The new Nozomi 14000 LED press prints at up to 100 linear metres per minute

EFI has introduced its newest ultra high speed inkjet solution for the corrugated market: the Nozomi 14000 LED press.

Evandro Matteucci, EFI packaging and building materials vice-president and general manager, says, “This next evolution in EFI’s breakthrough Nozomi technology delivers a tailor-made solution to meet the current demands of the industrial packaging segment.”

The direct to board digital press uses Nozomi single-pass UV LED inkjet technology. EFI says it brings enhanced productivity, reliability, value and flexibility to the industrial packaging segment. At 1.4m wide, it prints at up to 100 linear metres per minute. Also, it offers new productivity modes. EFI says these offer remarkable throughput while meeting corrugated packaging manufacturers’ needs for more compact production lines.

The Nozomi 14000 LED also boasts a robust design for heavy industrial use, high reliability and high productivity. It aims to offer packaging converters high uptime plus the versatility to print nearly all board flute types, with enhancements to automatically reject damaged boards without stopping print production. 

High viscosity inks

Available with up to six colours, including white, the EFI Nozomi 14000 LED press uses high-viscosity inks. EFI says these provide outstanding colour registration and coverage. It adds that the new press’s high-speed, non-clogging, high-performance jetting printheads deliver accuracy and smooth colour gradients.
The new press also features image management and data collection software, as well as a new, intuitive interface. In addition, the latest-version EFI Fiery NZ-1000 digital front end (DFE) used to drive the press features the new Fiery system platform, Fiery FS500 Pro. This delivers for quick processing and outstanding colour management at full press speeds. Plus, the Fiery DFE can connect users with EFI IQ, a suite of cloud business intelligence and management solutions.

It offers options for a range of configurations to complement individual needs. Theese include with single or dual bottom feeders; a roller coater capable of applying varying amounts of primer; an optional varnish station that allows for a range of gloss or satin finishes; and full or bundle stacker options.

The new press will be available later this year.
