Electronics for Imaging Inc. (EFI; Fremont, CA) has announced the new EFI VUTEk Q3r and Q5r UV LED printers. Both produce a wide range of applications for the super wide-format signage and display graphics market. The fastest, most productive roll-to-roll display graphics printers in their class — per a release — the 198-in.-wide VUTEk Q5r printer runs at speeds up to 7,233 sq. ft./hr., and the 138-in.-wide VUTEk Q3r model prints up to 6,006 sq. ft./hr.
The new printers feature up to nine ink colors (standard CMYK and optional lc, lm, lk, white and clear coat), enabling exact customization of each printer to users’ needs and strategies. They also use EFI UltraDrop Technology, featuring native 7-picoliter printheads with multi-drop addressability for high-definition image quality. Users gain outstanding smoothness in shadows, gradients and transitions, as well as precise and sharp 3-point size text with a true resolution of up to 1,200 dpi, according to the company.
The printers also feature EFI’s “Power Tool” options for advanced productivity and capabilities, including in-line quality inspection, in-line slitting and cutting, roll and tape collection, auto-calibration, automated backlit printing, automated blockout printing and more.
Both printers include EFI’s Fiery proServer Premium digital front end (DFE) with Fiery FAST RIP for accelerated file processing, maximizing the printer investment by eliminating idle printer time. The printers’ Fiery DFE systems also include options such as Fiery Spot Color, Fiery Color Profiler Suite and Fiery Color Verifier for the ultimate in easy-to-use, proof-grade color management.
The VUTEk Q3r and Q5r printers were launched this week during EFI’s Engage virtual users event.
