EFI’s roll-to-roll printing machines attract customers at FESPA Munich

EFI had several of its machines on display at the recent FESPA Munich tradeshow, but the ones that are gaining the most popularity amongst the Australian customer base are its roll-to-roll printers, such as the EFI VUTEk Q3r and Q5r, EFI VUTEk 3r+ and 5r+, EFI VUTEk D3r and D5r, and EFI Pro 32r+ printers.

EFI senior business development manager Brett Addison told Sprinter that the most popular features from this range are its ability to offer the widest range of application capabilities – inline slitting and cutting, double-sided printing, and more; superb white ink printing performance in single- and multi-layer print modes; and white and clear ink printing together for increased design and application possibilities.

“During COVID, we found that our truck tarp manufacturers were receiving up to 50 new trailers a week. This meant that printing on truck tarps couldn’t be done the analogue way anymore. With EFI digital inkjet roll-to-roll printers, you can print, coat, and cut truck tarps in under one hour using one machine,” Addison said.

EFI UltraClear Coat can be used as a final protective coating, or for decorative applications, and prints with a gloss or matte finish inline, simultaneously with the image. And EFI inks for truck side curtains are warranted by EFI for up to five years (subject to terms and conditions set forth in EFI Ink Warranty for Truck Side Curtains applications).

“UltraClear Coat not only works on truck tarp applications but other applications as well. This special feature means that if you have a backlit graphic or wallpaper that has been clear coated, all you need to do is spray and wipe it instead of having to replace it,” Addison added.

EFI has already sold five of its machines into truck tarp companies locally over the past few years, including the install of an EFI VUTEk D3r at Fleetmark.

EFI’s broad portfolio of wide format printers are available locally through Currie Group.
