EFI Enters Wood-Printing Market with New Cubik for Inkjet Printing on Wood
At the Ligna trade show being held in Hannover, Germany.Electronics For Imaging (EFI) previewed its new Cubik system for industrial digital inkjet wood-decoration printing
The firm says that “thanks to digital printing, there are no limits regarding individualisation and decoration of wooden surfaces.” EFI Cubik inkjet-printing technology for printing in the wood industry is said to provide both premium quality short-runs, as well as high-speed mass production of decorative surfaces for indoor and outdoor applications on wood.
Based on EFI’s single-pass inkjet printing technology, EFI’s Cubik is also said to provide the wood industry “top-quality decoration, maximum performance and ink savings” through EFI printing that “gets the printer, inks, and Fiery proServer color-management system all working together as a fully integrated concept solution, providing value to building-materials manufacturers.”
With up to eight printing bars, EFI says that a wide variety of decoration effects can be directly applied to wooden surfaces, not just CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black). As a digital printing system, Cubik supports both, short run, variable prints as well as high-volume runs. Cubik’s main features include:
- Printing width: up to 1.814 mm
- Print speed: up to 75 linear m/min
