Brilliant imaging

Four (optional) or eight colours plus white, optional clear ink, and UltraDrop™ Technology 7pL greyscale printheads for up to 1200 dpi resolution.

White ink and multilayer printing

High-resolution EFI white ink leads the industry in brightness and opacity due to variable drop printing capability and can be imaged like any colour or using multilayer printing with up to nine layers in a single pass.

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.

Efficient production

Mechanical crash detection stops and media height measurement help prevent job stoppages and wasted ink and media.

Innovative ink delivery

Ink loading with a drop-in design eliminates wasted ink and the need to manage leftover ink. The system features fill-while-printing functionality and an ink security system with low ink, colour, and location indicators.

Customer Story

As Cincinnati, Ohio-based GCI Digital Imaging continued to grow, they needed more capacity and faster speeds. That’s when the company decided to add an EFI VUTEk h5 hybrid flatbed/roll-fed LED printer.

With the h5, it gave us the ability to print approximately 100 beds an hour. And that is allowing us to take on some really quick marketing campaigns…

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.

Media Edge Guide (MEG) skis are available in 1.6 mm, 2.4 mm, and 0.30 mm thicknesses.
