Joseph Graphics the UAE's leading sign and graphics company who were amongst the pioneers of large format digital printing in the UAE have chosen the EFI/Vutek Pro32R for their 3.2m roll to roll printing requirements.
Joseph's were comparing many brands and doing an extensive technical evaluation for their first UV led 3.2m roll to roll printer and were drawn to the EFI Pro32r as it incorporated EFI's next generation technology which places it firmly ahead of all other brands in the UV, led curing, printer market. Mudassir Ahmed Khan, Joseph's head of their large format printing department visited the EFI demonstration center in Belgium in January along with Stephen Jomartz, Dynagraph's regional sales manager, for a technical presentation of the printer as it was going to be the first unit EFI "next generation printer" shipped to the Middle East. One of the main things to be tested along with print quality and speed was the EFI claim that not only did their technology have the most competitive ink price but EFI were able to get a yield of approximately 140sqm for every litre of ink which is dramatically better than the competition who achieve 60 to 90sqm per liter of ink. Printing a set of test files brought to the center by Joseph's the Pro32R delivered 142sqm per liter on those files in a live test. Another important factor was the fact that EFI is the only UV printer company that develops and produces their own ink and is the only UV printer supplier that has co-branded 3M ink and is able to deliver 3M MCS warranty, when printed on applicable 3M vinyls. This will enable Joseph's to move 3M MCS production away from more expensive technologies which were the only option available previously. EFI's bulletproof reliability and the EFI Fiery Rip software which allows for ripping up to 12 times faster than other rips, print, and rip at the same time and superior colour control also helped close the case for EFI. EFI's next-generation technology with its extremely low per square meter costs is available in a range which includes everything from entry level affordable printers to fully optioned models delivering the fastest speeds in the market. The range includes 3 levels of 3.2m roll to roll with the top model delivering 406sqm/h printing, 2 levels of 5m roll to roll with the top model delivering 487sqm/h, a range of hybrid printers from mid-level up to high-end machines printing 109 boards per hour and true flatbed printer models in two sizes. This first EFI next-generation UV led curing printer joins the five EFI FabriVU dye-sublimation printers installed in the Middle East over the past two years. With the lowest cost per square meter, best quality and fastest speeds the FabriVU is the number one choice worldwide for the leading fabric and soft signage print service providers.
