New products include the EFI Reggiani ReNOIR FLEXY, an industrial textile printer making its worldwide debut. In addition, EFI is presenting a pair of new LED inkjet printers offering excellent returns on investment, as well as the latest version of the company’s Midmarket Print Suite, based on the award-winning Pace MIS/ERP software, offering advanced tools for superwide format production management.
The Reggiani ReNOIR FLEXY launching at FESPA 2017 is new equipment that allows nearly any business to get into industrial textile by offering outstanding performance and results of larger Reggiani printers. Customers can run the widest variety of fabrics — from knitted to woven as well as low- and high-stretchable and stretchable materials — with confidence using the printer’s brand-new “Dynaplast” technology. The 1.8-meter printer is available with eight printheads and has a production speed of more than 400 square meters per hour with a resolution of up to 2,400 dpi.
The printer is the first EFI industrial textile printer to have a new green housing reflecting Reggiani’s brand heritage as well as the product line’s environmentally friendly production advantages, such an ink recovery feature that dramatically reduces ink consumption.
The new EFI Pro 16h wide-format hybrid roll/flatbed LED printer on display sets new standards for entry-level hybrid roll/flatbed LED production printers. This new Fiery Driven printer is extremely affordable, includes white ink, and its feature set assures lowest total cost of ownership, superior image quality and a broad range of applications. This new printer platform has faster speeds than other EFI entry-level hybrid production platforms, with some print modes offering up to a 30% higher throughput.
EFI is also showcasing its next generation of VUTEk roll-to-roll printers, with the new, industrial 3.2-meter EFI VUTEk 3r roll-to-roll LED printer on exhibit at the show. It also boasts the highest productivity in its category with speeds of up to 345 square meters per hour.
Another model in the new roll-to-roll printer line, the 5-meter EFI VUTEk 5r LED printer also offers best-in-class print resolution and productivity with throughput speeds up to 455 square meters per hour.
EFI customers now have the added benefit of the 3M MCS Warranty on their outdoor graphics and fleet and vehicle graphics work printed on VUTEk 3r and 5r printers, along with EFI Quantum 3 and 5 roll-to-roll printers. The printers are now eligible for the warranty using new co-branded EFI - 3M SuperRange XF series LED inks along with 3M premium media and overlaminates.
