Toronto-based McRae Imaging has purchased its second Reggiani digital printer. The company recently selected the EFI™ Reggiani ReNOIR 340 printer from Fremont, Calif.-based Electronics For Imaging Inc. (EFI), new owner of Italy-based Reggiani Macchine. The new printer increases McRae’s maximum digital textile output to 13,000-square-feet per hour or 1,200-square-meters per hour. “There are just so many advantages to fabric printing,” said Bob Murray, co-owner and CEO, McRae Imaging. “Our machines are eco-friendly, and that’s another advantage to the Reggiani printers.”
In other EFI news, England-based Prompt Side Theatrical Drapery has invested in an EFI VUTEk® FabriVU® 340 soft-signage printer. Using the printer, the company will expand the types of scenery, backdrops and drapery it can produce for a wide variety of applications. The Vutek Fabrivu printer will allow Prompt Side to work with lightweight, polyester-based materials that are easier to deliver and install.
“I am delighted to be at the vanguard of theatrical digital print,” said Peter Baker, managing director, Prompt Side. “This is an exciting time for Prompt Side as we expand our range of products and massively increase the creative opportunities available to designers.”
