A decade ago you could get awesome quality from printers of 1.6m and 1.8m width. Now we are looking for printers of superwide size (3.2m and 5m) that can provide fine art photo quality, giclee quality: this way your POP prints will awe your clients (and the people visiting the mall, store, restaurant, etc.).
In February 2020, Dr. Hellmuth visited one of the EFI factories and we are preparing an evaluation of the innovative features on several wide and super wide roll-to-roll UV-curing printers:
- EFI VUTEk 3r+/5r+
- EFI VUTEk D3r/D5r
- EFI Pro 32r+
We thank EFI, especially Tomer Ohavi, Product Marketing Manager at EFI, for shipping to our main office in Guatemala, several of the samples printed during the evaluation.
The images are sharp with no banding nor edge splatter. The color gamut looks natural and accurate. The 14p text on these samples looked sharp. This was the size used in the designs but all of these EFI roll-to-roll models are capable of printing text several points smaller than 14p. Yes, high quality has been available for several years, but our goal is to document this with test prints. So now the team at FLAAR-REPORTS documents that you can obtain the quality you have been looking for with the EFI VUTEk D3r and D5r (other models are also excellent quality; the “D-series” are the ones we tested at the factory).
