EFI has used the virtual.drupa platform to take the wraps off its new EFI Pro 30h printer.
The press is a hybrid flatbed/roll-fed entry-level production printer that gives users broader application capability, versatility and profit potential in wide format work.
At 3.2 meters wide, EFI said the Pro 30h is ideal for commercial print shops, sign shops and in-plant print departments looking to start, upgrade or add board and roll-to-roll print jobs to their wide-format capabilities.
The printer comes standard with two channels of white and optional clear ink for unique, high-value prints with high gloss images, special effects and multilayer printing.
EFI said one of the Pro 30h printer’s notable differentiators is its Continuous Board printing capability, a standard feature that allows users to maximise the printer’s full production speeds with large boards or multiple small boards simultaneously.
The Pro 30h features dual roll printing for even more throughput, plus it is designed to make alternating between rigid and flexible substrates fast and easy.
With speeds of up to 230 square meters, customers will be able to take on more jobs and meet customer demand for faster turnarounds.
The printer also features an EFI Fiery proServer Core digital front end (DFE) with FAST RIP acceleration technology for quick file processing, along with powerful spot colour control, cut marks creation, colour profiling and colour verification features.
During his presentation at virtual.drupa, EFI chief technology officer Doug Edwards said, “Our EFI team has continued to innovate and deliver for our customers even in challenging times. It’s more important than ever for us to lead the industry not only in terms of consistent delivery of innovative products, but also in providing the know-how that our customers can lean on to drive digital transformation and new business strategies.”
“EFI is uniquely positioned in the industry because of our system integration of core components of software, hardware and ink.
“Our expertise in integrating systems across multiple applications allows us to guide customers in building ecosystem roadmaps and endeavoring in minimally disruptive digital transformations.”
