Complete Design & Packaging takes first EFI Nozomi 14000 in USA

Complete Design & Packaging (CDP) is doubling its investment in the single-pass inkjet digital print technology.

The Concord, NC-based company is installing its second ultra-high-speed Nozomi direct-to-corrugated solution from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. – a new EFI™ Nozomi 14000 LED digital press. CDP was the first business in the U.S. to install EFI’s 71-inch wide Nozomi C18000 system, and will once again be the first in the U.S. with EFI’s new, 55-inch-wide Nozomi 14000 LED press.

“Our relationship with EFI thus far has been a respectful partnership,” said Howard Bertram, President, CDP. “When the discussion of another printer became a topic of conversation, it was easy to place EFI at the top of our option list. With their constant R&D and open communication, the choice was made easy. We strive for excellence through constant improvement here at Complete Design & Packaging, and EFI has been a tremendous influence on our success. We look forward to taking the next big step with the installation of the Nozomi 14000 LED.”

Representing EFI’s continued investment in innovation, the 14000 LED model can run at faster speeds up to 328 linear feet per minute with new productivity modes, offering remarkable throughput while meeting corrugated packaging manufacturers’ needs for more compact production lines. The Nozomi 14000 LED also boasts a robust design for heavy industrial use, high reliability and high productivity. It offers packaging converters high uptime, and excellent versatility – with the ability to print nearly all board flute types.

Scheduled for installation in Q2, CDP’s newest single-pass inkjet digital press will also include a new version of the EFI Fiery® NZ-1000 digital front end (DFE), an extremely fast, robust, and scalable blade server. The press also connects with EFI IQ™, a robust, comprehensive suite of cloud business intelligence and management solutions.

“We are excited to be bringing this exciting new member of our award-winning Nozomi product line to market,” said Evandro Matteucci, vice president and general manager, Packaging & Building Materials, EFI. “And we are pleased to expand our ongoing partnership with CDP and to be able to help Howard Bertram and his team continue growing their business with our high-quality, highly effective single-pass inkjet solutions and services.”
