EFI Innovations At SGIA Expo Fuel New Opportunities For Printing Companies

ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EFI™ (Nasdaq:EFII), a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, will showcase the latest advancements in its industry-leading portfolio of UV-curable inkjet printers, workflow software and MIS/ERP products at the 2013 SGIA Expo. New offerings will include the 3.2-meter EFI VUTEk® GS3250lxr Pro, the first dedicated roll-to-roll printer to use EFI's highly successful LED "cool cure" technology.

"Our SGIA exhibit highlights the new opportunities customers have to expand their media options, remove process steps, reduce operating costs and produce higher-margin jobs," said Scott Schinlever, senior vice president and general manager of EFI's Inkjet Solutions. "With the new VUTEk GS3250lxr Pro, we are extending the benefits they get with our LED curing technology – a proven, green technology that saves many of our customers money by reducing their consumables waste and energy consumption. This technology also provides higher uptime with greater reliability because it uses no traditional heat in the curing process."

With the launch of the VUTEk GS3250lxr Pro, EFI – a winner of SGIA's 2013 Sustainability Recognition Award – now has the industry's largest fleet of environmentally friendly LED inkjet production offerings. VUTEk LED printers are also part of the industry's broadest portfolio of digital inkjet and print workflow products. EFI's portfolio is a collective offering that features narrow web, wide format and superwide format printers; market-leading MIS, ERP and web-to-print systems; and EFI Fiery®, the world's most popular color digital front end (DFE) platform.

At the SGIA Expo, EFI is also announcing commercial availability for its VUTEk GS Pro-TF thermoforming system, a UV printer and ink combination that advances the industry's analog-to-digital transformation by bringing inkjet printing to the thermoformed product decoration market. Printing firm Interstate Graphics Inc., Machesney Park, Ill., is the first business to use the technology, following the October installation of a 2-meter VUTEk GS2000 Pro-TF printer operating VUTEk GS-TF inks.

"Today, we do screenprinting for customers who want thermoformed work," said Interstate Graphics President John Norwood. "Our new EFI VUTEk GS2000 Pro-TF is an option for them to go digital."
