EFI, the world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, recently reported that its breakthrough superwide format products – VUTEk QS3200r and VUTEk 3360 – garnered two key awards at SGIA, held in Orlando, Florida, in October.
“The launch of the QS3200r at SGIA was a huge success for us and continues to demonstrate QS product family leadership in the UV market. Not only did we have great reception from attendees to this breakout product, but it was also recognized as the DPI Grand Format UV Product of the Year for 2007,” said Chuck Dourlet, vice president of marketing, EFI VUTEk.
The QS3200r is an exceptionally high quality, high-speed roll-to-roll UV printer that produces images up to 3.2 meters wide with High Definition Print (HDP) at 1,080 dpi, and achieves speeds of up to 1,850 square feet per hour. The QS3200r uses specially developed VUTEk QS Series r UV inks, ideally suited for roll-to-roll applications. The inks are available in eight colours (cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light cyan, light magenta, light yellow and light black). Alternatively, the printer can be operated in the VUTEk exclusive Fast-4 mode with two CMYK banks for faster speed.
The new VUTEk QS Series r inks have unique properties that allow printing on fabric, backlit materials, banners, adhesive backed vinyl, static cling, and a variety of different substrates. In addition, the VUTEk QS Series r inks are designed to be flexible, making them especially suitable for projects with complex curves, such as kiosks, vehicle wraps and more.
EFI was also recognized for its VUTEk 3360 with BioVu inks, which was named the Grand Format Solvent Product of the Year.
