Superwide EFI LED double for esp group
An investment in a 5m EFI VUTEk GS5500lxr Pro roll-to-roll LED printer and a 3.2-metre VUTEk GS3250lx Pro hybrid roll/flatbed LED printer by Kent-based esp technologies group now enables the company to offer a full range of flexible and rigid applications across all materials.
Specialising in providing a vast range of printed materials for leading brands in retail, plus the event, exhibition and museum sectors, esp technologies group also produces general display work for interior and exterior locations.
Founded in 1993 as a high-end screen printing company, esp moved into superwide format digital print seven years later with the purchase of one of the first VUTEk 5300 5m, roll-fed platforms. Subsequent investments included a VUTEk QS3200 printer which broadened the company's capabilities into digital print with its ability to generate very high-quality work on rigid and flexible substrates.
"Many of the application types we produced back in the year 2000 are still required now," says Stephen Hood, managing director of esp technologies group. "Coming from a large format screen-printing environment, the convenience of using an inkjet engine quickly manifested itself for short run and one-off orders. As a result, 5m wide output has been an important part of our portfolio throughout the years.”
Both new machines also benefit from EFI's LED "cool cure" technology, which requires up to 82% less energy - an ideal complement to esp's environmental ethic and desire to produce greener output.
