(May 2005) posted on Thu May 05, 2005


At ISA, VUTEk announced two new wide-format
printers: the UltraVu 260
and the UltraVu II 5330.

The 103-in. roll-to-roll UltraVu
260
solvent printer features 6-color
(CMYKcm) printing, 360-dpi addressable
resolution (720-dpi apparent), and the
ability to print onto a variety of uncoated
media. Priced at $99,000, this entry-level
printer produces graphics that can be
used for P-O-P advertising, window displays,
floor graphics, posters, fleet graphics,
and outdoor banners.

Print speeds
range from 400 sq ft/hr in Enhanced 1-
pass mode to 200 sq ft/hr in Ultra 2-pass
mode. The printer also comes standard
with the ColorBurst Pro RIP, 3.25-l ink
tanks, and a 2-yr outdoor durability warranty,
which extends to a 5-yr warranty
with Aquashield. The UltraVu 260 will ship
mid-year 2005.

The 16.4-ft UltraVu II 5330 EC offers
resolutions up to 330 dpi (300 x 360), and
Fast-4 or high-quality 8-color solvent-ink
printing. Compared to the UltraVu 5330 EC,
which it replaces, the UltraVu II 5330 delivers
faster production, featuring print
speeds up to 2230 sq ft/hr in Fast-4 (4-
color x 2) High mode versus the older
machine's 2100 sq ft/hr and up to 670 sq
ft/hr in Fast-4 Ultra mode; in 8-color mode,
the UltraVu II 5330 EC speeds
range from 670 sq ft/hr in Enhanced
mode to 330 sq ft/hr Ultra mode.

Other
new features include the Smoothing feature
for producing distortion-free output
when printing images with heavy color
saturation, 3.25-l ink tanks, and the Low
Friction kit that allows difficult materials
to be run more easily. The new machine
also has upgraded software(UltraVu II
5330 RIP), which can be downloaded by
existing UltraVu 5330 customers. (Vutek: www.vutek.com)
