The EFI VUTEk h3 will replace an older EFI VUTEk GS 3250 printer and operate alongside Aztec’s existing Esko X-44 digital cutting table, which was installed 18 months ago and also purchased from CMYUK.

The new EFI device is a belt-driven 3.2m super-wide, industrial volume printer, featuring a 10-channel system and can output up to nine layers in a single pass at high resolution.

It also offers a one-day field upgrade path to the H5 configuration that sports five rows of print heads.

Tom Wilton, who founded Aztec in 1988 with Chris Jameson, explains that the decision to invest was made after visiting the specialist EFI demonstration site in Belgium.

“The trip to the EFI demonstration facility gave us a thorough understanding of how the printer works, what the improvements are compared to other machines,” Wilton says.

“Unlike a trade show setting, we were able to put the printer through its paces in a real hands-on, one–to-one manner. At trade shows, stand demonstrations usually output highly coloured, attractive prints, but here we could really test our true requirements such as a solid red.”
