Image Options is the site of one of the first U.S. installations of the EFI VUTEk Q5r roll-fed UV LED superwide printer from Electronics For Imaging, Inc.
Image Options executives worked with EFI’s inkjet team to test various substrates with the 208-inch-wide printer and were impressed with the results. Among the standout differentiators were the Q5r printer’s overall quality, thin ink film, sustainability and efficiency, technical options, speed, and improved versatility. Image Options is taking advantage of white and clear ink options available for the printer as well. And, with an upgrade scheduled for this quarter, Image Option’s VUTEk Q5r printer will be one of the first in the world to receive EFI’s new in-line visual inspection system.
“We are very loyal to EFI, but we are not blind to EFI,” Brewer said about evaluating options for new equipment. “We looked at competing available products currently on market as well, as we did our due diligence.” According to him, nothing Image Options looked at reached the same level of capability that the new EFI VUTEk Q5r superwide roll-to-roll machine promised.
“We are always excited to see the advancements and opportunities long-term customers like Image Options create for themselves by staying on the leading edge of innovation,” said EFI chief revenue officer Frank Mallozzi. “Image Options has also been a very helpful customer, providing valuable feedback to help us continually advance our products. We strive to always be a positive factor in Image Options’ success, and we look forward to even more collaboration in the future.”
