Readers of Wideformat Online might be unfamiliar with Currie Group, since the recent addition of EFI's range of printers to the Australian-owned supplier's portfolio is its first venture into Signage and Display. Currie Group is a leading supplier of digital presses for both cut sheet and labels (HP Indigo) and a host of ancillary equipment such as finishing (Horizon, ABG) and plates (Agfa). Built on service first, Currie Group will deliver the same high standards to EFI wide format customers.

 EFI Pro 30f flatbed from Currie Group - the LED-UV flatbed with extra large vacuum table
Chosing the right wide format printer can be a daunting task these days - customers are spoiled for choice across brands, formats and productivity. The hardware and Rips have come a long way since the first flatbed UVs and superwide roll-to-rolls in the 1990s.
EFI has probably the broadest range of energy-efficient LED wide format printers. In taking on the range in all but the single-pass industrial devices such as Nozomi, Currie Group has appointed one of the industry's most knowledgeable technical people in Paul Whitehead.
As the energy builds, Currie Group is focusing on four key models and will steadily build on its EFI range offerings and support. First up is the:
EFI Pro 32r+ Wide Format Roll-to-Roll Inkjet Printer
