EFI's New High-Speed VUTEk HS100 Pro Shows Its True Colors at drupa

Latest Hybrid Platform Brings Revolutionary Features and Low TCO to the Digital Print Sector

FOSTER CITY, Calif., May 2, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Making its worldwide debut at drupa is EFI's (Nasdaq:EFII) latest UV-curable digital press that represents a true replacement for analog equipment with the productivity of screen and image quality approaching offset. The 3.2m EFI™ VUTEk® HS100 Pro is a versatile high-speed digital UV press with productivity and image quality that will appeal to screen printers and the commercial sector wanting a cost-effective digital platform to produce longer sheet runs at a low total cost of ownership.

EFI's Pin & Cure imaging technology, driven by the Orion OS platform, delivers precise ink lay-down for critical color accuracy and consistency, gloss control and a increased color gamut — all with the productivity and digital efficiencies to accommodate more versioning and localization. With impressive throughput speeds at rates of up to 100 boards per hour and up to 50 boards per hour in P-O-P mode, the VUTEk HS100 Pro comes with true greyscale print head technology and up to eight colors, including white and specials, for maximum ink yield and a low cost per print over analog.

"This next generation EFI VUTEk press should win every side-by-side comparison with existing digital presses in terms of offering the best combination of speed, output quality and return on investment," said Scott Schinlever, senior vice president and general manager of Inkjet Solutions at EFI. "The printer brings greater flexibility and workflow integration, with streamlined and versatile production on longer run lengths. Combined with advanced production features, warning and detection systems, and the Fiery XF proServer, the HS100 Pro is a true 24/7 solution ideal for the most demanding production environments."
