The new superwide format printer, delivers superior image quality on both rigid and flexible substrates up to 5.08 cm thick and has the ability to change between rigid and flexible substrate types in less than a minute, to produce output up to 74 square metres per hour.
The Vutek QS2000 has the ability to print white ink in six different variations, including overprint, underprint, spot, underspot, fill and overspot and has added proprietary image smoothing technologies to ensure imgae consistency.
To support the new printer, a fully compatible EFI Fiery XP production RIP, or optional Colorburst RIP is available, offering the integration of additional business processes in the future through EFI software products.
Other unique features of the Vutek QS2000 are, a feed-side control module to eliminate wasted steps by initiating print from both sides of the printer and a multi-job layout function through the Vutek graphic interface - allowing users to combine separate jobs into the one print job.

“The introduction of the Vutek QS2000 printer and Fiery XF production RIP combines full productivity, unmatched quality and a sophisticated, yet intuitive RIP,” he says. “This is the first step in realising EFI’s vision of fully integrated business processes throughout the print shop,” says Dziesietnik.
