Reidler Decal Corporation installed a pair of advanced wide-format printers from Electronics For Imaging, Inc.
– an EFI Pro 16h hybrid flatbed/roll-to-roll LED printer, and the newest printer in the EFI Wide Format line up, a Pro 32r roll-to-roll LED printer.
Authorized EFI Inkjet partner Nazdar SourceOne sold the two new printers to Reidler Decal.
The new Pro 32r roll-to-roll printer purchase is one of the first installations of that printer in the U.S.
“Our digital market is the fastest growing segment of our business,” Reidler Decal Corp. President Ted Reidler said. “We did a lot of research and comparing of presses, and we found the EFI Pro 32r gives us the most competitive advantage in speed, cost of ownership and pricing of ink.
“We wanted to upgrade our capabilities,” Reidler continued. “The 32r is around two-and-a-half times faster than our previous equipment, has more capabilities to print on diverse substrates, and the ink is much more economical. It increases our capacity with higher speeds, while at the same time lowering our cost per square foot.”
The 126-inch wide EFI Pro 32r is an economical and versatile production-level LED printer, with four colors and optional white inks, an integrated mesh kit and a wrinkle analyzer. Designed for high-quality output with mid-level production, the Pro 32r prints up to 2,227 square feet per hour and offers EFI’s 7-picoliter UltraDrop Technology imaging.
The printer’s “cool cure” LED imaging helps with lower power consumption, plus it gives Reidler Decal the ability to print on a wide variety of flexible substrates, including thin or specialty media that cannot withstand the heat required with traditional UV or latex printers.
Reidler Decal also purchased an EFI Pro 16h printer from Nazdar.
“The Pro 16h gives us flatbed capabilities as well as acting as a backup for our roll-to-roll printing. And like the Pro 32r, it also lowers our cost of production," Reidler said.
The 65-inch wide Pro 16h model includes white ink and is designed with a robust package of features to assure a lower total cost of ownership, superior image quality and a broad range of applications. Like the Pro 32r, the Pro 16h model features EFI’s energy-efficient LED imaging for lower energy costs and compatibility with an exceptionally broad range of substrates.
