Rocket Graphics is delighted to have invested in an EFI VUTEk 5r+ UV LED 5m roll-to-roll printer from CMYUK to increase its production capabilities in response to increased demand in the post-COVID business environment.
This new printing technology offers high-rated throughput speeds and a range of options for users, as well as new innovations, including a redesigned platform chassis and a printing algorithm that uses pulse, temperature, voltage, and frequency for improved density and quality.
The VUTEk 5r+ will join Rocket Graphics’ existing EFI equipment, which includes an EFI VUTEk LX3 UV LED 3.2m-wide hybrid and an EFI VUTEk FabriVU 340i in-line dye sublimation printer. The company has a long-standing relationship with CMYUK, and the new printer will enable Rocket Graphics to confidently handle large projects and schedule in higher volumes for 2023.

“It’s not just a super productive print machine. Its green credentials sit perfectly with our full company sustainability initiative. We are closing the loop of ‘first use’ eco materials through recycling print media and to further enhance this, we need the greenest machines available.”
“We all need to reduce our carbon footprint and minimise any negative eco impacts. Having equipment that enables the use of planet-friendly inks and substrates that requires less energy doing it, is part of that process.”
“Investing in the EFI VUTEk 5r+ was the obvious choice. For us, VUTEk printers have always delivered the 4 most important elements for a graphics business: speed, quality, reliability, and efficiency,”
“2022 has been a record year for Rocket and 2023 will continue the trend. Not only have we retained our pre Covid clients, but we have also won many new contracts and have teamed up with many new blue-chip clients.”
“Fulfilment is a cornerstone of Rocket’s business and the sheer speed and superb print quality of the 5r+ will allow us to achieve this 100%. This is essential for when we have exhibitions and multiple events happening simultaneously, speed is of the essence. The leap in productivity provided by the VUTEk 5r+ allows us to confidently schedule in the significantly higher volumes that 2023 will bring,” says Antony.
The arrival of the printer will also enable the company to confidently handle the largest projects effortlessly.
“Our upgraded production capabilities that are in lockstep with our existing and future eco-friendly initiatives will ensure that our growth will be underpinned by a compelling and robust competitive edge. We are ready for the opportunities that 2023 will undoubtedly bring.”
