Ultra affordable: the VUTEk PressVu UV 200/600 makes UV large format printing much more affordable and accessible
VUTEk says the PressVu UV 200/600 digital inkjet printer is loaded with features that its owners would expect to find on more expensive models – like four- and six-colour, 600dpi capabilities that deliver photographic colour reproduction and crisp text reproduction. The company also heralds the machine as offering "virtually limitless versatility and industrial-strength construction features" to allow operators to print on a variety of sheet-fed or roll-to-roll materials around the clock.
It is described as being like having two-printers-in-one, meaning that owners should be able to expand their customer service capabilities and satisfy a wider variety of long-term outdoor and indoor application needs. According to VUTEk, this device is ideal for the production of point-of-purchase advertising, long-term outdoor graphics, posters, exhibition graphics, backlit displays, display graphics, bus shelter graphics and banners and signage.
The PressVu UV 200/600 printer uses durable UV-curing inks that can be applied directly on both flexible and rigid substrates, so the time and expense of finishing steps such as mounting and lamination are eliminated. The switch between roll-to-roll and rigid materials has also been streamlined to be quick and easy. Set-up can be completed by a single person, so operators will spend much more time producing profitable output.
Available in four- and six-colour models, the PressVu UV 200/600 can print up to two metres wide at 33sqm per hour, and is capable of printing on a variety of rigid materials, including wood, metal or glass, up to 1.75 inches thick. The PressVu UV 200/600 comes standard with a set of rigid extension tables and easily accommodates the addition of others for handling of longer board sizes.
