Sam Patel, CEO and managing director, Arrow Digital, said, “The EFI 16h is designed with a complete package of features, to assure lowest total cost of ownership, superior image quality, and access to the widest range of substrates and applications.”
This hybrid platform prints with four colours plus white and offers single-pass, multilayer printing for greater profit opportunities. The Ricoh Gen 5 printheads make it a production engine with a minimum drop size of seven-pl and maximum speed of up to 976-ft²/hr.
EFI’s LED imaging technology lowers power consumption and extends the range of supported substrates. Its long-lasting, consistent LED lamp cures prints at low temperatures, and the cool cure capability gives businesses the opportunity to print on a broader range of substrates, including thin or specialty media that cannot withstand other curing or drying methods. The lower-temperature curing also translates into reduced energy costs. And, unlike solvent printers used in wide-format graphics printing, the printer’s inks have virtually no VOCs.
The 1,200-dpi gives near-photographic images, saturated colours, and smooth gradations with true four-level, variable-drop greyscale print capability. The EFI Pro 16h is embedded with EFI Fiery pro server digital front end, featuring fast acceleration technology, plus print-on-demand functionality or the ability to print pre-ripped files at the printer interface.
Patel added, “The three layer white function is ultimate, as the customer can produce impressive day/night and block outs on rigid or clear films. Greater versatility with cool cure LED imaging, the printer’s mix of versatility, affordability and high-quality imaging drives greater profits and an expanding range of new product offerings.”
