Sam Patel, CEO and managing director at Arrow Digital said, “This is an extremely painful time for companies across the world. While the pandemic continues to take its toll, we at Arrow are amplifying our commitment to ensure that the business moves on and we stay positive. After a long break, we are back and have installed the EFI Pro 24f to hit the rigid market and show the possibilities with the EFI Pro 24f flatbed.”
The EFI Pro 24f leverages variable drop grayscale printhead technology and four colours plus dual channels of white to produce precise, high quality applications on a wide variety of substrates. A multi-zoned vacuum table holds media of different sizes, ensuring tight registration and high image quality.
"The printer's LED curing technology can help users broaden revenue streams, putting less stress on low-cost, low-melting-point and high-margin. This low energy consumption, combined with low volatile organic compounds and less waste and consumables, makes the EFI Pro 24f suitable for environmentally conscious print operations," the company told PrintWeek.
EFI also offers a choice of inks when you order a new EFI wide format printer. Proprietary EFI Pro Graphics Series UV inks have been custom-formulated based on real-world applications. EFI uses the same coloured pigments in each of the EFI Pro Graphics UV ink sets, so that customers can get the same extended colour gamut regardless of which ink set is chosen.
According to the company, the EFI-3M Pro Graphics UV ink can be used for a wide range of flexible applications, including those that need to be stretched, heated and can also be used for diverse range of rigid board and flexible media printing of indoor and outdoor applications. EFI Pro Graphics UV Rigid inks provide a surface resistance and are ideal for printing on specialty rigid media, such as lenticular lenses, steel, aluminum and wood.
"Many customers inquire about a robust flatbed printer, which can accomplish high value applications with unmatched quality and speed, and we are sure that the EFI Pro 24f flatbed will address all of these. The EFI Pro 24f prints high-value applications, such as lenticulars, membrane switches, photographic backlit displays and irregularly shaped and heavy objects," said Patel.
"It boasts print speeds up to 1157 ft2/hr, 1,200 x 1,200 dpi image quality and low curing temperatures that enable substrate diversity for higher-margin work. The EFI Pro 24f expands the possibilities and helps to serve customers in better and broader ways. It is able to handle media as thick as a two-inch block of wood or as thin as a window cling. This flexibility makes the EFI Pro 24f stand ahead from its competition," he concluded.
