A 126-in. roll-to-roll, entry-level production UV machine.
EFI has introduced its EFI R3225 printer, a 126-in. roll-to-roll, entry-level production UV machine, and the first EFI printer that carries neither the company’s Vutek nor Rastek badges.
The 4-color (CMYK) R3225 provides eight-level, variable-drop grayscale heads and a top resolution of 600 x 1200 dpi. Speeds range from 939 sq ft/hr in Express mode (2-pass, 300 dpi) to 547 sq ft/hr in Signage Plus mode (4-pass, 600 dpi) and 138 sq ft/hr in Ultra Quality mode (18-pass, 900 dpi). It ships with a complete set of R Series inks, supplied in 3.25-liter bottles.
It utilizes a roll-to-roll vacuum platen drive system and can handle flexible substrates up to 10.5-ft wide and 0.04-in. thick. An EFI Fiery XF RIP is standard. Applications for the R3225 include P-O-P, banners, signage, fleet graphics, exhibition graphics, and more.
Price: Approximately $160,000. The EFI R3225 will be available in Q2 2012.
