Orora purchases two EFI Nozomi presses for its facilities in Australia and the U.S.

Silicon Valley printing technology company Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (EFI) and Australian packaging innovator Orora Limited have expanded their global partnership, bringing additional, state-of-the art EFI™ production technologies to key Orora operations. The agreement includes Orora’s purchase of two EFI Nozomi C18000 single-pass LED inkjet corrugated packaging presses. The new presses are scheduled to be installed at Orora facilities in Melbourne, Australia and in Los Angeles, California, in May 2018.

“The new EFI Nozomi C18000 digital printers are genuine game changers for our corrugated packaging customers, delivering magazine quality imagery directly onto corrugated board at ultra-high-speed,” said Nigel Garrard, Orora Managing Director and CEO. “We are the first company to purchase and install the Nozomi printer in Australia and one of the first to use this print technology in North America. Our investment in these state-of-the-art printers demonstrates Orora’s commitment to keeping our business and customers at the forefront of the market.”

EFI’s partnership with Orora also extends into the production workflow space, with Orora collaborating with EFI on workflow innovations, including technologies used in the EFI Corrugated Packaging Suite manufacturing execution system. The overall partnership for packaging production technologies is the next major step EFI and Orora have taken together after the recent EFI VUTEk® superwide-format printer purchases Orora completed for its U.S. point-of-purchase and visual communications business, Orora Visual.
