The PressVu UV 200/600 SC delivers high-end image quality, greater productivity and improved profitability at an affordable price. The PressVu UV 200/600 SC digital inkjet printer is loaded with features typically found on more expensive models – like stunning six-color, 600 dpi capabilities that deliver photographic color reproduction and crisp text reproduction. With virtually limitless versatility and industrial-strength construction, the PressVu UV 200/600 SC allows operators to print on a variety of sheet-fed or roll-to-roll materials around the clock.

The PressVu UV 200/600 SC can print up to 80 inches (two meters) wide at up to 350 square feet (33 square meters) per hour, on rigid materials up to 1.75 inches (4.45 centimeters) thick. Color gradients are smooth in the printer’s six-color/600 dpi mode, and accurate and easily repeatable matching of target colors is now possible. Also on display, the UltraVu II 3360 three-meter roll-to-roll printer delivers the best image quality and most productivity in its class. In addition to throughput improvements in all print modes, the UltraVu II 3360 comes standard with many new features, including a more automated two-sided print registration option for producing consistent, distortion-free double-sided graphics. Engineered for both high-speed and high-quality printing, the UltraVu II 3360 achieves print speeds up to 1,622 square feet (151 square meters) per hour with the new Rapid Return feature, included in VUTEk’s latest software version. The Rapid Return feature allows the printer carriage to increase acceleration and deceleration speeds, so there is no longer a significant pause between sweeps. Available in four-, six- and eight-color models, the UltraVu II 3360 prints at 720 dpi resolution (360 dpi addressable) for sharp, crisp and consistent output. In addition, VUTEk will showcase the PressVu UV 320/400 UV-curing flatbed printer. As the most productive printer in its class, the PressVu UV 320/400 features improved text quality, designed to help digital print providers increase profitability.
