Vutek UltraVu 5300.
Vutek UltraVu 5300 digital printing system solvent-based inkjet
printer is a truly grand format billboard printer for building
wrap, vehicle wrap, bus wrap, vehicle graphics, and outdoor
signage. This class of solvent ink printer prints on uncoated
vinyl which requires no lamination.
offers a conservative and honest 2 year outdoor warranty.
Vutek backs its advertising statement in this instance with
a warranty. This is the only type of longevity claim that
you already have another inkjet printer then you realize that
"high speed" is truly low resolution. Here Vutek
again is relatively conservative and at least upfront, by
stating low res specifically and further qualifying it with
the statement, "for distant viewing, billboard applications."
Thus for highways, driving by at 70 mph, you don't notice
the traditional grainy pattern and banding. On most printers
"high speed" mode is unusable output. This varies
by printer, and you will have to judge for yourself whether
the output is acceptable to a client. At low speed, however,
the output from all current generations of Vutek printers
is good for their grand format class.
Vutek UltraVu 5300 digital printing system will receive a
more in-depth product reviews and product comparison as soon
as we locate companies that have this equipment in-house so
we can drop in and check out how they function in real-life
situations. In the meantime, I can certify that this equipment
appears well made. It's definitely Made in America, the factory
is in New Hampshire. I visited there last year. Very impressive.
you intend to park heavy-iron such as this giant machine in
your facility, better be sure your local electrical wiring
can handle the 10,000 watts that the dryer soaks up.
