At the recently concluded virtual.drupa 2021, EFI launched its entry-level hybrid flatbed and roll-fed inkjet production printer, the EFI Pro 30h. At 3.2 meters wide, EFI said the Pro 30h printer is ideal for commercial print shops, sign shops, and in-plant print departments looking to start, upgrade or add board and roll-to-roll print jobs to their wide-format capabilities.

“The EFI Pro 30h hybrid LED entry-level production printer is strategically positioned to offer superior image quality, versatility, and productivity at a competitive price point,” said Thomas Krumm, product manager at EFI. In addition, it can print on a wide variety of substrates for a substantial gamut of applications that an entry-level signage or decoration printer or a mid-level business in India may find profitable.

The printer is supplied with two white channels as standard and an optional clear ink for unique, high-value prints that require high gloss images, special effects, and multilayer printing. In addition, it has a continuous board printing capability, also a standard feature that allows print businesses to maximize the use of the printer’s full production speeds on large board substrates or by simultaneously printing multiple small boards at one go.

Various features of EFI Pro 30h

The Pro 30h contains input feed mandrels for dual-roll printing, helping overall throughput. It is designed to make alternating or switching between rigid and flexible substrates faster and easier. The printer can output at speeds up to 2,477 square feet per hour. It features an EFI Fiery proServer core digital front end (DFE) with FAST RIP acceleration technology for quick file processing, robust spot-color control, cut marks creation, color profiling, and color verification features.

The company performed a virtual demonstration session of the Pro 30h from its Londonderry excellence center as a part of its virtual.drupa show.


In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
