Electronics For Imaging (EFI) received a leading print-industry honour from the European graphic arts trade press – the EDP Award – for the Best Roll-to-Roll Textile Print technology. The EFI VUTEk FabriVU series of digital fabric printers offers everything needed to produce high-quality images at true production level speeds – all while keeping running cost low and profit opportunity high.
The VUTEk FabriVU printers have proven to be especially successful in helping signage and display companies move into higher-value soft signage display work as it offers an unparalleled combination of productivity and quality with fast speeds and printing resolutions up to 2,400 dots per inch (dpi). Customers can print dazzling displays, high-density backlit signs and more with ultra-high-resolution four-colour printing. Soft signs produced with the printers retain the drape and soft hand customers prefer.
The 1.8m FabriVU 180 and 3.4m FabriVU 340 models also offer the distinct advantage of printing on transfer paper or direct-to-fabric with the same inkset. That capability saves considerable labour and machine downtime compared to other printers when changing from transfer to direct applications, on top of the expense of discarded ink that is wasted when clearing ink lines.
FabriVU-printed graphics that can be washed and dried without wrinkling, folded without leaving marks and reused. The lighter weight and ability to fold fabric also significantly decreases shipping and storage costs as compared to more conventional signage.
