EFI VUTEk FabriVU 340i+
Expanded applications and in-line fixation with this soft Signage Printer
The EFI™ VUTEk® FabriVU® 340i new generation dye-sublimation printer offers an expanded application range, production level speeds, and outstanding image quality. Its in-line fixation capabilities enable users to print direct to textile and sublimate inline through a single process, ensuring production runs are immediately ready for finishing and shipping.
With the EFI™ VUTEk® FabriVU® 340i model, customers benefit from the lowest acquisition cost plus lowest total cost of ownership. So, when you want to offer soft signage, but don’t have the floor space or budget for a dedicated calender heat press, the VUTEk FabriVU 340i dye-sublimation printer fits your needs – brilliantly.
Soft signage printing for expanded applications
The EFI™ VUTEk® FabriVU® 340i features advanced media control enabling direct printing to a wide range of polyester-based materials up to 3.4 metres in width. Soft signage applications include exhibition graphics, backlit graphics, retail fixture wraps, front lit graphics, block-out banners, flags, and interiors.
As your business and volumes grow, the inline sublimation can be turned off when offline sublimation is added, extending its capabilities to paper transfer printing for expanded application opportunities.
No compromise production-level print speeds
The EFI™ VUTEk® FabriVU® 340i printer operates at industrial-level speeds so users can reliably deliver tight turnaround times or large volumes in a single shift. It offers an outdoor print mode of up to 480m2 per hour, a production mode that reaches up to 248 m2 per hour, and a top-quality backlit print mode that prints up to 166 m2 per hour.
- 8 high-performance printheads in a CMYK x 2 printhead array configuration.
- EFI’s platen and extraction technology system enables inline sublimation in one easy step.
- Auto printhead cleaning and capping station to keep your system up and running.
- Industrial build for maximum reliability and uptime.
Supreme quality imaging
The EFI™ VUTEk® FabriVU® printer offers ultra-high resolution up to 2,400 dpi and three level greyscale printing with 7pL, 12pL and 18pL drop sizes. The use of high-resolution print heads optimises ink droplets for the output of smooth transitions and perfect crispness. This also means exceptional 4-colout printing with a wide colour gamut that delivers rich blacks, and deep colour saturation for exceptional high-quality, backlit fabric displays.
Lower ink consumption and less waste
Our medium-viscosity inks contain higher concentrations of dye and less water per litre making them easier to dry, and ink usage is up to 30% less when compared to competitive units.
New generation platen technology significantly reduces reprints due to its reliable and consistent heat distribution, saving on materials, inks, and time.
Our ink recovery system means that up to 95% of ink lost during purging can be saved. Almost no ink goes down the drain, which adds to overall production efficiencies and profit gains.
