Press release from the issuing company

VUTEk, a division of EFI, will exhibit its popular PressVu UV family of UV-curing flatbed/roll-to-roll printers, designed to help screen printers and digital imagers increase productivity, expand their capabilities and be more profitable, at the SGIA Digital Expo, Phoenix, AZ, December 8-10, 2005. Visitors to the VUTEk booth will see the new 3.2-meter, PressVu UV 320/400, the most productive printer in its price class, and the PressVu UV 200/600, offering the highest image quality and greatest versatility available today in a UV-curing printer. The all-new 3.2-meter, PressVu UV 320/400 UV-curing flatbed printer, starting at $299,000, is the ideal addition for digital image providers who want to increase their productivity and expand their capabilities with a printer that costs far less than competitive models. It accommodates rigid substrates up to 126 inches (3.2 meters) wide, and offers excellent productivity at up to 1,000 square feet (93 square meters) per hour, equating to 20 - 4’ x 8’ (14 - 2 meter x 3 meter) sheets per hour with true good quality output. It also features roll-to-roll capability, giving customers true flexibility to offer a full range of services. It is the ideal printer for applications ranging from billboard to high quality P-O-P and everything in between. The PressVu UV 320/400 is available as a four-color model, and prints high-quality, 400 dpi resolution images on rigid substrates up to 1.75 inches (4.45 cm) thick. Ruggedly built for reliable, around-the-clock productivity, the PressVu UV 320/400 prints on a wide range of sheet-fed and roll-to-roll substrates. Set up is quick and easy, and can be done with one person in less than one minute, allowing customers to focus their time on producing, not preparing. The two-printer-in-one capability of the PressVu UV 320/400 allows customers to print on both rigid and flexible materials, so customers can offer a more comprehensive range of applications, increasing their value to their customers while driving up profitability. The switch between flatbed and roll-to-roll can be completed in less than a minute, barely affecting the printers overall productivity. Starting at only $199,000, VUTEk’s popular PressVu UV 200/600 UV-curing flatbed and roll-to-roll printer is designed specifically for digital imaging shops looking to achieve high-end image quality and greater productivity at an affordable cost. The PressVu UV 200/600 digital inkjet printer is loaded with features you would expect to find on more expensive models – like stunning four- or six-color, 600 dpi capabilities that deliver photographic color reproduction and crisp text reproduction. Its virtually limitless versatility and industrial-strength construction allow operators to print on a variety of sheet-fed or roll-to-roll materials around the clock. Because it is like having two-printers-in-one, owners should be able to expand their customer service capabilities and satisfy a wider variety of long-term outdoor and indoor application needs. The switch between roll-to-roll and rigid materials has also been streamlined to be quick and easy. Set-up can be completed by a single person, so operators spend less time preparing and more time producing profitable output. Available in four-color, six-color and four-color white+ models, the PressVu UV 200/600 can print up to 80 inches (two meters) wide at up to 350 square feet (33 square meters) per hour, and prints 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 the accurate and easily repeatable matching of target colors is now possible.
