    EFI Continues Strategic Inkjet Investments with Jettable Ltd.
    New Investment Reaffirms EFI’s Continued Dedication into Growing Market Demand for Inkjet Solutions
    CITY, Calif.–EFI the world leader in customer-focused digital printing
    innovation, today announced that it has completed a strategic
    investment in Jettable, an inkjet technology company specializing in
    digital printing onto ceramic substrates. Based out of Netanya, Israel,
    Jettable’s product portfolio will add to the ever-expanding suite of
    inkjet solutions offered by EFI, including the VUTEk (superwide inkjet
    for the display graphics market), and Jetrion (digital inkjet for the
    labels and packaging market) products, as well as investments in Kornit
    (textiles market) and Raster Printers (which compliments VUTEk by
    specializing in the midrange wide format space.) Jettable, founded in
    2003, offers a line of ceramic inks and unique ultra-fine ceramic
    pigments with distinct benefits that create a sustainable competitive

    Building on the success of the VUTEk, inkjet
    continues to be the strategic high-growth engine for EFI. This new
    product offering reaffirms EFI’s commitment into inkjet printing
    solutions, offering new market penetration for EFI’s customer base into
    the architectural and design markets.EFI will provide equity capital
    toward the development of the next generation high-speed, single pass
    production inkjet printer for ceramic tiles. Jettable is currently
    working with Kornit (another EFI investment) to offer a modified
    platform for the specialty tile decoration market.The inherent
    characteristics of ceramic composition inks create the need for a
    specialized flatbed inkjet printer with color management tuned to the
    distinctive ceramic colors in order to generate the widest and most
    attractive color gamut. Jettable has designed a modified print engine
    capable of high-quality printing onto numerous types of porous and
    non-porous ceramic surfaces.

    This breakthrough digital print
    technology will replace current methods of printing such as screen and
    roller printing with their high levels of waste inks and is designed
    for both short-run and in-line production. The main advantages of the
    Jettable ceramic decoration technology are variable run length and
    non-contact printing with the ability to handle uneven surfaces. “The
    introduction of digital printing enables new applications of color-rich
    ceramic tiles while providing a reduction in waste. This continues to
    support EFI’s green initiative while providing lessened set-up costs.
    Our customer’s will benefit duo fold,” said Ghilad Dziesietnik, EFI’s
    CTO.“We are pleased that EFI has identified our breakthrough technology
    as a true asset to their best-in-class product offering. We are
    delighted to join forces with EFI, our vision for industry-leading
    digital inkjet technologies can now fully be realized,” said, Warren
    Green, Director and Founder of Jettable.The investment into Jettable
    and their breakthrough technologies displays EFI’s continued commitment
    and dedication to the digital inkjet market and their mission to
    provide customers with a logical migration path from analog to digital
    throughout all market segments.
