Visitors to the expo will be the first in China to see the EFITM VUTEk 5r, a 5-meter wide roll-to-roll LED inkjet printer offering excellent image quality and high throughput speeds. The printer is part of a EFI exhibit at the tradeshow that also includes advanced EFI VUTEk hybrid roll/flatbed LED, new EFI MarketDirect cross media customer engagement software, and a dynamic virtual reality (VR) experience for the company’s high-speed and ultra-high-speed technologies for analog-to-digital conversion of signage, graphics and corrugated packaging production.
The new VUTEk 5r model features throughput of up to 460 square meters per hour and powerful LED curing technology.
“China is an exciting market and one we are thrilled to be a part of, bringing leading-edge technology to customers looking for the best ways to advance their businesses,” said Bing Wang, EFI Greater China director. “As Chinese printers continue to push the boundaries in the printing space, we are keen to showcase our new technology and our complete ecosystem of products.”

It has eight colors, and is a versatile, cost-effective and environmentally friendly printer for a wide range of applications, including tradeshow graphics, indoor hanging banners, indoor murals, wallpaper, building wraps, window clings and graphics and fine art.
