EFI Releases VUTEk FabriVU Printer And Midmarket Print Suite Version 4.0


The VUTEk FabriVU aqueous-ink soft-signage printer series provides the highest speed and print resolution quality in its class.
The 3.4m dispersed dye-sublimation ink printer is developed by EFI Reggiani, a global leader in aqueous-based textile print technology based in Italy that EFI acquired in 2015. The new FabriVU product line, which is also available in a 1.8m size, runs environmentally friendly water-based inks and helps users produce stunning soft signage and banner applications. 

In the fast-growing market for fabric-printed soft signage, the new VUTEk FabriVU printer on display offers reliable, accurate printing at speeds up to 464sqm (5000 square feet). The printer gives customers a remarkable competitive advantage, as it has the highest productivity in its class, as well as the highest quality with ultra-high resolutions up to 2400 dpi. A patented ink circulation system on the printer prevents nozzles from drying out, reducing ink costs by up to 15%. 
A new, major release of the EFI Midmarket Print Suite MIS workflow, version 4.0, is especially beneficial for the signage and graphics community, as it offers new features specifically designed to meet the needs of display graphics/super-wide format print providers.
The suite features EFI’s Pace™ MIS software at its core and includes a range of out-of-the-box, integrated systems that are certified by EFI. In addition, the suite edition addresses product-specific applications unique to the super-wide format print space, such as fleet and vehicle wraps, point-of-purchase (POP) signage and outdoor graphics. The enhanced capabilities in the Midmarket 4.0 suite also integrate with EFI Fiery DFE systems for wide- and super-wide format production. A multiple object import tool in the software also helps simplify management tasks on recurring chain store POP campaigns and similar projects.
EFI’s complete ecosystem of workflow products, DFEs and high-quality inkjet wide- and super-wide format printers provide a complete, reliable production offering for higher-quality, more-efficient printing, with intriguing new possibilities for businesses looking to expand into new vertical markets.
‘Operators of signage and display graphics businesses have an unprecedented range of applications to pursue today,’ said Scott Schinlever, senior vice president and general manager, EFI Inkjet Solutions, ‘and EFI is proud to be the partner that can help them bring these opportunities to life. At the International Sign Expo, visitors will truly see the Imaging of Things concept brought to life and are guaranteed to leave with many ideas for business growth and improved profitability.’
