EFI announces 24f LED flatbed

EFI has mostly concentrated on hybrid UV printers for display printing but has now developed a new flatbed printer, the Pro 24f LED, which has been shown off at this week’s SGIA show in New Orleans, USA.

The EFI Pro 24f LED is a flatbed UV printer that prints CMYK plus white.

As the name suggests, it’s an LED UV machine. It has a 1.2 x 2.4m bed and takes media up to 50mm thick. The bed is divided into multiple zones with separate vacuum systems to reduce the need for masking.

It prints with CMYK with two white channels as standard and no further options. The printheads are Ricoh Gen5, with up to three variable drop sizes from 7 to 21 picolitres. These deliver 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution. It can produce 20 sqm/hr in Standard mode, which should be suitable for most POP work. There’s a faster Production mode that runs at 27 sqm/hr.

There’s an EFI Fiery proServer Core DFE built into the printer, which uses EFI’s Fast RIP acceleration technology plus a host of color management and production options delivering a turnkey solution.

It’s available for order in Europe and the UK now.
