EFI achieved 3 EDP awards
EFI announced that it has received three European Digital Press (EDP) Awards in 2020. EFI’s Fiery FreeForm Create variable data printing (VDP) software, the VUTEk 32h LED hybrid flatbed/roll-to-roll inkjet printer and VUTEk D Series LED roll-to-roll inkjet printers were recognised in the awards programme.
Fiery FreeForm Create won in the EDP Awards category for best special application software. It is a standalone application that comes included with EFI Fiery print servers. It enables companies to easily and quickly add personalised elements such as variable text, images, or barcodes, to files in just a few clicks, making it ideal for VDP novices and seasoned veterans alike.
For print businesses, in-plants and packaging producers, FreeForm Create can provide a more efficient and cost-effective method of personalisation compared to existing or paid applications.
The 3.2-metre EFI VUTEk 32h LED hybrid inkjet printer received the EDP Award for hybrid/flatbed printers up to 250m2/h. The eight-colour printer is a versatile solution that can print on materials up to 5.08-centimetres thick in true 600- or 1,000-dpi resolutions.
A highly versatile hybrid solution, the VUTEk 32h is ideal for direct-to-rigid printing as well as roll-to-roll applications. Its white ink, optional clear ink for spot, flood and unique applications, and multi-layer printing capabilities also make it ideal for the production of premium speciality applications.
The EFI VUTEk D series, winner of the EDP Award for roll-to-roll printers above 320 centimetres, consists of two mid-range LED printers: the VUTEk D3r with a 350 cm maximum printing width, and the D5r with a 520 cm maximum printing width.
EFI created these printers for the industrial printing demands of high-quality volume producers, with the ability to produce a wide range of applications, from indoor signage to fleet graphics, car wraps and truck-side curtains.
The features of VUTEk D series printers, including 1,200 dots per inch (dpi) printing, white and clear ink, multi-layer printing, and inline finishing, make them ideal for closely viewed indoor applications such as window displays, POS and POP images, backlit signs, interior décor for walls and floors, trade show graphics, and fine art prints. The durable and high-quality graphics VUTEk D series printers provide also give customers more value in their ability to produce outdoor applications.
