The new press models offer a significant speed increase, printing up to 225 boards per hour on the HS125 F4 and up to 190 boards per hour on the HS100 F4. The presses also include the proven, standard HS features and options customers have come to expect such as pin and cure, variable-drop grayscale imaging, and full- and semi-automated materials handling.
"Our CMYK x 2 configuration, which is available in several other EFI VUTEk superwide format printers, is an ideal offering for out-of-home applications where total cost per square foot is key," said Ken Hanulec, vice president of marketing, EFI Inkjet. "These two new printers run more than 50% faster, and a speed boost like this gives our customers an important new opportunity to increase their margins."
EFI's new VUTEk HS presses for Fast Graphics out-of-home production will be available this quarter from EFI. Also beginning this quarter, customers who purchase VUTEk HS125 Pro and HS100 Pro presses can convert them to the new F4 models through a modification completed in the field.
