.8-metre size, runs water-based inks and is aimed at soft signage and banner applications.

At the ISA show, EFI also debuted what the company describes as a major release of the EFI Midmarket Print Suite MIS workflow, version 4.0. The new workflow software suite features tools aimed at the signage community. The suite features EFI’s Pace MIS software at its core and includes a range of out-of-the-box, integrated systems that are certified by EFI.
