Overview

Pro power.

It’s what gives the EFI™ Pro 24f LED flatbed printer its sharp competitive edge. It contains the most powerful features from LED and variable drop grayscale head technology to its true flatbed design with moving gantry and multi-zoned vacuum table. It’s the strategic choice for printers producing graphic arts, art reproductions, membrane switches, graphic overlays – and other specialty applications up to 2 inches thick – as well as overflow printing and where precision and fine-detail, image quality, and speed are critical to meeting customers’ demands.

The EFI Pro 24f flatbed printer delivers the most powerful results with outstanding image quality at production speeds, broad color gamut, optimized ink usage and access to more profitable jobs.
