Wichita, Kan.-based customer Superior Signs & Engraving is the very first user for the printer. The printer’s premium quality imaging capabilities, with white ink included, and the high versatility and productivity of EFI’s “cool cure” LED technology, have vastly improved throughput and quality at the company.
Twice the output, higher quality and exceptional versatility
“The 24f produces vibrant colors and has great print speed," said Superior Signs & Engraving Co-owner Adam Stiles. "Plus, the printer’s white ink produces a very opaque, bright white color.
“The features that are a nice upgrade for us besides the color quality and speed are the button activated media guides and the media float button,” Stiles continued. “When positioning heavier medias such as 6-mm Dibond® and ¼-inch acrylic, the float allows us to easily position the material without having to worry about sliding it, especially on double-sided prints.
A high-value addition to EFI’s extensive inkjet portfolio
The printer is the newest addition to EFI’s growing wide-format portfolio, a dedicated flatbed device perfect for applications requiring discerning image quality and absolute dot placement accuracy. A highly strategic choice for signage, photographic backlit displays, art reproductions, membrane switches, graphic overlays, lenticular prints and other specialty applications, this printer’s true 4x8-foot flatbed architecture features a multi-zoned vacuum system that eliminates masking while ensuring accurate registration for multiple over-prints or panels. EFI’s “cool cure” LED technology ensures low power consumption, minimal waste and compatibility with thinner and heat-sensitive substrates.
The printer’s built-in EFI Fiery proServer Core digital front end gives users the power of faster job processing, along with a host of color management and production options for a complete, turnkey solution.
Demos and print samples from the new printer are available at EFI’s U.S. and European inkjet demo centers in Meredith, N.H. and Brussels, Belgium
