To cater to increasing demands from display producers, photo labs and sign makers wanting higher image quality capabilities at production level speeds, EFI today announced the EFI VUTEk QS2 Pro UV hybrid printer. This competitively-priced, two-metre printer, driven by the Orion OS platform, combines greyscale print quality with VUTEk production-level speeds for customers looking to take on more color critical and higher-premium jobs.
Fine art and P-O-P image quality are delivered through true variable drop greyscale technology, six colors plus white, and multi-layer print capability all in line. Greyscale technology delivers high image quality at production speeds while maximizing ink yield for a lower cost per print and low total cost of ownership.
“Customers visiting the EFI stand at drupa have commented that the image quality, speed and overall performance of the new QS2 Pro are impressive,” stated Ken Hanulec, vice president of marketing for EFI inkjet solutions.
Flexible EFI UV inks offer a wide color gamut for greater PMS color matching and consistency, and ensure the maximum reliability and performance of the printer. The ruggedly constructed VUTEk QS2 Pro is designed for extended operation and has an optional roll-to-roll feature for even more throughput.
The VUTEk QS2 Pro is supplied with the Fiery XF proServer to increase productivity, performance and efficiency of every job. It comes with an expanded set of Fiery RIP options, a high-performance hardware platform, JDF integration to EFI Web-to-Print and MIS/ERP solutions, and a complimentary13-month support and maintenance plan.
