New EFI Pro 16h LED UV hybrid printer installed at Arrow Digital’s demo centre in Ahmedabad


Arrow Digital has recently installed a new EFI Pro 16h LED UV hybrid printer at its state-of-the-art demo centre in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. The hybrid platform prints with four colour plus white ink printing and single-pass, multilayer printing for greater profit opportunities. The RICOH Gen 5 printheads make it a production engine with minimum drop size of 7pl and maximum speed of up to 976 sq ft/hr. EFI’s cool-cure LED imaging technology in the printer lowers power consumption and extends the range of supported substrates. Sam Patel, CEO & Managing Director, Arrow Digital, says EFI 16h is designed with a complete package of features that assure lowest total cost of ownership, superior image quality, and access to the widest range of substrates/applications.

The long-lasting, consistent LED lamp in EFI Pro 16h LED UV hybrid printer cures prints at low temperatures and its cool cure capability offers technology to print on a broader range of substrates, including thin or specialty media that cannot withstand other curing or drying methods. The lower-temperature curing also translates into reduced energy costs. The printer’s inks have virtually no VOCs.

Capable to churn in 1200 dpi, EFI Pro 16h LED UV hybrid printer gives near-photographic images, saturated colours, and smooth gradations with true four-level, variable-drop greyscale print capability. The printer is embedded with EFI Fiery proServer digital front end, featuring FAST RIP acceleration technology, plus RIP and print-on-demand functionality or ability to print pre-ripped files at the printer interface.

Another added feature of the printer is its choice for EFI ProGraphics Series UV inks to best meet unique application needs and EFI – 3M ProGraphics UV ink for a wide range of flexible applications, including those need to be stretched or heated or required the 3M MCS Warranty. EFI ProGraphics UV POP inks are made for the most diverse range of rigid board and flexible media for indoor and outdoor applications.

Sam mentions that the three layer white function of EFI Pro 16h LED UV hybrid printer can produce impressive day/night and block outs on rigid or clear films. He adds, “Greater versatility with cool cure LED imaging, the printer’s mix of versatility, affordability and high-quality imaging drives greater profits and an expanding range of new product offerings.” Now, one can go to Ahmedabad demo centre of Arrow Digital to witness the speed, productivity and fantastic colour gamut of EFI inks, along with a range of applications now possible with the mid-level production LED printer with the power of EFI white.
