Reprotronics LLC from Dubai will be the first printer in the region that is using the new EFI VUTEk GS5000r for production. The company signed the contract for the five-meter roll-to-roll UV printer at SGI. Located at Dubai Investment Park (DIP), the press opens new doors in terms of production capacity for the company which is operating already for two decades in the UAE. Its facilities span a range of over 10,000 sqm equipped with the latest equipment.
The high speed billboard press (up to 288 sqm/h) from EFI is suited for premium margin applications that require high image quality and billboard production-level speeds. Automated double sided printing capability for simple and accurate registration is another feature of the 8-colour machine that also prints white and can be operated in Fast-4 mode too. The press reacts flexibly to production changes. It is possible to also accommodate two substrate rolls printing simultaneously if need be.
“The flexible EFI™ VUTEk GS5000r increases profits, differentiates from the competition and improves customer satisfaction”, explains Mehdi Berrada Baby from Saga DG, EFI”s distributor in UAE and beyond. “It also is the only five-meter printer with UV ink that has its output covered by the coveted 3M™ MCS™ Warranty when you use co-branded EFI and 3M inks and print on 3M flexible media. “
