MX Display installs EFI VUTEk h5 from CMYUK
MX Display in Derbyshire has recently installed an EFI VUTEk h5 purchased from CMYUK. This new hybrid LED printer replaces the company’s existing EFI VUTEk GS3250LX Pro 3.2m, and due to its industrial print speeds, is set to increase capacity by 50 percent The h5 joins a printer portfolio that includes HP Latex technology, plus Mimaki and Epson dye-sublimation printers.

David Lister, Sales Director at MX Display, explained: “The h5 was always the front runner. We toyed with several different flatbed and roll-to-roll options, but our other hybrid worked well for us and we wanted to increase capacity, speed up production  and become generally more efficient.”

Originally established 25 years ago, MX Display has been in business for over 25 years evolving from a photographic house into a high-end design, producer and installer of printed graphics and signage. It has a long reach, working with many blue-chip companies and creative agencies, to whom it offering a host of solutions such as floor, wall and window graphics, acoustic solutions, fabric displays, portable displays, signage and wayfinding. In addition, it services multiple markets, including the leisure and tourism, heritage, exhibition, events, corporate, construction, retail, education and healthcare sectors

David continued: “We’re quite broad in what we offer. We are very installation-based and special projects are key to what we do. We’re in the high-end of the market, delivering quality work which is often viewed very close up.”

The h5 has the versatility and the power to cope with this level of top-end work and is the result of EFI VUTEk’s reimagined and reengineered high-volume super-wide, hybrid inkjet platform. At 3.2m wide, with a resolution of 1200dpi and eight colour modes plus white, it offers a nine-layer printing capability – all in a single pass to achieve smooth shadows, gradients and transitions, with clear text quality.

Encapsulating powerful LED technology, the h5 supports an extended range of substrates, which includes lower cost and added-value speciality materials, all of which can be handled by automated loading, stacker systems and super duty winders.

According to a Fogra study, the h5 drives down operating costs with up to 82 percent less energy consumption and fewer consumable parts. For MX Display, this eco consideration is very important, in line with its increasing environmental focus and, to this end, it is currently evaluating new materials from CMYUK’s Eco range, as well as guiding clients towards products made from recycled yarns where possible.

In common with many other sign and print companies, MX Display went into overdrive during Lockdown creating large volumes of floor graphics, safety signage and acrylic screens. However, while its usual slew of early year campaigns were paused for obvious reasons, it is delighted to report that normal work levels have now resumed.

David concluded: “At the moment we’re seeing many business sectors preparing to re-open and, since we’ve come out of this leaner and more efficient thanks to our latest purchase, we are ready for all the new positives out there.”
