The VUTEk Q5r Printer and Fiery Finishing Integration Software were top solutions in the categories in the EDP Awards.
EFI announced it has received two European Digital Press (EDP) Awards.
The EFI VUTEk Q5r roll-to-roll UV LED printer won in the large/wide-format printing systems category for printers above 350-centimeters wide. The EFI Fiery software integration with finishers as the top solution in the awards program’s category for software automation tools. EFI VUTEk Q5r The EFI VUTEk Q5r printer is a roll-to-roll display graphics printer capable of running at speeds of up to 7,233 square feet per hour.
The 208-inch-wide printer delivers a full system solution from file submission to a finished print with options such as in-line quality inspection, in-line slitting and cutting, roll and tape collection, auto-calibration, automated backlit printing, automated blockout printing and much more. EFI VUTEk Q series printers, which include both the Q5r and a 138-inch-wide VUTEk Q3r model, are available with up to nine colours including white and clear, and feature EFI UltraDrop Technology with native 7-picoliter printheads and multi-drop addressability for high-definition quality. EFI Fiery software integration with finishers The EFI Fiery software integration with finishers offers advanced integration with in-line or offline slitter/cutter/creasers.
Operators can define cut, crease, and perforation locations on the job content in the Fiery software solution, which then communicates the configuration to finishing equipment, eliminating operator touchpoints and errors from incompatible layouts. EFI Fiery software integration with finishers is offered in two different EFI Fiery software products: Fiery Impose and Fiery Finishing Designer. With Fiery Impose, operators can save up to 90% in setup time by automating job prep and eliminating manual data entry in environments with offlineslitter/cutter/creasers.
