Precision printing

Automated table and carriage alignment, magnetic linear drive control and step mechanics and electronics, and a camera-based vision system for subpixel alignment, printhead density balance, and step and bi-directional setup.

Print and media handling options

EFI UltraClear Coat provides a more flexible cure and can be used for decorative applications as well as for a final protective coating. It prints inline, simultaneously with the image, saving time versus using a separate offline coating system, and in gloss* or matte finishes.

* Use Gloss print mode for full protection

EFI VUTEk Endura Clear Ink – Enhance an entire image (full flood) or selected areas (spot) to add extra pop to colours or special effects to graphics. Endura clear ink is printed in line with the other colours and provides a hard surface cure with a gloss finish.

EFI Transform-TF Inks – next-generation, LED-curable digital inks formulated for first- and second-surface interior and exterior and non-backlit and backlit applications where common thermoforming is specified. Transform-TF inks exhibit outstanding elongation characteristics while maintaining excellent adhesion and opacity and provide ideal characteristics for heat bending and routing of acrylic sheets with no chipping or loss of adhesion. And since Transform-TF inks adhere to a broad range of materials, applications go well beyond thermoforming.

Gloss+ print mode – use this innovative print mode to add a flood or selective gloss effect to graphic prints without the use of clear ink. It’s the perfect way to add value to short-run, speciality jobs.

Media handling accessories

All new media hold-down rollers mount to existing MEG rails and the spring rollers force media into the vacuum, often eliminating the need for MEG skis.
