(booth #600) and Nazdar SourceOne (booth #5400) are exhibiting EFI’s newest wide-format printer, a Pro 24f dedicated LED flatbed model that comes with white ink standard and includes a built-in Fiery proServer Core DFE. The flatbed printer has a true 4x8-foot architecture and offers precision imaging, fine detail and outstanding image quality. It is a highly strategic choice for signage, photographic backlit displays, art reproductions, membrane switches, graphic overlays, lenticular prints and other specialty applications up to 2 inches thick.
International Sign Expo attendees can also take a virtual reality tour at the EFI booth of the VUTEk HS125 Pro high-speed hybrid printer and EFI’s breakthrough Nozomi C18000 press for ultra-high-speed direct-to-corrugated LED inkjet corrugated display and packaging production.

Another one of the inkjet production products on display, the EFI Pro 16h LED wide-format printer, sets a new standard for entry-level hybrid production. This 65-inch wide Fiery Driven printer includes white ink and delivers a low total cost of ownership and superior image quality for a broad range of applications.
