Press release from the issuing company
Munich, Germany - EFI today announced that it will be displaying its most advanced UV printers in stand B1/120 at Fespa 2010, 22-26 June (Munich, Germany). This will include the VUTEk GS3200 with the new MediaMaster automatic media handling system, the GS5000r, the high-productivity QS3250r UV roll-to-roll superwide printer, the versatile Rastek T1000 and the H650 wide-format UV printers, and the Jetrion 4830 digital label press. EFI will also feature Pace print management system, Digital StoreFront web-to-print solutions and Web Control Center for remote proofing.
"We have been exhibiting at Fespa for 15 years and EFI continues its commitment of bringing award winning end-to-end solutions to its attendees. As technology improves, industry leaders must deliver offerings that can harness turn-key solutions and provide new revenue opportunities. We look forward to showing our enhanced portfolio to our worldwide customers, prospects and partners in Germany this year," said EFI president, Fred Rosenzweig.

Its unmatched, quick-turn capability reduces inventory, increases customer satisfaction by eliminating lengthy lead times, and accommodates last-minute changes.
"We have been working with the new GS5000r for a few weeks now and we are amazed by the truly impressive print quality we can get from a 5-meter printer," said Thomas Ellmer, director at Ellmer GmbH in Bad Salzuflen, Germany. "The new UV inks are, in comparison to UV inks offered by other vendors, a big step forward toward a more pleasant working environment. Our customers also appreciate the fact that prints delivered to them are nearly without any odor."
EFI's demonstrates proven quality and high productivity of VUTEk GS3200
The VUTEk GS3200 comes with 1000 dpi for high-precision quality and 12-picolitre droplet technology for all colors, including white. The printer also offers advanced three-layer white ink capabilities for printing exceptional quality on a wider range of materials.
"Not being restricted to white material is a tremendous advantage (of the GS3200)," said Andy Williams, managing director of Andesign (Sutton Coldfield, UK). "The good opacity of the white is enhanced by the way it can be incorporated into the workflow, making it a simple addition to the existing colors and enabling greater creativity in designs and how they can be implemented in a digitally printed format."

The MediaMaster system also lowers overhead costs by allowing one operator to efficiently run two VUTEk printers simultaneously, or focus on maximizing the output capabilities of the GS3200 in high-speed modes. The easy cart system streamlines the print-to-finishing workflow, allowing the operator to wheel the printed product to a cut or shipping station. The material handling system enables customers to fully utilize the maximum speed of the GS3200, and will help drive the analog to digital transition in the screen print market where productivity is crucial.

"According to Pace's activity-based method every transaction has a cost price. For example, setting up a new roll on the machine has a certain cost. There is nothing spectacular about this so far, but what's different is that the software also takes account of the weight of the roll. In fact, you cannot set up a 100 kg roll alone, so there is an additional wage cost for a second person. It is quite a complex method, but much more precise. In addition, Pace naturally has everything, such as JDF support, that a modern MIS system has to fulfil. We are still in the start-up phase at present, but just like with our other VUTEk solutions it looks very promising," explains Christian Pelegrie of Pelegrie in Hoboken, Belgium.
"Our VUTEk, Rastek and Jetrion printing systems help customers all over the world transition to UV printing and tap into more profitable and niche markets with new applications," said Rosenzweig. "In addition to having the ability to select print output resolution and speed capabilities, customers need new ways to automate operations, by using products like our new MediaMaster for operational savings. The Rastek T1000 UV flatbed printer is another example of EFI continuing to innovate, as we continue to expand our hardware, ink and software portfolio. At the show, our customers will have a great opportunity to see EFI Pace and Digital Storefront, both of which offer unlimited options for external connectivity with the customer, and streamline internal operations. Overall, EFI provides the product portfolio for our customers to profitably transition from analog to digital."
