Featuring 7pL drop, LED UV-curing, and a collection of optional accessories, the EFI™ VUTEk D5r/3r are the most versatile all-in-one, high-quality printer, the company said in a statement.
Arrow/Efi, on Monday, launched a new VUTEk D3r/5r Roll-to-Roll Printers. Featuring 7pL drop, LED UV-curing, and a collection of optional accessories, the EFI™ VUTEk D5r/3r are the most versatile all-in-one, high-quality printer, the company said.
Talking more about the VUTEk D series printers, Sam Patel, Arrow Digital, said, “The 3.4mtr and 5.2mtr VUTEk D series printers are the newest EFI superwide industrial roll-to-roll printers with full design and application capabilities. They are positioned between the high-end VUTEk 3r+/5r+ and the entry-level EFI Pro 32r+. With production speeds up to 2540 ft2/hr. for the VUTEk D3r and 3068 ft2/hr. for the VUTEk D5r. These printers incorporate all the latest technology advancements recently implemented in the VUTEk 3r+ & 5r+ and Pro 32r+.”
The D series supports both white and clear ink – matte and glossy – printing, while the other roll-to-roll products offer a choice between white or clear ink. The clear coat ink is printed inline, simultaneously with the image, without slowing production speed. It can be printed either as full flood or selective and can have a matte or glossy finish with the same ink.
The clear ink provides 3-years of outdoor protection against abrasion, chemicals, weather damage, UV fading, yellowing and air pollution. This makes the D series printers particularly suitable for a variety of unique premium applications, such as wall decorations and murals, window graphics, wallpapers, floorings, high-value prints with selective gloss effects, fleet graphics, truck-side curtains, and more.
“The ‘cool cure’ LED technology empowers you with the ability to do more for less. Increase your profit opportunities by offering premium-margin applications, while reducing operating costs and your environmental footprint. To further enhance the roll to roll printing the new and improved high speed LED Super range UV inks which are Greenguard and Greenguard Gold certified, gives the best colour gamut Efi has to offer for this platform, along with outdoor durability with the 3M MCS warranties when needed. The Cool Curing and Greenguard Certifications make the D5r/3r a Sustainable Green Printing Solution,” the company said in a statement.
The best feature is the fully automatic, patented, back to back printing using auto-registration camera system, giving the most economical and accurate method of printing day/night balanced long signs and high resolution backlit graphics. All these features make the D5r/3r a perfect match for Indoor, Outdoor and Fleet Graphic Applications.
