MUNICH, Germany, May 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Electronics For Imaging, Inc., continues on its innovative path to create more opportunities for customers to achieve profitable growth with the announcement of the company’s first UV LED inkjet inks for thermoformed 3D sign and display applications, along with another breakthrough in the analogue-to-digital transformation – the EFI™ Nozomi 14000 SD single-pass printer for sign and display graphics that is more than twice as productive as the fastest multi-pass/shuttle-based printer. Along with EFI’s new technology announcements, the Londonderry, N.H.-based company is presenting its leading portfolio of sign and display graphics technology – including advanced roll-to-roll, hybrid and soft-signage graphics printers – at the FESPA Global Print Expo, 23-26 May, at Messe Munich in Hall A1, Stand B50.
EFI Nozomi single-pass technology for sign and display graphics
The new EFI LED thermoformable ink announced at FESPA extends the company’s long history of innovation and development as a world-leading manufacturer of digital inkjet inks for industrial and display graphics applications. EFI Transform-TF LED thermoforming ink is an extremely flexible, UV LED curable digital ink for first-surface interior and second-surface exterior/backlit applications where common thermoplastic is specified for deep-draw thermoforming. The ink, which offers outstanding elongation characteristics for heat bending and routing without chipping or adhesion problems, is available now for the EFI Pro 30f flatbed and EFI VUTEk® 32h hybrid flatbed/roll-to-roll printer models. EFI Transform-TF ink will be available for EFI VUTEk h3 and h5 printers in Q3. EFI Transform-TF ink is part of a full portfolio of inks and coatings available from EFI, including EFI Armor coatings and the award-winning EFI UltraClear Coat, a versatile spot or full clear coat ink available with EFI LED roll-to-roll printers that can be used for decorative, high-quality effects on prints or as a final coating to protect graphics against abrsion, chemicals and fading. UltraClear Coat prints inline, simultaneously with the image – without slowing down production speeds in certain printer models – in gloss or matte finishes.
“We’re looking forward to meeting with our customers at FESPA, one of the most important shows in this segment, and showing them the capabilities and versatility of solutions from EFI that allow them to grow both their revenues and their profitability,” said Ken Hanulec, EFI Vice President of Worldwide Marketing. “Our dynamic, comprehensive portfolio – with new and innovative inks and coatings, and more than a dozen production printers offering the most advanced technology available – speaks to our commitment to helping our customers thrive no matter where they are on their journey in providing high-end, versatile display graphics.”
