Durham Box adds white UV LED inks for its Nozomi

Durham Box is the first packaging manufacturer in the UK to upgrade its EFI™ Nozomi C18000 single-pass inkjet digital corrugated printer with white UV LED ink from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. The upgrade to print with white ink gives the County Durham-based corrugated packaging business the power to expand its customer reach as well as provide its customers a competitive edge – thanks to the ability to print a broader range of high-end packaging, point-of-sale (POS) display graphics and free-standing display unit (FSDU) designs.

Using EFI Nozomi white ink on corrugated extends the colour gamut Durham Box can achieve and gives the company the ability to accurately represent its customers’ brand colours on brown kraft board. The white ink also allows for accurate printing of photographic images, including vivid designs, while maintaining the eco-friendly look of the brown board surface. Plus, Durham Box can achieve a higher-value appearance for many jobs using white ink as a base under colour designs, as the white ink transforms the matte appearance of CMYK inks on uncoated boards into a highly attractive gloss.

“Having the ability to print with white ink will give our customers an option that until now has not been available through this technology,” said Andy Smith, Durham Box POS Business Development Director. “This will allow Durham Box to work with some major brands creating that total display and packaging solution. Of course, being the first in the UK to offer white ink confirms Durham Box’s intention to be a major provider of 3D/POS/display and packaging across all market sectors.”

He continues, “Since purchasing the Nozomi last year, the immediate focus was to enhance our packaging offering to existing and potential new clients, offering a fast turnaround, high quality digital solution, especially for customers in e-commerce and display. This in turn has delivered significant growth for Durham Box.”
