EFI is launching a new mid-range roll-to-roll printer line targeting sign and display graphics at signature Connect event.
The new EFI VUTEk D3r and D5r LED inkjet printers leverage the capabilities from the VUTEk 3r+ and 5r+ printers, offering a mid-range solution for a wide variety of high value applications. It features a combination of white and clear inks, as well as its Museum print mode. The new printer line also supports the unique collection of options for VUTEk roll-to-roll LED printers.
“The ‘D’ in the name for these new printers is for ‘Design,’ and they are absolutely designed to offer the right mix of features, productivity and cost to create new opportunities for signage and graphics professionals,” said Ken Hanulec, EFI’s vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “We listened very closely to our customers for feedback to create a mid-volume solution that will be the technology of choice for print providers seeking to profitably grow their businesses with high-end applications.”
The VUTEk D3r prints up to 2,196 sqf per hour, while the VUTEk D5r, prints up to 2,626 sqf per hour. The D5r already has early users: Thomas Printworks in the United States and Allgraf in Italy. The companies installed the printer line to meet growing demand for high-end signage, décor, outdoor graphics and other applications.
The VUTEk D3r is making its worldwide debut at the EFI Connect users’ conference, January 21-24 in Las Vegas, and making its European debut at the EFI EMEA Ignite event on January 29 in Brussels, Belgium.
