Okay. We admit it. We’re suckers for any new printing technology that comes on the market. Of course, the driving purpose behind any purchase we make is to improve the product we provide our customers. But the cool factor doesn’t hurt. Playing with…, we mean working with high tech printers is fun! So, come on and meet the latest addition to our shop floor.
Reengineered for High Performance
Our old friends at EFI™just delivered our brand new VUTEk®h3 series next generation 3.2-meter hybrid printing platform. That’s quite a mouthful, but it’s really quite a machine. EFI told us it’s been reimagined, reinvented, reengineered and refined. How could we resist a pitch like that?
Actually, we are pleased to be one of the first companies in the US to implement this brand new EFI technology. Specifically designed for the high-speed, wide-format inkjet printing market, the VUTEk h3 delivers unmatched reliability and quality. Those are two of our favorite things! It’s also environmentally friendly, which we all can appreciate. By the way, the little 3 means our model has 3 rows of print heads for a speed of up to 74 boards per hour at 1200 dpi.
Here’s some really exciting news. Our latest tech upgrade has 8 color modes plus white, and up to 5-layer print capability in a single pass. Layers add texture and wide-format textures really make your graphics stand out in a crowd!
Accuracy = Quality
The VUTEk h3 is full of features for maximum accuracy because quality comes from laying down the ink in the right place every time. The features include: high-velocity UltraDrop™ Technology 7pL grayscale printheads (more about that later) that deliver precision dot placement and consistency from print to print at high production speeds; magnetic linear drive control and step mechanics and electronics; and a camera-based vision system for subpixel alignment, printhead density balance, and step and bi-directional set up
EFI’s UltraDrop™ Technology offers smaller drop sizes and more precise control. The results are ultra impressive:
- Native 7 pL printheads with true multi-drop addressability
- High apparent resolution and high-definition print quality
- Outstanding smoothness in shadows, gradients, and transitions
- Superb text quality with four-point text in both standard and high quality with fewer satellites and more clarity in all print modes
Just for You
We’re pretty picky about what we deliver to our customers. We want to give them high quality, ultra crisp images for signage, trade show exhibits, point of purchase displays…well, just about everything we do. We like to add value, as well. This printer’s speed is going to make us much more efficient on larger runs. That means we will be able to offer you competitive pricing on high production projects. We’re convinced the VUTEk®h3 will help us deliver on both counts. That’s the real reason we bought it.
