Electronics For Imaging, Inc. announced that Phase 3 Marketing and Communications and its subsidiary, Gigantic Color, have purchased two high-performing, 5-meter EFI VUTEk 5r LED roll-to-roll printers with EFI Fiery proServer Premium 6.4 digital front ends (DFEs). The company will operate the pair of VUTEk superwide-format production systems at its production facilities in Atlanta and Dallas, leveraging the printers’ superb quality and productivity to solidify and strengthen Phase 3/Gigantic Color’s position as a wide-format graphics market leader.
“For us, this is a strategic purchase based on the quality and production speed of the VUTEk. The quality rivals or surpasses any other printer on the market, and it does that at true production speeds, which is amazing,” said Troy McGinnis, Phase 3’s Executive Vice President, Print Production and Marketing Logistics. “The other selling point is the inline finishing option. When you’re dealing with 5-meter material, having the ability to cut on the fly speeds up our finishing three fold. That was huge.
“This purchase solidifies our position as an industry leader and allows us to continue to deliver the best quality and values to our clients,” he added.
