MMT’s purchase is the 300th installation of EFI’s current-generation roll-to-roll LED printer platform, and EFI recognized MMT for the milestone achievement at the Printing United tradeshow in Dallas.
“In our business, quality and productivity are key,” MMT President William Ishida said. “Our new VUTEk 5r+ printer meets both requirements and opens the door for us to create new solutions for our customers. The LED imaging on the printer gives us more options in the range of materials we print on, while the finishing solutions we have added will help streamline operations and allow us to continue to meet turnaround time demands while increasing our production volumes.”
The 198-inch wide roll-to-roll printer delivers production speeds up to 5,160 square feet per hour. The printer’s advanced “Cool Cure” LED imaging saves money and resources, requiring significantly less energy compared with mercury arc UV or latex inkjet printing.
The printer’s 7-picoliter UltraDrop Technology provides superb transitions, vignettes, skin tones and shadows. The printer also has new white ink printing modes for faster speeds compared with the original EFI VUTEk 5r model. Also, the VUTEk 5r+ provides higher ink densities, a larger color gamut and overall better print quality.
