Esp technologies group is adopting LED inkjet graphics printing with two investments into the latest superwide and wide format print technology from EFI earlier this year. The company purchased a 5-metre EFI VUTEk GS5500LXr Pro roll-to-roll LED printer and a 3.2-metre VUTEk GS3250LX Pro hybrid roll/flatbed LED printer.
Specialising in providing a vast range of printed materials for leading brands in retail, plus the event, exhibition and museum sectors, esp technologies group also produces general display work for interior and exterior locations.
The company was founded in 1993 as a high-end screen printing company. It moved into superwide format digital print seven years later with the purchase of one of the first VUTEk 5300 5-metre, roll-fed platforms. Subsequent investments included a VUTEk QS3200 printer, which broadened the company’s capabilities into digital print with its ability to generate very high-quality work on rigid and flexible substrates.
Although the ability to print 5-metre wide applications is an essential requirement for esp, the company also benefits from the ability to work with multiple reels of media on the EFI VUTEk GS5500LXr Pro printer. This allows up to three separate jobs to be produced simultaneously. The high-speed capabilities of the newest roll-to-roll printer are complemented by the combination of flatbed and roll-fed versatility from the EFI VUTEk GS3250LX Pro printer, including the production of continuous boards. Because both machines benefit from EFI’s high-speed Fiery proServer digital front end, they can now print different elements of the same job knowing that colour consistency is guaranteed, too.
With brand integrity being the key philosophy behind esp technologies group’s range of services, the company has gained a high reputation both within the UK and internationally for the quality of work it produces. Since its formation, the company has specialised in building and maintaining strong relationships with its clients, working with them to develop and generate new campaigns that incorporate precision down to the finest detail. Its choice of printers is dependent on matching the demanding criteria and standards it applies from concept through to finished job, and its latest EFI VUTEk printers both meet the quality and throughput levels.
