CMYUK has taken delivery of the new EFI VUTEk Pro 30h at its demonstration and training centre in Shrewsbury, giving customers the first viewing of this UV LED hybrid printer in the UK.

The Pro 30h rounds out the EFI VUTEk portfolio perfectly, offering wide format 3.2m wide production at a highly competitive price point of £159,995 including delivery, warranty and installation.

This printer is designed to be ultra-productive and leverages proven technological innovations found in EFI’s Reggiani textile printers, high-speed h-series and single pass platforms. With ultra-quick set-up times and an infeed take-up system, the Pro 30h handles dual media rolls as well as continuous board printing, delivering 100% productivity by enabling boards to be printed back-to-back without stopping the printer carriage.

Like the EFI Reggiani, it utilises a magnetic linear drive rather than a pulley system ensuring a far quieter carriage, with less vibration to ensure consistent and precise ink dot placement. It also features dual monitors giving screen access for production control working at both the front and back of the press, increasing efficiency for the operative.

New inks

This printer also comes with XA inks, a new inkset that following the drive for productivity is available in large 5 litre bottle sizes. These new inks can be used for both roll-to-roll and rigid applications as they are flexible and also adhere very well to rigid sheets. They are durable and resistant to finger marks and any contusions bought about by the stacking of rigid materials.

With its latest printing models, EFI has transitioned away from UV mercury ink curing to cold LEDs. This has a number of benefits including low energy consumption, while curing with lower temperatures means the option of printing thinner, lighter, sustainable materials that don’t buckle or malfunction due to heat issues. Unlike UV mercury lamps that need to be replaced every year, LEDs have a 5-year lifespan.

The Pro 30h is a versatile, high production printer that delivers a stunning range of benefits at such a competitive price point. This 3.2m wide hybrid model really rounds-out the EFI wide format range very nicely. It was designed to be a quality, high speed production dynamo. It’s an impressive piece of equipment that combines very successful elements of EFI VUTEk technology packaged in one printer. It’s a very impressive proposition and we’ve already had a number of customers buzzing over its feature set. We anticipate that it will be a very strong contender in the market."
