The fully-loaded printer offers production-level LED UV-curing hybrid printer with true greyscale technology that extends the range of supported substrates and print providers’ bottom line with an innovative ink-curing technology
Arrow Digital has installed Efi™ VUTEk® GS2000LX Pro at Aakar Sign and Prints, Ahmedabad. Efi™ LED VUTEk® GS2000LX Pro is a two-meter flatbed/roll-fed UV hybrid printer. It can be used as a replacement for multiple lower-productivity printers or added as a complementary piece of equipment to increase current printing capacity with a larger range of direct to substrate printing. The printer is a fully-loaded, production-level LED UV-curing hybrid printer with true greyscale technology that extends the range of supported substrates and print providers’ bottom line with an innovative ink-curing technology. It reduces operating costs with less material fall out and smooth production runs, and boosts productivity with its continuous printing capability. No other technology in its class can deliver the environmental benefits to satisfy demands for a greener printing solution with less waste, fewer consumables and decreased power consumption.
On the installation, Apurva Shah, MD, Aakar Sign, says, “We are thrilled to move forward after a lot of research with the LED UV from Arrow/Efi. Looking at great opportunities in the signage market, we had decided to move to a Greener Technology and the most trusted brand is Efi Vutek in this segment. It did not take much time for us to figure out and shortlist our requirement, moreover working with Arrow has always been a great experience and we feel very comfortable and secure in their support and their ongoing R&D in developing various materials and applications which are crucial in developing UV inkjet markets. The LED technology has fascinated me a lot as now we could print a lot many applications which earlier was a nightmare with our Solvent Printers”
This green machine offers eight-colours plus double white printing for photorealistic quality and Fast-5 printing for production speeds. It comes with dual resolution capability of 600 dpi or 1000 dpi and delivers production speeds, taking up less floor space than comparable printers. It allows you to print direct to a variety of rigid and flexible substrates, eliminating mounting and lamination of flexible materials for rigid applications and includes in-line multilayer and white ink printing for a whole range of applications.
As with most equipment from Arrow and their fantastic service and support and end-to-end digital workflows and pan India support for corporate brands we look forward to increasing our capacity in the very near future along with many of the finishing systems they offer.
