Digital solutions from EFI part of the Bürkle booth at the LIGNA 2019
EFI is part of the Bürkle exhibition, which will take place in hall 17, booth F19 at the LIGNA exhibition from 27th to 31st May in Hannover, Germany. The Single-Pass EFI Cubik S1800 UV-LED inkjet printer in its worldwide premiere and the Single-Pass EFI Cubik S700 mineral inkjet printer will be presented at the Bürkle booth. These two groundbreaking solutions are designed for 24/7 operation in industrial production environments and offer both high quality throughput for small runs and fast mass production of decorative wood surfaces for indoor and outdoor applications.
Based on EFI's renowned single-pass printing technology, the EFI Cubik line offers the woodworking industry high-quality decoration, high-end performance and ink savings through a unique EFI ecosystem approach where the printer, inks and EFI Fiery proServer digital front-end (DFE) and colour management systems work together as a fully integrated solution, delivering value to building material manufacturers.
The EFI Cubik S700 uses mineral inks in several available colours. Mineral inks provide higher image quality without compromising the natural characteristics of the substrate as the inks penetrate the substrate, resulting in better integration with the wood. The new EFI Cubik S1800, to be launched at LIGNA, is based on UV LED inks and prints with CMYK UV inks, offering businesses a wider colour gamut, high print quality and high print speeds for panel/laminate formats. With virtually no VOCs, lower temperatures and lower energy consumption, EFI LED technology is a more environmentally friendly printing solution that enables companies to offer their customers more applications and more cost-effective material options.
EFI's industrial cubic printers, ink technologies and Fiery DFE and workflow software offer solutions for a wide variety of applications and materials, including flooring, wall coverings, furniture, countertops, shower panels, facades, paving and roofing materials for outdoor use.
