“I am impressed with the quality. I have been involved with UV ink for 20 years in digital printing and there has been a big evolution in the technology that you can see with the UV-LED imaging on the VUTEk 5r+," Parallax Founder David Clevenger said.
The printer is the first EFI device at Parallax, a company that has a production floor with dye-sublimation, UV and latex devices from several different manufacturers.
Founded 25 years ago as a creative service bureau, design company and high-end advertising photo studio, “We are a creative business first, and we love having cutting-edge technologies and capabilities that allow us to achieve the high standards we set for ourselves,” Clevenger said.
The printer is available with several optional features.
“Cutting and slitting would take a longer time using offline equipment for many of the large pieces we print on this device,” Clevenger said. “The cutting option on the VUTEk 5r+ gives us a similar level of precision and faster throughput for less money.”
Parallax uses its newest roll-to-roll device for a wide range of applications, including producing outdoor graphics and printing on several different specialized materials.
The roll-to-roll UV-LED inkjet printer delivers production speeds up to 5,160 square feet per hour.
