EFI introduces new soft signage FabriVU printer
EFI announced the launch of the VUTEk FabriVU Plus series 70-, 133- and 205-inch dispersed dye-sublimation printers.
At its series of EFI Ignition customer events, the company debuted the 133-inch-wide VUTEk FabriVU 340i+ model with in-line sublimation.
The EFI VUTEk FabriVU 340i+ is an upgraded version of its predecessor, the EFI VUTEk FabriVU 340i.
The FabriVU 340i+ model delivers upgraded performance thanks to eight high-performance printheads, and enhanced high-quality and backlit print modes, with the ability to print on transfer paper or direct to fabric using the same ink set.
The FabriVU Plus series’ new CMYK x 2 configuration printhead array – along with new electronics, a new vacuum system, and a new heating element – deliver higher-quality 600 dpi graphics with better saturation and more density.
