The Shanghai Ad & Sign event featured the worldwide debut of the new, 5-m-wide EFI Vutek Q5r LED roll-to-roll printer. Shanghai Kangda Penhua took home the printer from the show floor, adding the Vutek Q5r to build its offering producing premium-quality graphics for retail, décor and other production applications. Operating at speeds up to 672-sqmt/hour, the Vutek Q5r is EFI’s fastest roll-to-roll printer and brings important competitive advantages to Shanghai Kangda Penhua.

During the tradeshow, another printing company interested in state-of-the-art innovation, Shanghai BoEn Ad, also committed to an EFI Vutek Q5r to boost its digital graphics production offerings.

In addition, EFI celebrated Jiangsu Baicheng Digital Film and LC Group; both companies purchased the EFI Vutek h5 hybrid UV LED printer at the tradeshow. The 3.2-m-wide printer is an ideal, high-production solution that handles flexible and rigid substrates up to 5.08-cm thick at speeds up to 109 1.2x2.4-m boards, or 393-sqmt/hour.

Changyin Technology and EFI are delivering a new EFI Vutek 5r+ roll-to-roll printer to another business making big steps in its production offering, Ningbo Lixin Printing. Designed to offer superior throughput with a low total cost of ownership, the Vutek 5r+ printer delivers premium imaging with high ink coverage, high colour density and a wide colour gamut at speeds up to 487-sqmt/hour. And, like the Vutek Q5r, it offers many in-line finishing capabilities and other options that can greatly increase overall throughput for high-value display graphics work.

“The International Ad & Sign Expo was the second in-person trade show EFI has participated in Shanghai since re-openings have begun,” said Rodd Harrison, vice-president of sales, Asia Pacific, EFI. “In a region of the world where doing business in person is critical to building and maintaining relationships, we were gratified by the number of visitors to our stand and excited about the opportunity to refresh existing relationships and begin to build new ones. The printing companies we were able to celebrate at this year’s show are more than ready to take advantage of new opportunities to grow their businesses by adopting leading-edge solutions.”
