The EFI H1625 LED is a mid-level production printer designed to maximize image quality with four-colour-plus-white and grayscale printing capabilities as well as uptime with simple, automated operational and maintenance features. Its LED technology facilitates lower running costs (via decreased power consumption) and printing on high-value, specialty rigid and flexible substrates up to 2” thick that yields excellent margins. It outputs “near photographic” image quality, saturated colours and smooth colour gradations with true, eight-level variable drop grayscale printing. Resolutions include 300 x 300 dpi (8 levels of grayscale), 600 x 600 dpi (4 & 8 levels of grayscale), 900 x 900 dpi (4 & 8 levels of grayscale), and 1200 x 600 dpi (8 levels of grayscale).

The H1625 comes standard with white ink and single-pass, multi-layer print capabilities. It prints on a wide range of substrates while increasing productivity and reducing maintenance with instant on/off LED lamps. Options include a choice of EFI H1625 LED 3M or POP inks. The printer also offers NGSI a greener printing solution that integrates easily with EFI Web-to-Print and MIS/ERP solutions with native JDF connectivity.
