EFI and two of its partners,
International Sign Expo attendees can also take a virtual reality tour at the EFI booth of the VUTEk HS125 Pro high-speed hybrid printer and EFI’s breakthrough Nozomi C18000 press for ultra-high-speed direct-to-corrugated LED inkjet corrugated display and packaging production. Plus, EFI’s exhibit includes a complete portfolio of workflow software that helps businesses drive a stronger competitive advantage including the EFI Midmarket Print Suite and the new EFI MarketDirect customer engagement and cross-media communications platform.
A product portfolio geared toward customer growth and efficiency
The complete range of products gives users a distinct competitive advantage as customers look to diversify their offerings, add work in hot new markets, and develop highly streamlined, integrated workflows to increase throughput and drive down production costs. EFI customer D’Andrea Visual Communications (DVC), partnered with EFI to do just that and has reaped the benefits in its comprehensive retail point-of-purchase, experiential, exhibit and home décor production operations.
Just recently, DVC boosted its fabric soft signage offerings with the installation of a 3.4-meter EFI VUTEk FabriVU 340 aqueous dispersed dye-sublimation printer. The printer delivers high-quality images at true production level speeds while keeping running costs low and profit opportunities high. Printing either direct-to-fabric or on transfer paper using the same inkset, the printer produces dazzling displays, high-density backlit signage and more with ultra-high resolution four color printing.
“About 40% of our business is fabric-based, and that percentage is likely to climb with this new printer,” according to DVC Co-owner
The complete EFI Ecosystem for signage and graphics
Much like the advanced, fully integrated production operation DVC has in superwide-format printing, EFI’s exhibit at the International Sign Expo highlights how the EFI Ecosystem of products can efficiently and effectively automate and drive productivity throughout a signage and graphics business – from online job submission and production/business management to fast Fiery job processing, high-end output and more.
Another one of the inkjet production products on display, the EFI Pro 16h LED wide-format printer, sets a new standard for entry-level hybrid production. This extremely affordable 65-inch wide Fiery Driven™ printer includes white ink and delivers a low total cost of ownership and superior image quality for a broad range of applications. The award-winning printer has faster speeds than other EFI entry-level hybrid products, with some print modes offering up to a 30% higher throughput.
EFI also is showcasing its next-generation line of VUTEk roll-to-roll printers with the 3.5-meter EFI VUTEk 3r LED printer that offers the highest speeds and resolution in its class and provides superior quality using EFI UltraDrop™ Technology 7-picoliter print heads. The printer, which is also available in a 5-meter wide model, won a 2018 Wide-Format & Signage magazine Top Products Award in part for its integrated production workflow offerings, which allow print professionals to do more work in less time. Users can choose a complete set of value-added options, including an inline finishing system for all-in-one printing, x-cutting, slitting and collecting, and white and light colors.
Integrated workflow in the ‘Journey of a Job’ for graphics production
Another product at the tradeshow, version 6 of the EFI Midmarket Print Suite, features EFI Pace™ as its core MIS/ERP software and drives end-to-end efficiencies. The Suite’s Superwide Format component database streamlines estimating, planning and management in dedicated signage and graphics production printing environments. Plus, the Suite includes a new, award-winning workbench tool and deeper integration with imposition and fulfillment components.
EFI’s new customer communication platform software, MarketDirect Cross Media, eliminates many of the challenges in developing, distributing and tracking customer communications for loyalty programs, offers, newsletters, surveys and more. EFI’s award-winning Digital StoreFront® Web-to-Print eCommerce software, which provides an industry-leading print buyer experience designed to win new business, acquire new customers and grow existing businesses, also is on display at the show.
“Whether our customers are cutting their energy costs with our LED printers; expanding into reusable, high-end soft signage with VUTEk FabriVU printers; using Fiery technologies to achieve accurate, repeatable color across their printer fleets; or creating highly automated, seamless workflows to handle everything from order entry to final shipping and fulfillment, they are taking control of their success with the advanced innovations available across our portfolio,” said
