EFI launched a mid-range roll-to-roll printer line that helps sign and display graphics customers drive more volume with high-end digital print for endless applications and designs.

According to the company, the new EFI VUTEk D3r and D5r LED inkjet printers leverage many of the advanced capabilities from EFI’s highly successful VUTEk 3r+ and 5r+ printers, offering a mid-range solution for an even wider variety of high value applications thanks to its 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, providing a full system for higher efficiency and a lower cost.

The company statement said: “The D3r and D5r printers, at 3.5- and 5.2-meters wide respectively, deliver outstanding smoothness in shadows, gradients and transitions with UltraDrop Technology, precise and sharp 3-point size text, and a true resolution of up to 1,200 dots per inch. An ultra-high-definition print mode offers near-photographic quality. The printers’ LED curing ensures not only cost savings but also a more environmentally sound printing solution, consuming less energy and enabling the use of thinner, heat-sensitive substrates.”

 The VUTEk D line is equipped with additional printheads and offers both white and jettable clear ink for matte and glossy effects, covering a wider amount of unique applications such as wall decorations and murals, window graphics, flooring, high-value prints with selective gloss effects, fleet graphics, and truck-side curtains.

 The printers are easily customizable to the purchaser’s needs and strategies, with optional features including – white and clear ink; inline x-cutters and y-slitters; automatic backlit and block-out printing; media spreaders and motorized winders.

 Both printers include EFI’s Fiery proServer SE digital front end, allowing increased productivity as well as accurate colour matching every time. Users can choose to add a software productivity pack and are able to remotely connect with the printers using a mobile application. EFI VUTEk SuperFlex 3M inks are also available for manufacturing of vehicle wraps and fleet graphics.
