New technology introductions at the Sept. 25-28 tradeshow include the EFI Quick Print Suite, an MIS and eCommerce cloud platform; the EFI Corrugated Packaging Suite featuring an advanced core Manufacturing Execution System (MES) for board production management; the cloud-based EFI Optitex Collaborate App for designers, pattern makers and print teams; the versatile new EFI Fiery NX print server; the award-winning EFI Fiery Color Profiler Suite color management platform for higher-quality output to Idealliance G7 specifications; and the newest-version Fiery Navigator digital print business intelligence tool.
“Last year at Graph Expo, the industry was patiently awaiting the innovations to come from drupa,” said EFI’s CEO, Guy Gecht. “Now, printing companies have seen how the landscape is changing. Online alternatives are placing increased pressure on some areas of print; but at the same time, new opportunities are emerging for digital, on-demand, personalized manufacturing — and imaging — of ‘things.’”
Graph Expo attendees can see two H1625 LED printers on the show floor, one in the EFI exhibit, and a second one presented by EFI partner Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A. in booth 1801.
