“UCIC’s priority is to meet customer expectations, which are constantly increasing due to ever-changing market conditions,” UCIC president Mohnish Rikhy said. “New technologies such as digital printing with EFI’s Nozomi C18000 printer help us meet these demands and stay ahead of the competition.”
Founded in 1990, UCIC focuses on corrugated solutions for customized packaging needs – with a capacity of about 400,000 metric tons or 1.2 billion boxes on average per year.
“We were highly impressed with the dual feeding feature of the printer and the three different printing modes,” UCIC Supply Chain VP Ali Jariwala said.
The Nozomi C18000 offers three modes to optimize print quality and ink consumption: PHOTO mode allows matching of over 90% of PANTONE Colors in six colors with no ink consumption limit; POP mode reduces the color gamut slightly but delivers top quality while reducing ink consumption; and ECO mode works with a restricted color range and the lowest possible ink consumption.
The 71-inch (1.8-meter) wide EFI Nozomi C18000 prints up to 246 linear feet (75 linear meters) per minute, printing up to 10,000 35x35-inch (890x890-mm) boards per hour two-up.
