Electronics For Imaging, Inc., is using CCE International to showcase its EFI™ Nozomi 14000 LED press and the EFI Nozomi C18000 Plus printer, both ultra-high-speed inkjet solutions for the corrugated market. These advanced direct-to-board digital presses leverage Nozomi single-pass UV LED inkjet technology with improvements that bring enhanced productivity, reliability, value and flexibility to the industrial packaging segment.
The CCE show marks a big milestone for EFI’s Nozomi technology. “We are pleased to announce that DS Smith has ordered the 50th Nozomi printer for one of their UK facilities,” said Evandro Matteucci, EFI vice president and general manager, Packaging & Building Materials. “They are an example of an innovative customer that has leveraged Nozomi’s capabilities to move their business forward. This is the second Nozomi DS Smith has acquired, and the exceptional experience they had with their first Nozomi was a key driver in the decision to acquire another. We are delighted to continue partnering with them as they expand their capabilities in sustainable corrugated printing.”
The EFI Nozomi printer range boasts a robust design for heavy industrial use, high reliability and high productivity. It offers packaging converters excellent uptime plus the versatility to print nearly all board flute types, with enhancements to automatically reject damaged boards without stopping print production.
“Nozomi is a sustainable printing solution for corrugated,” Matteucci added, “critically important as manufacturers of all types work to reduce their environmental impact. This efficient digital alternative to analogue corrugated production delivers energy-efficient productivity, with virtually no volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions and up to 35% lower energy consumption than flexo printing. The Nozomi presses also significantly reduce ink and board waste compared with flexo and litho-lamination. Plus, unlike analogue printing methods, they do not require water for cleaning, reducing converters’ costs and their environmental footprint.”
