Rastek H652 UV hybrid and Rastek T1000 flatbed.
EFI has introduced two new entry-level production wide-format UV printers: the Rastek H652 UV hybrid and the Rastek T1000 UV flatbed. Both printers feature grayscale printheads and both are aimed at production print shop environments “where fast service, superior image quality, and printing on the widest range of substrates are the keys to customer satisfaction and increasing profits,” says EFI.
The Rastek H652 (CMYK+W) builds on the success of the Rastek H650, adding nearly twice the speed: It can reach speeds of up to 455 sq ft/hr in Express mode (2-pass, 300 dpi) and 255 sq ft/hr in Quality mode (4-pass, 600 dpi); top resolution is 1200 dpi. The H652 can handle rigid and flexible media up to 1.8-in. thick and 64-in. wide.
The Rastek T1000 flatbed (CMYK+W) has a three-zone 52 x 98-in. vacuum table and can accommodate media up two-inches thick, including difficult-to-handle substrates that require superior hold-down. It boasts speeds up to 460 sq ft/hr in Express mode (2-pass, 600 x 300 dpi) and 317 sq ft/hr in Quality mode (4-pass, 600 dpi); top resolution is 1200 dpi.
