Konica Minolta Business Solutions (Canada) Ltd. has announced that Winnipeg, Man.-based Intergraphics Decal Ltd. (Intergraphics) is the first company in Canada to acquire an EFI Pro 32r Plus wide format printer. With this installation, Intergraphics says it expects to triple its current output capacity of large format materials.

The EFI Pro 32r Plus is a 10.5-foot roll-to-roll LED printer that can manage a number of flexible substrates, including textiles and double-sided applications. The device can reach printing speeds of up to 256 square metres per hour (2,756 square-feet per hour) with quick and easy media loading. The device’s resolution and colour accuracy are industry-leading; using EFI’s patented UltraDrop technology which uses native 7pL print heads with multi-drop addressability, the device achieves a true resolution of 847 dpi. The machine also boasts lower running costs, due to more efficient ink consumption and lower power bills.

“In the digital printing space, the EFI Pro 32r Plus’ wide colour gamut is second to none,” said Conrad Desender, president and CEO of Intergraphics Decal Ltd. “We’re impressed with its ability to accurately hit precise corporate colours. The capabilities of the machine will now allow us to deliver the most accurate colour possible for our customers in a shorter amount of time than other wide-format machines we have assessed in the marketplace.”
