EFI installs world’s first VUTEk Q5r in Israel

The world’s first VUTEk Q5r has been installed at a large format digital printing house in Israel, Yahav Digital Print.

The printer currently has four EFI roll-to-roll printers and had deployed many other EFI printers throughout its history.

Yahav Digital Print CEO Zevik Nur said he made the decision to invest in the new technology as he found that the new capabilities of the Q5r “go above and beyond just faster print” to also deliver a complete full system solution from file submission to finishing.

“Our new VUTEk Q5r was installed in October of 2020, and we have been running it in full production ever since,” Nur said.

“It has exceeded all our expectations in terms of reliability, production speeds, print quality, ink consumption, media utilisation and ease of use. We can shift a lot of jobs to the new Q5r, and our customers are highly satisfied with our ability to shorten lead time and produce even higher quality prints at faster speeds.”

The VUTEk Q5r is one of two new printers that EFI has launched this week during its Engage virtual users event.

The new EFI VUTEk Q3r and Q5r UV LED printers produce a wide range of applications, like premium POP with multi-layer white and cosmetics displays that demand high print quality, to high volume campaigns that require low cost of production.

The fastest, most productive roll-to-roll display graphics printers in its class is the 198-inch wide VUTEk Q5r printer, 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.

Both printers feature up to nine ink colours (standard CMYK and optional light cyan, light magenta, light black, white and clear coat), enabling exact customisation of each printer to users’ needs and strategies, amongst other features.
