Electronics For Imaging installs two new printers at METROPOLE in France

PKBR Staff Writer Published 17 August 2017

Electronics For Imaging, a US-based provider of digital printing technology, has installed two new EFI VUTEk printers at METROPOLE, a Paris-based supplier of superwide graphics solutions.

The two new printers include a five meter EFI VUTEk 520 soft signage printer and an EFI VUTEk LX3 Pro hybrid roll/flatbed LED inkjet printer.

METROPOLE, having a workforce of 90, has €19m in revenues and aims at designing 300,000m2 of banners, adhesive and other graphics applications annually.

The firm also offers its services to desktop publishing and design, management of administrative requests, finishing work, welding, sewing and stapling, and on-site installation of printed jobs.

METROPOLE associate director Patrice Boquého said: “METROPOLE is recognized as having the most reliable print technology in the heart of Paris. We have been able to offer our clients a production operation capable of producing any creation.”

“Our purchasing policy aims for exceptional equipment. That is why over the past year, we have acquired new superwide technologies, a unique offering in our territory. The EFI VUTEk FabriVU 520 and the EFI VUTEk LX3 Pro, which recently arrived, reinforce this policy. They allow for more creative freedom and that creates real advantages for our market.”

The new VUTEk LX3 Pro printer will enhance the graphic production of the firm by enabling embossed designs with multilayer print capability.

Resolutions up to 2,400dpi and four-level grayscale printing with 4-18picoliter drop sizes will be offered by the new VUTEk FabriVU soft signage printer to enhance the quality of printing.

“In this very competitive market where the clients are more and more demanding, you have to know how to put forward ideas, innovative solutions, and a complete service – as well as maintain deadlines – to be different , because decisions are made later and later and no matter what happens, the printing remains the last link in the chain.”, Boquého added.
