EFI to showcase latest in digital print technology at SGIA Expo
EFI, a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, announced that it will showcase the latest in digital print technology at the upcoming SGIA Expo, October 7-9 in New Orleans, including the revolutionary VUTEk GS3200 and GS5000r and the industry leading QS3220 and QS3200r superwide printers, the Rastek H650 hybrid and T660 flatbed wide-format printers, and an array of incredible workflow solutions. EFI is a Platinum Sponsor of the 2009 SGIA Expo and will be exhibiting in booth 1901, immediately across from the main entrance.
"SGIA is among the top outlets for exhibiting technology and innovation in digital printing, and, in line with that, we'll be showing some incredible products this year," said EFI President, Fred Rosenzweig. "We're excited for SGIA attendees to see our VUTEk superwide sytems as well as our Rastek wide-format systems. We'll also be demonstrating digital workflow management from creation to print with the award-winning EFI Digital StoreFront, EFI PrintSmith, EFI Pace, and XFlow and XF solutions."
EFI's VUTEk Superwide Printers
EFI will be displaying four VUTEk superwide UV printers at SGIA, including the revolutionary VUTEk GS3200 3.2-meter flatbed and roll-to-roll hybrid UV printer, which achieves high production speeds and photorealistic quality without compromise, allowing businesses to achieve with one printer what would otherwise require two. With dual resolution capability, the GS3200 enables operators to select between 600 and 1000 dpi, and delivers output speeds of up to 2400 square feet per hour.
"We recently purchased a VUTEk GS3200 digital inkjet printer with white ink print capability for our Crush Creative facility. In order to continue to support a variety of display designs we receive from our major retail clients, we needed to expand our print offerings. The VUTEk GS3200 now gives us the added capability and capacity to quickly produce a diverse range of eight color and white ink applications on rigid and flexible materials. As we see it, our investment in this latest digital inkjet technology was an investment in Merisel's future," said Chuck Murphy, VP of Operations, Merisel, New York.
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. Both of the VUTEk GS Series printers on display at SGIA allow businesses to stay ahead of the competition by providing a way to differentiate and offer expanded options of applications and substrates.
The VUTEk QS3220 combines High-Definition Print (HDP) with high production speeds for eye-popping images with resolutions up to 1080 dpi at up to 900 square feet per hour. Like the GS3200, the QS3220 saves valuable floor space by producing roll-to-roll and rigid applications on one machine.
