EFI launches two-meter Vutek superwide printer

The QS220 is ideal for businesses that want to fuel profitability by adding flexible, production-level equipment that will support their growth, according to EFI.

Dick Wissenbach senior vice president/general manager for EFI Vutek says, “More and more businesses are exploring out-of-home advertising as a way to reach customers, but unfortunately many print businesses are forced to choose between high production speeds and high image quality.”

He continues, “The QS220 is an all-in-one printer; it has the speed to print 16 4’x8′ boards per hour as well as the ability to print in high definition. This is a great time to be involved in superwide format printing, and with pricing comparable to wide format printers, the QS220 is a smart investment for any print business.”

EFI continues that Vutek’s HDP technology provides resolution up to 1080 dpi, produces four- or six-colour images, and features a seventh channel for six variations of white ink.

The QS220 is capable of printing colour and white in three independent layers all in one pass for perfect registration and more advanced printing applications. This in-line, three-layer white printing capability grants the ability to produce new, high-margin applications that other businesses cannot provide, such as enhanced-definition back-lit displays or layered, art-quality graphics printed on dark substrates, according to EFI.

The company also outlines that the technology of the QS220 allows it to effectively replace multiple wide-format printers. Its small footprint and optional roll-to-roll capability fulfil the functions of multiple printers, especially with its fast production speeds, high resolution and lower ink running costs than other superwide printers.
