Press release from the issuing company

VUTEk Inc., the world's leading supplier of superwide format digital inkjet printers, is exhibiting two new solvent roll-to-roll printers and its most popular UV flatbed now with white ink print capability at the ISA Show, March 31 - April 2 in Las Vegas, Booth 4218. The all-new UltraVu 260 and UltraVu II 5330 roll-to-roll printers and the PressVu UV 200/600 flatbed/roll-to-roll printer with white plus print capability provide the features commercial imagers need at a cost they can afford to profitably expand their current capabilities and satisfy a wider variety of application needs. Making its debut at the ISA Show, the new UltraVu 260 entry-level, 2.6-meter digital inkjet printer will enable commercial imaging shops to step up to VUTEk image quality and higher-volume productivity at an attractive price. Priced at only $99,000, the UltraVu 260 solvent, roll-to-roll printer will help businesses looking to expand their current capabilities attract new revenue from jobs requiring superior image quality and faster turnarounds with true 360 dpi, six-color output. VUTEk is also introducing its new five-meter UltraVu II 5330 digital inkjet printer with improved productivity and increased functionality. The UltraVu II 5330, which replaces the previous UltraVu 5330 EC printer, delivers even faster production speeds in some print modes, allowing VUTEk to continue its legacy as the world's leading supplier of the fastest five-meter printer with speeds up to 2,230 square feet (207 square meters) per hour. The UltraVu II 5330 also provides the highest-quality printing in its class, with up to 330 dpi resolution and eight colors for images that are sharp, crisp and consistent. In addition, the UltraVu II 5330 is now available with VUTEk's SMOOTHING feature for the production of distortion free output when printing images with heavy color saturation, and a Low Friction Kit that allows difficult materials to be run more easily. Built upon the successful PressVu UV 200/600 platform, the new PressVu UV 200/600 W+, is a 600-dpi, four-color white plus printer that is capable of printing on a variety of sheet-fed or roll-to-roll materials, further expanding the range of viable applications commercial imagers can use to increase their service offering and become more profitable. The PressVu UV 200/600 W+ eliminates the need for many secondary finishing steps and associated materials. In addition, the PressVu UV 200/600 W+ allows customers to print white images and text directly on unusual surfaces like wood and glass, and on colored stock. Customers also will be able to print white fill (flood) as a base on clear and non-white substrates. The PressVu UV 200/600 W+ can print up to 80 inches (2 meters) wide at up to 350 square feet per hour (33 square meters per hour), and prints on rigid materials up to 1.75 inches (4.45 centimeters) thick. Also on exhibit at ISA, the PressVu UV 200/600, starting at only $199,000, provides the flexibility and superior performance of UV-curing flatbed technology at an affordable price. It is designed specifically for commercial imaging shops looking to achieve high-end image quality, greater productivity and improved profitability. Available in four- and six-color models, the PressVu UV 200/600 delivers 600 dpi, photographic color reproduction and crisp text reproduction. The PressVu UV 200/600 can print up to 80 inches (2 meters) wide up to 350 square feet per hour (33 square meters per hour), and prints on rigid materials up to 1.75 inches (4.45 centimeters) thick.
