EFI (Hall 1, Stall D10, PAMEX’15) will feature advanced technologies from the industry’s leading portfolio of workflow, digital print production server technologies and industrial inkjet printers, including new products that are helping leading commercial printing businesses streamline operations, reduce costs and drive higher-margin sales.
EFI first exhibit at PAMEX comes in response to the tremendous momentum EFI customers are seeing in India. EFI’s Indian operation, Bangalore-based EFI India Private Limited, is undergoing a 30 percent expansion and is one of the company’s largest locations worldwide. EFI India employees drive many of industry’s important printing software improvements – a segment where EFI is the leading innovator for advanced graphic arts MIS/ERP, Web-to-print and digital front-end technologies like Digital StoreFront Web-to-print software, Fiery digital front ends (DFEs) and EFI DirectSmile Cross Media, is multiple-award-winning software for multi-channel communications management. With so many best-in-portfolio technologies available to meet customers’ specific needs, the suite can be viewed as a concierge service that reduces touches for printing companies and helps managers keep an eye on profits.
Another EFI product at PAMEX, the new Enterprise Packaging Suite, features the advanced EFI Radius ERP software used by label and packaging converters worldwide, now integrated with EFI PrintFlow software in a way that optimises cylinder, die and tooling management in converting operations to improve overall plant efficiency and capacity utilisation.
While, the Fiery DFE platform is the world’s leading digital print workflow technology and EFI will showcase new advancements in EFI Fiery DFEs and components of the Fiery Workflow Suite of software products. The Fiery Command WorkStation on display is a powerful, intuitive interface that print professionals can use to manage all of their Fiery Driven printers locally or remotely from Mac or Microsoft Windows clients. Printing companies can achieve complex tasks with fewer clicks using server-based automated workflows that are easy to set up and use throughout a print facility. Fiery technology is available through all the leading digital press manufacturers such as Canon, Konica Minolta, Ricoh and Xerox.
The EFI Fiery Color Profiler Suite on display provides integrated colour management functionality and quality control for printing systems. It extends the colour capabilities of Fiery Driven printers with the most advanced colour management tools available for profile creation, inspection, editing and colour quality assurance. Modular functions ensure colour accuracy and consistency across design and office applications for all types of media, while increasing productivity and return on investment.
In addition to serving as the base for much of EFI’s software development, EFI India handles inkjet printer hardware and software sales operations to printing companies that are making the transition from analogue to digital operations. PAMEX will feature a few select technologies from EFI’s industry-leading UV and LED wide- and superwide-format printer portfolio, a portfolio that includes entry-level EFI Wide-Format printers, EFI Matan roll-to-roll and hybrid printers, EFI VUTEk superwide-format printers for high-end production and EFI Reggiani printers for digital textile applications.
