The Nozomi, an ultra-high-speed corrugated production solution from Electronics For Imaging, Inc., has allowed Renton, WA-based CSI to capture new market opportunities at its new trade printing operation in Santa Teresa, NM.
“After receiving a significant number of requests for quotes, samples and proofs, the word really got out about the press’s amazing capabilities," CSI VP of Manufacturing and Print Jeffery Dumbach said. "We are getting orders for display work and club retail packaging, and our newest contract is for a double-sided e-commerce packaging application. Overall, our volumes are increasing every month.”
CSI’s New Mexico facility, which has 20 employees, provides high-end, direct-to-board trade printing for a wide range of clients across the western U.S.
Dumbach said that the EFI Nozomi allows Visual Impact PrePrint to replace litho lamination jobs with direct-to-corrugated printing.
The 71-inch wide EFI Nozomi single-pass LED inkjet press is an award-winning, ultra-high-speed production system. Operating at speeds up to 246 linear feet per minute – or 10,000 35x35-inch boards per hour two-up – the press features an innovative, single-pass, piezo inkjet writing system that delivers accurate, high-fidelity color, including consistent reproduction on solid areas.
