A safety and identification signage production company has boosted its throughput and quality, adding LED digital inkjet production with an EFI VUTEk GS2000LX Pro wide-format printer from Electronics For Imaging. The two-meter-wide hybrid device can run both rolls and flat/rigid materials, and provides greater consistency.
The printer’s “cool cure” LED technology also offers lower operating costs, as it uses less energy for curing or drying compared with other digital devices. The LED technology also expands the range of compatible substrates that can be printed on, including thin or specialty substrates that cannot withstand the heat of other drying or curing methods.
The printer features EFI’s 7-picoliter UltraDrop Technology, which provides true multi-drop addressability in each dot position, four-level grayscale imaging and two ink density levels for high apparent resolution and high-definition quality. The printer not only delivers outstanding smoothness in shadows, gradients, and transitions, but prints also have superb text quality in type sizes down to four points—something that has already expanded the range of products the company provides.
