While wide- and large-format printers are able to produce a range of work, some companies require bigger machines to take on more challenging projects.

Grand- and superwide format print machines are amongst the most impressive technologies in the industry. The quality that these giant devices can produce is quite remarkable and help open up various markets for those companies looking outside the more traditional sectors.

FESPA 2017 played a host to many of the leading manufacturers of grand and superwide format printers, and visitors had the opportunity to speak with experts to find out exactly what this sort of technology can do for their business. The exhibition ran from May 8-12 in the Hamburg Messe in Germany and was expected to attract attendees from across the global print market.

One of the leading brands in the grand- and super wide-format that was featured at FESPA 2017 is EFI, whom spoke to visitors through its range of solutions.

One of the main technologies that was shown on the EFI booth at the event is the Vutek FabriVu 520, a is 5.2m-wide and has a top speed of 446sq m/hr, with production image quality up to 242sq m hr and POP image quality at 157sq m/hr.

EFI also showed off its Vutek 5r, a 5m-wide LED roll-to-roll machine that can print at speeds of up to 455sq m/hr and has a top resolution of 1,200dpi. The device can also handle a range of flexible and rigid media and has the ability to produce applications such as billboards, floor graphics and wallpaper.
