ER2 Image Group Adds VUTEk h3 Printer to Shop
ER2 Image Group, a full-service grand format printing company, announced it has taken delivery of an EFI VUTEk h3 series next generation 3.2-meter hybrid printing platform. Specifically designed for high-speed, wide-format inkjet printing, the VUTEk h3 delivers unmatched reliability and quality with 3 rows of print heads for speeds up to 74 boards per hour at 1200 dpi.
The printer has 8 color modes plus white, and up to 5-layer print capability in a single pass. “We are pleased to be one of the first US companies to implement this new technology,” said Gary C. Schellerer, ER2’s Vice President/Partner. “Layers add texture and wide-format textures really make graphics pop!”
The VUTEk h3 attains maximum accuracy from laying down ink in the right place every time. Features include: high-velocity UltraDrop™ Technology 7pL grayscale printheads that deliver precision dot placement and consistency from print to print at high production speeds; magnetic linear drive control and step mechanics and electronics; and a camera-based vision system for subpixel alignment, printhead density balance, and step and bi-directional set up. The results are impressive:
- High apparent resolution and high-definition print quality
- Outstanding smoothness in shadows, gradients, and transitions
- Superb text quality with four-point text in both standard and high quality with fewer satellites and more clarity in all print modes
“The VUTEk h3 will help us deliver high quality, ultra crisp images,” Schellerer said. “It’s also going to make us more efficient on larger runs, which means we can offer customers competitive pricing on high production projects.”
