EFI unveils two new Q series roll-to-roll printers

EFI launched two new roll-to-roll printers, the EFI VUTEk Q3r and Q5r UV LED, in the higher-volume end of the superwide-format signage and display graphics market.

Launched at EFI’s Engage virtual event, the new series facilitates higher productivity and greater application reach, especially in its full system solution from file submission to finished print, which is already cut to size and rolled and marked for the designated display location.

The VUTEk Q3r and Q5r feature up to nine ink colours (standard CMYK and optional LC, LM, LK, white and clear coat), thus enabling exact customisation of each printer to users’ individual needs and strategies. In addition, they also include EFI UltraDrop Technology, featuring native seven-picolitre printheads with multi-drop addressability for high-definition image quality.

The fastest, most productive roll-to-roll display graphics printers in its class is the 198-inch wide VUTEk Q5r, which runs at speeds up to 672 square meters per hour, and the 138-inch wide VUTEk Q3r model, which prints up to 558 square meters per hour.

Ken Hanulec, vice president, worldwide marketing, EFI said, “We designed the EFI Vutek Q3r and Q5r to go beyond printing, to provide a complete print to finished graphic workflow - from Rip to finished product - on the same platform”.

“This new printer series is one big competitive edge for our customers, bringing unprecedented speed to our portfolio and a host of valuable features and options that take profitable roll-to-roll print production to a new, higher level” he added.

Both printers include EFI’s Fiery proServer Premium digital front end (DFE) with Fiery Fast Rip. The DFE systems also include options such as Fiery Spot Colour, Fiery Colour Profiler Suite and Fiery Colour Verifier.

The new printers are aimed at the widest range of application capabilities, signage, wall coverings and murals, POP, exhibitions, floor graphics, window decorations, luxury vinyl tile and more.
