Press release from the issuing company

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS -- FESPA Digital Europe -- EFI, the world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today announced a new 64-inch (162.56 cm) addition to their popular Rastek? line of environmentally-friendly, wide-format printers, the Rastek H650 UV hybrid flatbed, which delivers best-in-class image quality at an affordable price, making it the perfect choice for production and print shop environments that are looking to offer quick service and photographic quality on a wide variety of rigid and flexible substrates. The new printer will be on display from May 12-14th in EFI's stand (Hall 1 - A20) at FESPA Digital Europe in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
"Our customers have been asking for a more affordable way to produce wide-format applications, and the new Rastek H650 answers those calls without sacrificing what's important in a wide-format printer," said Darrell Etter, director, product marketing, EFI Rastek. "The H650 delivers much more than comparable printers on the market today, including faster speeds, better quality, a high-quality vacuum drive belt and the ability to print with white ink. Competing systems just cannot match what the Rastek H650 offers."
The affordably-priced Rastek H650 prints CMYK plus white in grayscale resolutions up to 600 dpi and in a binary resolution mode that prints at 1200x900 dpi. In its billboard mode, the Rastek H650 produces output at 600x300 dpi at 230 square feet (21.37 square meters) per hour, and in its high quality, 16-pass mode at 65 square feet (6 square meters) per hour.
The Rastek H650's superior media handling system includes a high quality vacuum belt drive with three vacuum zones capable of handling roll or rigid media up to 1.8 inches (4.572 cm) thick and has a print width of 64 inches wide. Media options include Fome-Cor, PVC, plywood, aluminum, acrylic and glass, as well as traditional flexible substrates. This printer is the perfect, affordable solution for businesses that want to print wide-format applications ranging from banners and billboards to posters and point-of-purchases graphics.
The new Rastek H650 UV hybrid flatbed printer is on display in EFI's stand at FESPA Digital Europe, and is available for order now.
