Durham Box, a UK-based corrugated packaging manufacturer, purchased an EFI
Nozomi C18000 single-pass, ultra-high-speed LED inkjet corrugated packaging press from Electronics For Imaging, Inc.
“The image quality, running speed and ease of changing between prints are hugely attractive,” said Dan Morris, joint managing director of Durham Box. “With this, we are confident we can operate in several markets with a single machine.”
Scheduled for installation this summer, the 71-inch (1.8-meter) wide Nozomi press operates at speeds up to 246 linear feet (75 linear meters) per minute.
“Image quality is a very important factor, perhaps the most important in fact,” said Morris. “We regularly get asked to print jobs that are too challenging for our own flexo capabilities and as a consequence, we need to manipulate the artwork which is time-consuming and ultimately leads to a simplified image – and that can be frustrating to the customer.
“The wide range of print finishes is a great feature from the Nozomi,” he added, “as it has the ability to produce print that has similar qualities to flexo – only better – with high gloss photo-quality print.”
