EFI showcases new Pro 30f flatbed printer

EFI launched the second flatbed printer, the Pro 30f, at Fespa from 14-17 May, at Munich, Germany. The printer boasts a linear drive instead of a belt, similar to EFI’s H-series hybrids, and which should lead to more accurate carriage movements, and ultimately better image quality. There’s a roll-to-ground option for printing to roll media up to 3m wide. It also includes a Fiery ProServer Core front end, complete with Fast RIP, and EFI claims to have developed a new user interface to help with the layout of the media on the bed.

The Pro 30f has a 3x2m bed and can print full bleed on media of that size. It will also take media up to 10cm high and 180kg in weight. EFI says that the table is flat to within 50 microns and that this is adjustable. There’s a six-zone vacuum, with users able to select the appropriate combination of vacuum zones. Interestingly, EFI says that the bed comes with extra pins to make it easier to work with jigs, which should open up more industrial print applications

The standard configuration for these printers is eight colours plus white. I believe that EFI has also improved the layering as they can now print up to nine layers in a single pass, which enables some pretty cool backlighting effects, where different lighting states can display different versions of an image so that you don’t just have a static display.
