“We added the VUTEk because it will greatly improve our POP, POS and sales sample side of the business,” said Russ Brown, SGS Cincinnati retail production manager. “The roll-to-roll capability expands our capability to print on a variety of different materials like translucent film for backlits, while the flatbed option means we can print on substrates up to 11mm thick, such as acrylics, and metal-backed styrene for high-quality products.”
Brown says the company, which counts leading consumer brands such as Macy’s, Dillard’s and Bon-Ton among its clients, was impressed by the speed of the VUTEk 5r, while the larger size maximizes the output and enhances productivity.
“This is also our first foray into LED, and we were very impressed with the system,” said Brown. “We can now offer more options with outdoor banners that deliver longer life with a friendlier technology.”
Featuring high-resolution, 7-picoliter EFI UltraDrop Technology, the new VUTEk 5r model is designed to offer both the fastest rated throughput – running at speeds up to 4,896 square feet per hour – and the highest imaging quality in its class.
