Established in 2011, Octopus Advertising is one of the leading manufacturers of conventional and modular signage, point of purchase (POP) material and displays, event branding, retro reflective signage, aluminium channel letters, totem, outdoor advertising, and large format and offset printing.

Tejas Thakkar, director at Octopus Advertising said, “The market is growing in terms of reach and demand. Currently, we have three UV machines installed in our facility and we have decided to add the EFI Vutek technology to our assets. We are glad to have installed the EFI machine from Arrow Digital, which provides good client servicing and troubleshooting.”

The EFI Vutek GS 3200 is a flatbed roll-to-roll UV printer in the super-wide format printing domain. It is said to deliver a combination of superior photorealistic quality and high productivity.

The machine can print on different direct-to-substrate materials and offers a range of applications from exhibition graphics, fine arts, photographic reproduction to POP displays for signage, banners, posters and commercial graphics.

The Vutek GS 3200 is capable of delivering up to 2,400-sqft/hr, enabling continuous board-to-board, board-to-sheet and roll-to-roll printing capabilities.  With eight-colour plus white, switchable to Fast-5, the machine can provide a dual resolution of 600dpi or 1,000 dpi for high quality graphics.

The machine’s three-layer and white-layer printing capability allows printing white in six variations, such as overprint, under-print, spot, under-spot, fill and over-spot. It also offers a dual-roll capability that enables printing up to two 60-inch rolls simultaneously. EFI’s portfolio of an integrated solution is said to increase productivity and provide versatility.

“The EFI Vutek offers a combination of quality and efficiency, needed to grow our business and differentiate our offerings from others. We look forward to upgrade with the latest technologies with the support of Arrow Digital,” Thakkar concluded.
