MX Display in Derbyshire has installed an EFI Vutek h5 from CMYUK. The hybrid LED printer replaces the company’s existing Vutek GS3250LX Pro 3.2m, with its superior print speeds set to increase the company’s capacity by 50%.

‘The h5 was always the front runner. We toyed with several flatbeds and roll-to-roll machines but our other hybrid worked well for us,’ said David Lister, sales director at MX Display. ‘We wanted to increase capacity, up production speeds and become generally more efficient.’

MX Display, which has been in business for over 25 years, offers a host of solutions such as floor, wall and window graphics, acoustic solutions, fabric displays, portable displays, signage and wayfinding. It services multiple market sectors including leisure and tourism, heritage, exhibitions, events, corporate branding, construction, retail, education and healthcare.

‘We’re quite broad in what we offer,’ Mr Lister added. ‘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 3.2m h5 prints at a resolution of 1200dpi and offers nine-layer print capability in a single pass. LED curing allows the printer to support a wide 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.

‘At the moment we’re seeing many business sectors preparing to re-open,’ Mr Lister concluded. ‘We’ve come out of this leaner and more efficient thanks to our new equipment. We are ready for all the new positives out there.’
