Large format digital production company Rocket Graphics recently expanded its Watford-based facilities, adding 6,000 square feet to the Croxley Business Park site. This additional space is now home to a new 3.2m EFI VUTEk LX3 UV LED hybrid printer, purchased from CMYUK.
“The eight colours plus white printer configuration, with multilayer printing, is a winning combination for Rocket, who are always looking to offer the very latest applications and innovations to their customers” said Robin East, CMYUK group director.
According to Rocket’s Antony Rider the VUTEk LX3 has improved print quality and delivered a 400% increase in speed performance.
“The new VUTEk LX3 has not only improved print quality significantly, but has given us a 400% increase in speed performance,” he says. “We can also now offer our clients unrivalled white printing applications at significantly higher speeds and opacity. For example, we were recently able to deliver and install wall graphics measuring more than 3,000m in a very short turnaround time for the Ryder Cup, where both colour quality and speed were of the essence.”
The EFI VUTEk LX3 is designed for high production throughput, enabling shorter lead times to customers, while delivering the ultimate image quality, and with the versatility to support the widest range of materials and applications.
