Overview

F4 technology for fast and furious graphics

The EFI™ VUTEk® HS100 F4 and VUTEk HS125 F4 series hybrid flatbed/roll inkjet presses aren’t just fast. They’re furious.

That means you get four-on-the-floor speed for outdoor and distance-viewed graphics – including point of purchase, posters, signage, bus shelters, stage graphics, and in-store and corrugated folding displays.
