EFI Concludes Successful SGIA 2008 in Atlanta
Foster City, CA (November 11, 2008)--EFI, a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today reported that its participation in the 2008 SGIA Exposition and Conference, held at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center during October, yielded results that exceeded expectations. Central to EFI’s exhibit was the North American unveiling of the VUTEk DS8300 printer. This full-width array flatbed UV printer closes the gap between analog and digital technologies and is redefining the superwide format industry by providing a digital solution for the production of photo quality graphics at breakthrough speeds with digital economics and the advantages of UV technology.
At the show, EFI also announced its intent to acquire Raster Printers as a demonstration of its dedication to bringing the broadest array of innovative products to the printing industry, especially in the growing display graphics market. Raster printers, currently marketed under the Daytona brand, will be rebranded as Rastek under EFI ownership and offers sign and display graphics companies an ease-of-entry strategy into the roll-to-roll and rigid substrate UV printing of display graphics.
DS8300: A New Category of High-Speed Digital Flatbed Printers
The DS8300 defines a new category of high-speed digital flatbed printers representing a tipping point in productivity, image quality and flexibility. Its new digital economics and capabilities will be attractive to analog screen printers, commercial printers, and leading-edge digital printers. The innovative DS8300 design and architecture enables the cost-effective production of higher volume jobs using a digital press than ever before possible. The incredible speed and resolution made possible by the DS8300’s innovative full-width print array sets this VUTEk printer apart from all other competitive offerings available in the market today.
